    05:00 -06:00
    01-08-19

    GUEST: 

    Michael and Alicia Hernon, founders of The Messy Family

    People say to us all the time, “You have 10 kids??  How do you do it?” By trial and error, just like you!  Kids don’t know (thankfully!) that most of the time parents are just making things up as we go. We remember looking for someone to tell us the perfect way to be a parent, but then we finally realized – there is no perfect way!   We are still in the trenches with our children from 6-23 and a grandchild on the way as well. Parents never stop learning. Raising our 10 children has shown us that being a parent is difficult, but not impossible. We are passionate about families and we are here to give you hope!

  • (Dr. Brian Clayton/Dr. Douglas Kries) Faith and Reason: Are They Enemies or Friends?
    05:00 -06:00
    01-16-19

    GUESTS:

    Dr. Brian Clayton

    In my teaching, I hope to challenge students to live examined lives committed to the pursuit of the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. This is my aim no matter the course I’m teaching or the career my students are pursuing. Philosophy is a way of life aimed at these things. In pursuit of these goals, I find literature and film (particularly popular film) to be ways of exploring what it is to live a good human life as a “sovereign wayfarer” (Walker Percy). I also love soccer, American football, basketball, and NASCAR.

    Dr. Douglas Kries

    Dr. Douglas Kries is a professor of philosophy at Gonzaga University who is a little embarrassed even to have a personal website, but who still offers it in the hope that others will find it helpful.

    GUEST:

    Leonard Sax, M.D., Ph.D.

    Since 2001, I have visited and worked with more than 400 schools, universities, juvenile justice facilities, communities of faith, corporations, pre-Ks and nursery schools, community groups and parent groups, learning from them and sharing what I have learned. That work, combined with my 30+ years as both a physician (M.D.) and as a Ph.D. psychologist, has given me a unique perspective on the challenges facing young people today, and what girls and boys need to fulfill their potential. Please contact me so that we can discuss whether my expertise might be a good fit for your group, or whether you might want me to speak for your school or organization.
