This Is Not A Utopia

May 17, 2023

In this episode, Lorissa discusses navigating the storms of life and how to find acceptance and peace even when it feels like our lives are out of control. She shares a small insight from a talk recorded by Monsignor Shea, author of “From Christendom to Apostolic Mission: Pastoral Strategies for an Apostolic Age” that helped her accept the storms she faced in her life this past week and brought about peace and clarity, helping her find God’s presence even in the midst of difficult times. Join us as we explore the beauty of seeking God in all moments in our imperfect world.

Hello my beautiful sisters in Christ. This is Lorissa Horn and I hope you are doing well. The topic that I want to dive into today on this episode is lightly inspired by a powerful talk by Monsignor Shea who is the president of University of Mary. He gave it at our Idaho Catholic Men’s Conference earlier this year. In January. And although I was at the Men’s Conference, my husband helped to put it on and he shared the recording of the talk with me a couple weeks later and it was incredible. It was a deeply intellectual and very powerful talk and I’m not even going to be able to do it justice. But really what I want to share with you today is a pretty profound takeaway that I’ve taken from it and I’ve applied it to my life, which in particular has helped me a lot this week.


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.
