Gus is joined in the Conversion Corner with Dr. Margaret Chisholm, author of the book "From Survive to Thrive: Living Your Best Life with Mental Illness." Dr. Chisholm is a psychiatrist at Johns Hopkins University and she shares her journey to the faith, which started out in the Catholic faith but grew up in a family who didn't practice. When she did begin to explore faith again, she church shopped and shares her circuitous journey back to Catholicism. She also talks about her book, written from first-hand perspective as mental illness runs in her family. In fact, she lost a brother and a cousin to suicide. She talks about the varying causes of mental illness and the key elements needed in living a full life with mental illness.
Also, in honor of National Marriage Week, Gus reads and reflects more on the Catholic teaching on marriage from the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Afterwards, Gus talks about the average age at which people get married, which, over the last 30 years or so, has steadily increased. Gus was 20 when he got married to Michelle and he invites listeners to call in and share the age they were when they got married.
