Hello, my friends. Welcome to Made For Greatness, a podcast for Catholic moms. I am your host today, Lorissa Horn. And as always, I am so excited to be here with you today. Now I’m gonna kick off this episode by sharing a story with you. This happened to me when I was in my early twenties. I had recently gone through a pretty difficult breakup and not only was this like a very devastating time in my life, a devastating breakup. I had been dating this guy that I really, at the time I thought I was gonna marry him, but things just weren’t working out. We ended up breaking up. I was heartbroken, devastated, terrified that I was gonna be lonely for the rest of my life. All of that. And then, not only that, but you know how it is. It seems like a lot of times in our lives when one really difficult thing happens, another difficult thing happens, and it just feels like everything spirals out of control.


Lorissa Horn & Sterling Jaquith

Sterling and Lorissa are very different moms. Lorissa lives in town, her family loves playing baseball, and she’s proud to send them to Catholic school. Sterling lives in the country, her family loves camping, and she unschools the kids.

The thing these women have in common, an unyielding devotion to Christ. Seriously, if you hang out with either of them, they’re gonna talk about Jesus, a lot. He’s the center of their life.
