Interview with Aaron Sims

One of the best ways to spend a summer day or night is at the old ballpark. We love the crack of the bat, the smell of hot dogs, and the enthusiastic banter of the public address announcer. Did you ever wonder what it would be like to have that job, watching and talking about baseball all summer long? There’s a lot more to it than meets the eye (or ears, in this case), as we found out from Aaron Sims, the voice of two Wisconsin-based minor league franchises.

Grace Before Meals: Interview with Fr. Leo Patalinghug

According to its website, Grace Before Meals is centered on one fundamental concept: the simple act of creating and sharing a meal can strengthen all kinds of relationships. Founded by Fr. Leo Patalinghug in 2003, Grace Before Meals has grown from a simple idea to a worldwide movement, producing a book, blog and even a pilot for a TV show endorsed by PBS.

Research shows that having frequent family dinners can reduce the susceptibility of teens to risks like teen pregnancy, smoking, drug use and depression. And these benefits don’t just apply to traditional families or people with kids. Stronger families foster stronger communities, and that’s the goal we’re striving for–one meal at a time.

We sat down with Fr. Leo to learn more about where his love for cooking came from and what inspired him to start Grace Before Meals. In this candid and humorous interview, Fr. Leo also shares why it’s so important to have regular family dinners and gives advice to people who are having a hard time fitting it into an increasingly busy schedule. [Read more…]
