A Good & Holy Life
Martha Agnes Gentry: August 23, 1930 – November 28, 2021
Episode 122 was originally released as a special Mother’s Day installment of The Path to Authenticity in 2021. It features a conversation with my then 90-year-old mother, Martha Gentry. I wanted an opportunity to ask her some of the questions I never asked my dad. She tells about when she first met my father, what dating him was like, and their wedding and honeymoon. We also talk about our family history as it relates to alcoholism. I definitely learned some things in this conversation. For those who are new to the podcast, or don’t know my family, the liner notes will help you have a better understanding of our conversation. Enjoy, and be nice. -tg
In this episode, I mentioned episode 15, with Terry Shapiro, and episode 4, with Mimie Langlois. We later discuss episode 79, with John Snyder. Check out my inspiration for this, the episode of Blind Spots:Exploring What We Cannot See, in which Dr. Chantelle Thomas features her mother. If you enjoyed this, you might also like episode 140.
