On the Road to Perfection
Walking in the Catholic Faith
Holy Owned and Operated Co-Founders Beth and Kristofer Cowles discuss topics of Catholic Faith as they take their regular walk around the neighborhood. It’s a conversation and exploration without confusing theology or apologetics and instead the kind of conversation you have when walking. On The Road To Perfection is a journey of Faith as we all explore and grow in our Catholic Faith together, amidst the sounds of birds, cars, lawnmowers, the local day care. and the neighbors and dogs we meet along the way. Unscripted and off-the-cuff, what you hear is what you get when you walk with us in the Catholic Faith.
