If you’re feeling behind in December, if you’re wondering if you bought enough presents or created a special enough experience for your kids… the core of these fears is about enoughness.

RESOURCES MENTIONED ON THE SHOW
“And when night comes, and you look back over the day and see how fragmentary everything has been, and how much you planned that has gone undone, and all the reasons you have to be embarrassed and ashamed: just take everything exactly as it is, put it in God’s hands and leave it with Him.” -Edith Stein
“Lord, help me to live this day, quietly, easily. To lean upon Thy great strength, trustfully, restfully. To wait for the unfolding of Thy will, patiently, serenely. To meet others, peacefully, joyously. To face tomorrow, confidently, courageously.” – St. Francis of Assisi
TRANSCRIPT OF THE SHOW
Hi, and welcome to the Made for Greatness podcast. I’m your host Sterling Jaquith. And today on episode 59, I wanna talk about creating a good Catholic family. And this has come up for me as I’m kind of watching December playout. This is coming out in December about a week and a half before Christmas. And the internet is aflutter and the Instagram pictures flow plenty. And I notice that each year there is more and more noise about liturgical living and celebrating all the days. And most of the specialty days involve a lot of food. And so I have been having a lot of conversations with my kids who are asking me, Hey, why do my friends get to eat lots of bread or watch lots of TV or have lots of cookies, and I’m having to tell them, you know, Hey, that’s totally fine.
