Among Women — 2013 in review

Top 5 “Most Downloaded” Episodes of 2013:

 159 Faith-filled Women at Work (With Mary Wallace, PhD)

Mary Wallace, whose dissertation looked at faith in the workplace, shares her findings and her faith. I also share some of Edith Stein’s writings before she entered the convent. We know her today at St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross.

161 Catholic Pediatricians Make a Difference (With Kathleen Berchelmann, MD)

I also chat about one of my favorite modern-day saints, St Gianna Molla, who, as it happens, was a pediatrician besides her vocation as wife and mother. And it leads into an animated discussion about some of the hot topics in pediatrics – especially in the life of teen girls — with Dr Kathleen Berchelmann.

160 Mary’s Astonishing Motherhood (With graphic designer Katherine Robinson Coleman who designed the cover of my book, Blessed, Beautiful, & Bodacious)

Katherine shares her hopes and struggles as a mother to an autistic young adult, and I share about the relationship of St Joseph and the Blessed Mother – and talk about Mary’s astonishing motherhood—being found with Child, conceived by the Holy Spirit!

158 Greeting Our New Pope plus meet Theologian Mom (With Angela Franks, PhD).

In this episode I reflect on the early days of Pope Francis’ pontificate and his love for Mary – by exploring his visit to the Basilica of St Mary Major in Rome, immediately following his election. I also have an enlightening conversation with moral theologian, Dr. Angela Franks of the Theological Institute of the New Evangelization.

155 “Woman, you are a Gift!” – A Look at our Feminine Genius (With writer Rebecca Ryskind Teti)

I couldn’t ask for a better topic to help launch my book, Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious, than to converse with the ever-thoughtful Rebecca Ryskind Teti – writer and wife and mother.
