One of the most prevalent concerns in women who may want to leave their jobs to become full-time wives & mothers is, 'but how is it possible to live on one income nowadays'? We could give anecdotal evidence to prove such a thing is not only possible but *enjoyable*, and we do in spades, but our guest Travis Haage, a financial planner, provides hard evidence proving that yes it is completely possible and (*shock*) you can enjoy your life! He also discusses how to save for retirement with one income and the cons of two-income families.
His wife, Tasha-Rose Haage, joined us to give the practical benefits & challenges to this lifestyle, and the tough but necessary questions each family must ask themselves if they want to succeed.
We came away from this discussion encouraged that indeed, no matter what your husband's income, living on it--healthily, happily and peacefully--is truly possible, despite what the culture will tell you.
(Note: Please forgive the wonky Skype format, I (Theresa) am an idiot and didn't set up the screen properly! Grr!)
Tasha-Rose has her own YouTube channel called Radical Mothering (https://t.co/ZgYXV7pPEZ?amp=1) and website (https://radical-mothering.com/), where she talks about mothering as God intended.

In episode 10, Beth & Theresa discuss the obesity epidemic in the West, how our self-image is affected in today's society and how we can overcome self-image issues by eating healthy, yes, but most importantly by finding our worth & purpose in Our Lord. Listen to the end where we discuss suggested recipes, it's a fun discussion!

On Ep. 009, Beth and Theresa's husbands, both military veterans, join us for an in-depth discussion about women in the military. We discuss their experience with women in the military, the U.S. military's sexual harassment policy, whether St. Joan of Arc (and others) should be invoked as an example for military women, whether or not women can be 'called' to be in the military (vocations, etc.) and what the practical implications are women thinking to join the military. They give us their experiences and opinions, and shed some much-needed light on what it is like 'on the ground' for women (and men) in the military.

On Ep. 008, Beth and Theresa discuss the most contentious issue (apparently) in entire universe: modesty (and specifically, modesty at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass).

On Ep. 006, Beth and Theresa discuss 1st wave feminism, the history (including the infamous Seneca Falls Convention), the people and our misconceptions about the intentions of the movement. Was the 1st wave really just about giving women the right to vote? Is there any similarity between the 1st and 3rd waves of feminism? Why does all this matter?
