We are Catholic Speakers, Authors, Evangelists, Bloggers, and goofballs for Christ. We love having fun, keeping it natural and relatable around here. With ten years of marriage under our belt and the experience of parenting five crazy kids, we’ve got plenty of stories to share.

Hi, We're the angels

This past November, I [Bobby] partnered with Tony Vasinda and The Nazarite Challenge, a group of men that yearly focus on deeper prayer and creating community.

The 5-part podcast they recorded focused on the five chapters of our book Pray, Decide, and Don’t Worry and takes you through the steps of discernment with additional insights. Jackie joined in for Episode 3 and on Episode 4 we were joined by Dr. Andrew Swafford, a professor of theology at Benedictine College and husband to Sarah Swafford.

The podcast episodes are all listed below as well as on the Bearded Virtue website. I hope you enjoy! Please pass along to any person who might be in the midst of a major life change and could use some tips to navigate the waters of discernment.

Episode 1: Seek

Episode 2: Search & Discern

Episode 3: Silence with Jackie

Episode 4: Sort with Dr. Swafford

Episode 5: Step Out

Tony is doing great work for the Church and you can find him over at for all your beard balm needs,, or @TonyVasinda on most social platforms.

“The beard signifies the courageous; the beard distinguishes the grown men, the earnest, the active, the vigorous. So that when we describe such, we say, he is a bearded man.”

–St. Augustine (Exposition on Psalm 133, 6)
