About this Episode

What advice do you have to those expecting their first child? What should I be thinking about when choosing my child's name? Is forgiveness as depicted in the movie "The Shack?" really possible?

Ask Christopher West is a weekly podcast in which Theology of the Body Institute Director Christopher West and his beloved wife Wendy share their humor and wisdom, answering questions about marriage, relationships, life, and the Catholic faith, all in light of John Paul II’s beautiful teachings on the Theology of the Body.

Q1: After two long years of infertility and having one miscarriage, we finally conceived our second child. What lights or wisdom can you share with a first-time mom about motherhood and praying through pregnancy? Also, do you have any thoughts about the importance of choosing a child’s name?

Q2: I know that Christopher loves movies. What does he think about the healing path shown in the movie “The Shack”? Is it really possible to forgive someone that kidnaps, rapes, and kills your daughter?
