We were in Phoenix recently for a wedding and after Mass we went outside to take pictures with the newlyweds and realized that we were right across the street from the place where we went on our very first date almost 12 years ago! Join us as we reminisce on the romance of the good ‘ol days.
What better way to learn about birds than to get up close and personal with them. We’d always enjoyed them from afar, but we wanted to bring them closer for a better look. That’s why we made some homemade bird treats with the boys with a special appearance from our God daughter Maya!
On this third episode of the live stream we answer questions about our recent video on natural family planning, our review of Disney’s latest Beauty and the Beast, the importance of communication in marriage, plus everything else we’ve been up to lately including serving on three retreats in one week!
Even before we got married we decided that we didn’t want to use any form of contraception including condoms or birth control. Our OB-GYN looked at us like we were crazy when we told her we didn’t use birth control. Many people feel the same. In this video we sit down and talk about our choice not to contracept and explain our reasoning. We also explain what we do instead of contraception, which is the hidden art of natural family planning.
This week we reveal some life-changing news. There is a big change happening in our family. In this short episode we share how we’re dealing with it. All this while we wait for the Main Street Electrical Parade at Disneyland!
In our culture we tend to spend all day indoors, shut up in our spaces, but there is so much beauty all around us. We challenge you to make it a habit to get outside as a family as often as you can! And driving doesn’t count! Speeding along at 45 mph you miss all the small things. When you’re walking you will notice so many things, you will meet people, you will feel better. We promise!
Once a month our family has committed to make sack lunches for the homeless in our parish community. It’s actually part of a service our Church offers every day to make sure that these people are being fed. They know that they can come to the parish office for lunch everyday. That’s one less meal that they have to worry about.
The internet brings the world to us in powerful ways, allowing our kids to explore whatever interests them. With a tablet and WI-FI connection kids can have the world at their fingertips… literally! But that also brings some dangers with it.
