Welcome to the Made For Greatness podcast. I’m Sterling Jay, and today on episode 29, I’m going to be talking about building mental toughness. Now I almost didn’t name this episode, building mental toughness because it conjured for me, this idea of people who run obstacle courses or train for marathons. Like I was thinking of the tough Mudder race or the Spartan race. And I thought, Oh, I wonder if they’re not going to love the phrase mental toughness, but I decided that that is exactly what it is. We are getting gritty and we are building mental toughness and it can feel uncomfortable, but man, when you build it, it feels amazing. You feel unstoppable, you feel so powerful. And I just wanted Catholic moms to know that that’s available to them. No matter your personality, no matter what you do in your day to day life, you can build mental toughness and then have this unshakable confidence like, Hey, you can’t touch me.


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.
