Sexual Freedom by Christopher West

 CLICK HERE to hear a preview of this talk

From the CD Sleeve: If you can’t say “no” to sexual desires, what is your “yes” worth? Freedom exists for the sake of love. However, the modern idea of it leads to slavery. In this enlightening presentation, Christopher West shows us how authentic sexual freedom can deliver us from the empty promises of “sexual liberation”. Christopher is a popular theologian who specializes in making the dense scholarship of Pope John Paul II’s "Theology of the Body" accessible to a wide audience.

My take: I really, really liked this CD. Christopher West shares from his own life and struggles. He has an ability to make deep theology and sex make sense. He has spent the last decade or so distilling Saint John Paul II's teachings so that the average person can not only understand them, but live them. In our day and age when Freedom means doing whatever you want, we learn that True Freedom is doing what we should.

In this CD West gives an example of freedom, from all places, a prisoner in jail, from the movie Shawshank Redemption.  Click here for the video from the movie to which he refers.

The Saving Power of Divine Mercy by Fr. Jason Brooks LC

To help us avail ourselves of that loving mercy, Fr. Brooks focuses on what we know of God's Mercy, our response to His Love, how we can become merciful to others, and how to become apostles of mercy. Bonus: At the end of this presentation, the Divine Mercy chaplet is led by Fr. Francis Peffley, Mark Forrest - an Irish tenor, and Muriel Forrest.

The Book That Sparked the Divine Mercy Movement

The Diary chronicles God's message given through St. Faustina to the world to turn to His mercy. In it, we are reminded to trust the Divine Mercy in Jesus and seek His forgiveness. And as Christ is merciful, so, too, are we instructed to be merciful to others. The message of Divine Mercy has become an integral part of Catholic faith, including the celebration of the Feast of Divine Mercy on the Sunday after Easter.

Rising Above~ From Tragedy to Triumph by John O'Leary

From the CD Sleeve: At nine years old, John O'Leary was involved in a horrific incident and was given only a one percent change to survive. Today, nearly three decades later, he travels the world teaching others how to truly live. In this presentation, John draws on his life's experience to intimately illustrate how God often uses our greatest challenges to positively transform our lives.

My take:
This is a riveting true story. 
I listened to this talk with my 9 year old daughter and neither of us could turn it off! It was especially meaningful to my 9 year old as John O'Leary was 9 years old when his accident occurred. Best part is John doesn't just live in the past story. He takes all the lessons of the darkest time in his life and shows how they apply to each and every one of us, today, in my life, right now.

I then listened to the talk with my 12 year old daughter, who was reluctant to listen.  At the end she said "Are all your CDs this good?"
Yes, they are, they really are!

You can't help but smile and feel grateful when you listen to this CD. Great positive message.

Here's what others are saying: 

John's triumph is beyond inspirational, and the witness of those who helped him along the way will change you forever! It is impossible to listen to this story without coming to a deeper understanding of what it means to fulfill the law of Christ as your heart cries out, "What more can I do?"Mary - Poplar Grove, IL
This is an account of a steady restoration of faith, hope, and love which only could come from the presence of a living God.Julie- Sterling, VA

Keep Holy the Sabbath by Dr. Tim Gray

 "Keep Holy the Sabbath" is the April Cd of the Month club selection. 

Join our CD of the Month club before April 15 to receive this brand new talk as your first CD. 


From the CD sleeve: Dr. Timothy Gray is the president of the Augustine Institute and is a well known Scripture scholar and Catholic speaker. With fascinating detail and examples, Dr. Gray here discusses the profound importance for individuals, and for modern society, of properly observing Sunday as the Lord’s Day by exploring God’s gift of the Sabbath in the Old Testament. He aims to help us reclaim our Sunday from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives.
Dr. Tim Gray, President of the Augustine Institute

My Take: As a mother of 6, I know first hand how busy family life is. It may seem to many of us that Sunday is the "catch up" day to do all the work that got missed. It may seem that Sunday is "sports" day where we drive all our kids around to soccer/baseball/volleyball/basketball/etc. It may seem like Sunday is the only day of the week that we actually get to sleep in. But Dr. Gray helps us RECLAIM the true intention of the Sunday. Sunday is a gift to us from God to enter into Worship. A day to remember that God is our Father and we can rest in His loving care and be renewed and recharged for the mission He has entrusted to us.

If you are tired of the rat race, tired of the busy-ness, tired of running on empty, or just plain tired, you will love the HOPE and the PRACTICAL suggestions on this CD. 

Join our CD of the Month club before April 15 to receive this brand new talk as your first CD. 

I recently met Dr. Tim Gray out in Denver at the Augustine Institute. The Augustine Institute has created a brand new faith formation program Symbolon. IT IS AMAZING, see more about Symbolon at the my blog by CLICKING HERE
