This is our third and final post celebrating the seven years of conversations Among Women!
Previous posts have focused on the many themes that have been the hallmarks of Among Women: the feminine genius and the dignity of women, the lives of women saints, and all out encouragement for the grace-filled living of our Catholic faith –otherwise known as the call to holiness.
We’ve explored the how-to’s of sharing your faith, going to adoration, offering your testimony, reaching out to prodigals, and the process of joining third orders (for lay people) with the Carmelites or the secular Franciscans.
Listeners have added their own wonderful voices on our AW Special Editions like “Among Women 200”, “Listeners talk about their Lenten Practices“, “What I Love About Mary”, “The Bible and You”, “AW 100”, “Prayer”, “JOY!”and “What We Love About Pope Francis”.
Oh, and the music! Who can forget going “behind the scenes” to the studio of those singing nuns — the Daughters of St Paul? Plus I got to go back to my deejay roots as we enjoyed the musical talents of recording artists Sara Hart and Kitty Cleveland!
Last fall I launched a shorter AW podcast — the ESPRESSO SHOT! It was an idea that came up as I was meeting with a few listeners in Florida last summer. The Espresso Shot even broke with our precedent and had a guy show up on Among Women — a priest — as a guest! This new format has really added a certain breadth to the show and allows me to podcast more “on the fly” when I’m traveling. So I’m grateful for the good feedback you’ve given me on them!
How can I say thank you for listening?
In the only ways I know how — I’m praying my rosaries in thanksgiving to Momma Mary for her graceful patronage and inspiration, and asking her to intercede for your needs. Don’t worry, she knows who you are.
Plus I’m going to give away three copies of my book, Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious, to three women at random who leave me a comment on this post now through April 8th at 11:59pm. (US residents only, please. Winners will be contact via email.) After all, “BBB” was borne from my many conversations and prayers with women over the years.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
