When I received the email with the subject line, “CNN new original series ‘Finding Jesus’ blends science and archeology to offer fascinating insights into well-known biblical relics,” I assumed CNN was the acronym for the Christian News Network (or something like that) squeezed between EWTN and TBN on the basic cable package.

With its title Moms’ Night Out, one might think this movie is just for the girls. To that I say, in my best Lee Corso ESPN College Game Day voice, “Not so fast!” But don’t take my word for it; hear it from the director and co-writer yourself in the video here. I am honored to share my interview with filmmaker Jon Erwin about his new movie, Moms’ Night Out, in theaters now. Last summer I had the opportunity to spend a day on the movie set. Now I’m thrilled to help promote the film. And a note to the guys … really, this interview is probably more for you than the gals in our audience. Jon and I even sneak in some football talk. Enjoy the interview and head out soon to see the movie!
We proudly welcome the sweet and talented Diana von Glahn to our Soup & Stories series. Diana is the writer and host of the television series The Faithful Traveler, a program that explores Catholic places of pilgrimage around the world. EWTN recently broadcast The Faithful Traveler in the Holy Land, a six-episode series that has received rave reviews (we’re fans, too!). And get this, The Faithful Traveler crew is returning to the Holy Land in May during Pope Francis’ travels there, and Diana and crew will film a new program called Preparing for the Pope. What a well-earned and deserving opportunity!
In today’s Soup & Stories post, Diana shares her family’s recipe for albondigas, a Mexican soup with hearty chunks of vegetables and small rice-filled meatballs. We’re preparing this recipe for our Sunday meal tomorrow, and our tummies are already growling for a bowl just looking at those photos. Muy bueno!

(For you non-smartphone users, Instagram is a mobile app that allows users to share pictures in a fun and creative way.) And can you imagine my surprise when I woke up … [Read more…]
