My cutie-pie Texan friend Amanda Perales joined me for this episode, where we talk about the treasure trove of practical wisdom and inspiration that are the saints! Amanda is a Catholic wife and mother of two little boys, and she blogs (often about saints) at Erring on the Side of Love.
We start off the episode diving into the who, what and why of Catholic saints. Then, Amanda and I get into a great conversation about how the saints can be a fantastic tool to inspire perspective and good character in our children. Amanda gives some great tips on celebrating the feast days of the saints at home in fun and age-appropriate ways.
