This week’s episode:
“Blessed are They”: St. Catherine of Siena
“Among Women” Guest: Emily Stimpson
This week, I recap my hiatus from AW with details about the Catholic New Media Conference, and seeing my book get some pre-release attention at the Catholic Markeing Network.*
Then, we look at the lives of two single women who are separated by a few centuries. In the “Blessed Are They” segment, we meet St. Catherine of Siena, a Dominican tertiary, in her words of The Dialogue, and get a look inside the heart of a saint. In our “Among Women” segment we meet Emily Stimpson, author of The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide for the Single Years: The Nuts and Bolds of Staying Sane and Happy While Waiting for Mr. Right. Our conversation looks inside a few of the chapters of this wise and witty book.
