  •  Happy, Healthy, Holy: Building an Authentic Catholic Marriage

It takes years of training for a doctor, priest, or lawyer to be trained, but there is very little formation to prepare us for the real challenges of married life.  The Catechism of Connection is an experience that shows couples how to apply the Church’s teaching on marriage to their own lives in a deep personal way.  Bringing together the best teaching from the Church, psychology, and life experiences, The Catechism of Connection can be done in the form of a half-day, full-day, or weekly class.  

  • The Fully Alive Parent: How to Raise and Nurture a Child in Mind, Body, and Spirit

More books have been published on parenting in the past 25 years than in the preceding 550 years since the invention of the printing press. Sorting among all the parenting gurus and philosophies sometimes seems like it takes a Ph.D.! However, raising a happy and healthy child boils down to a handful of principles that we all know, instinctively.  Father of five boys and clinical psychologist Dr. Jim Langley helps to make these explicit for you so that your child can be nourished in heart, mind, and soul.

  •  Mind Games: Understanding (and Parenting) the Adolescent Brain

In this presentation, Dr. Langley explains how teens discover themselves, what the purpose of their emotional intensity is and what to expect as they develop into young adults in a fun, relatable way. Using a brain-based approach, he discusses how to apply a method to the madness of the adolescent years between 12 and 25-years-old and that this period can be capitalized on to help adolescents grow into healthy young adults.

  •  Killing Love: Confronting Pornography in Family and Society

Internet porn is the drug of our day, and it has such devastating consequences on our relationships, our brain, and our community. Killing Love addresses porn’s addictive nature and its impact on both men and women. This presentation will educate you on this grave threat to our culture as well as our families, and will give you practical tools for responding to it.

  • Fostering Emotional Intelligence

This presentation focuses on helping our children gain emotional intelligence which is the ability to control and express emotions appropriately. The world puts great emphasis on IQ, but research finds extreme benefits for raising our children to be emotionally healthy, too. In this presentation we learn more about the benefits of emotion-coached children, a five-step process for doing so, and strategies that can be helpful to implement these steps.

Quo Vadis?

This presentation is best done as a retreat, and is an interactive discussion and reflection upon one’s personal call to holiness.  The goal of “Quo Vadis?” is to make the beautiful and lofty ideals of Christian living taught by the Church personalized for the participants to help them have a stronger sense of meaning and mission in their own lives. As Christians we are told to “be perfect as your heavenly father is perfect.” (Mt 5:48) In this talk we explore the paradoxical call surrender our entire will to God, and yet “run so as to win.” (1Cor 9:25) It is said that thoughts create actions, actions create habits, and habits create character.  “Quo Vadis?” will help you answer some of the important questions:  What are you creating with your own thoughts and actions?  Where are you going in your life?  Where do you want to go?  How do you get there?  We will discuss the idea of Christian self-mastery, and you will be given effective tools from scripture, the saints, and virtue psychology to help you become as happy, healthy, and holy as God calls you to be.
