In eighth grade I wrote a paper titled “Don’t Touch That Dial!” The assignment was to select anÂ occupation of interest,Â researchÂ it, interviewÂ an expert in the field, and then present it all in a paper. I chose radio broadcasting … I must have been a talk radio geek back then, too. I was so proud of the final paper and my hard-earned “A”, that along with a few other items from my school days, it sill occupies a place in my keepsake box.Â Mrs. Hutton, the best English teacher a mom could select for her children, shared the following advice in her notes, “This would be a fun occupation. I hope you go ahead to pursue it!”

Des Moines listeners, tune your radio dial toÂ 1150 AM, 88.5 FM, or 94.5 FM. Not-so-local folks can listen via Internet radio atÂ IowaCatholicRadio.com.Â Click hereÂ to open the player and stream online.Â Julie and I would be honored to have your listenership.
I am grateful to Julie for believing in me, for inviting me to join this party with her, and now encouraging me in my daily walk as a Catholic woman. Thank you! It seems the two of us are already finishing one another’s thoughtsÂ and sentences. Another gentle confirmation the Holy Spirit is calling us to this task together.Â And to Mike Peters, executiveÂ director of the stationÂ … WOW! I’m honored to be learning and shadowing from one of the best in the biz.Â What a breath of fresh air he has brought to the station. The Catholic scene here in central Iowa is buzzing.
And now, a plea to my local friends. Are you a college student with Monday mornings free? An empty-nester who wants to practice grandma (or grandpa!) skills? An at-home mom looking to pick up a few dollars?Â I’m looking for childcare on Monday mornings from 8:00 – 11:30 for my 10-month-old son Jude while I work on this project.Â Jude’s a thoughtful, introverted boy. A little shy to warm-up, but give him some space and he’ll come around. He goes down for naps very well and loves to eat! Sounds like me, eh?Â Occasionally his big sis Lucy (4 years) will beÂ hangingÂ around, too. Ideally, the care would be provided for in my home, but I am willing to explore other options. Interested or know one who may be? PleaseÂ drop me a message here.
Finally, please whisper a little prayer for all involved? Oh, and of course, tune in and tell a friend that Catholic Women Now is now on the air! Thank you.
