Today on the Just One Small Thing Podcast, I am talking with Diana from Luck of the Irish Mom, and we are digging into the issue of discipline. Diana is a runner and ran her first marathon shortly before meeting her husband. She shares with us how all of the skills of discipline she learned while training for and running a marathon transferred to the discipline required in waiting for a good Catholic husband, living out a holy Catholic marriage, maintaining a prayer life, and surviving all the twists and turns of motherhood.
As you might have guessed from the title of her blog, Diana is not only a marathon runner. She is also the mother of a 2 year old and 1 year old. In fact, her second child was born a week before her first child turned one year old. So, she officially has Irish twins and she share a lot of her adventures with these two little ones on her blog.
If you would like to read more of Diana's story of meeting her husband as well as other Catholic love stories, I encourage you to check out Smitten, A Story of Catholic Love Stories. Sterling Jaquith, one of my favorite Catholic bloggers and podcasters put this collection of stories together to really inspire us to fight for beautiful, holy marriages. It is a great read for those waiting to find their spouse, as well as those already married. I highly recommend it.
And, like I said in the podcast, I really believe that one of the most important ways that we can be disciplined in our faith is to get out of bed each morning and get our prayer time in. It is a big struggle for me too, but we need to do this! We create habits and build discipline one day at a time, so let's start today!
