Spiritual Exercise

All that recuperating I’ve been doing this year hasn’t been so great for my waistline. So with the beautiful weather today, I knew that I had to just get out and get walking.

Walking by itself, though, is pretty boring. Unfortunately, there’s no one around to be my walking buddy, so I decided that this would be a good opportunity for me to get caught up on the podcasts I keep downloading but don’t always get a chance to listen to. So I grabbed a string bag to hold my cell phone, ID, house key and iPod, as well as a bottle of water, and I cued up a two-week-old edition of Among Women, since I’ve gotten a little behind in listening lately.

Boy, did I luck out. Pat Gohn began the podcast with a discussion about St. Bernadette–how appropriate that I’m listening to her story in May, the month of Mary! And then I got to hear an interview with Laraine Bennett, whose books on temperament are both fascinating and useful. In fact, I want to dive back into them, because I think that a little refresher course will help me understand my kids better. A little awareness of temperament is a really good thing in family relationships.

So now, I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s walk! I wonder what I’ll get to hear next.

Sarah’s on the same page as me–last week she had a guest blogger, the author of The Rosary Workout. Sounds intriguing–especially in May!

  1. I use walking time – particulalry early in the morning – as a time to say a rosary. I have one of those finger rosaries, which makes it easy.I find that beauty of nature helps with the praying.Listening to podcasts? Beyond my technical know how!


  2. This sounds like a great idea! I should go sleuthing for some podcasts as walking buddies. And I can't say enough good things about The Rosary Workout!


  3. I love podcasts, and AW is one of my all-time favies. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed Peggy's post. Have you checked out her book? It's phenomenal (not that I've done much more than READ it, mind you…).
