The $2000 Lemon, Woes of a Veteran Podcaster, and Daddy Daughter Day

Ben and Tom turned 17 and 15 last April and now go to a high school that requires us to drive them 20 minutes each way every day.  With Ben on an after school robotics team, there are days we make this trip 3 times, plus Tommy has to go to work four days a week.  So to cut down on driving, we bought a secondhand car so Ben can finally get his license.  It all goes down from there.

Plus, Mac and Greg’s new podcast “Watch a Movie with Mac and Greg” is off to a great start, but would be doing even better if Greg hadn’t messed up the recordings of three episodes so far.

Lastly, in an effort to give our kids one-on-one time, Lily planned a daddy/daughter day with Greg.

Does Meditation Really Help Mental Health?

I’ve never really liked the idea of just plain meditation, in part because I never really understood why I should meditate on nothing, and in another part because whenever I meditated on nothing, I ended up either thinking of more items for my to do list, or I ended up just complaining to God.

That changed earlier this year, though, when I learned an incredibly simplified method of meditation that is not new age-y or overly distractive.

So in this episode I share with you a simple way to find more calm in just 5-10 minutes each day.

But I also want to share with you some of my own tricks for deeper prayer, because studies show that both meditation and prayer provide benefits to your brain.

The Pew Report, Our Video Process, and Scripture Study Roadblocks

We talk about the creative process of trying to figure out what kind of YouTube video will get the most views, the grand opening of our t-shirt swag shop, and we reflect on the recent Pew Report stating that 69% of Catholics don’t believe in the Real Presence of the Eucharist and how that’s reflected in the recent death of Jeffrey Epstein and multiple mass shootings across the United States.

Beth Schrader and Caring For Your Spouse

Throughout their years of marriage, Beth Schrader’s husband has struggled with depression, anxiety and ADHD.  After hearing us discuss Greg’s mental health issues on our “The Hidden Battle” podcast, Beth started to put the pieces together that her husband’s battles were not just occasional, but every day battles that become smaller but never quite go away.   

Not knowing how best to help her husband, Beth began battling shame and worry that, fortunately, lead to more positive conversations and approaches and mental health within their home.

Beth courageously volunteered to share her story as the spouse of someone suffering from mental health issues and joins Greg to discuss the difficulties of loving someone who is in such pain.
