Among Women Podcast 211: Kicking Little Sins

In this new episode of Among Women, I welcome author and editor Elizabeth Scalia back to Among Women and we talk about that uncomfortable Screen Shot 2016-06-02 at 1.14.10 AMsubject: sin. But hey, that’s real.  We have to confront the fact that even little sins can have a negative cumulative effect. Join us for a thorough discussion of the themes of Scalia’s new book: Little Sins Mean a Lot: Kicking our Bad Habits before They Kick Us.

Plus we’ll unpack saintly advice on why Mary is like our saint gladiator — she helps us fight sin when we turn to her!

All that and more on episode 211 of Among Women.

What’s this book about?

Here’s a summary from Amazon:

What if you could have been a witness to the events of the last days of Jesus’ life–walking with him as he entered Jerusalem, observing his crucifixion, and embracing him on Easter? What would you have thought and done? How would you have been changed?

Walk in Her Sandals, edited by popular Catholic author and speaker Kelly M. Wahlquist, takes you deeper into your relationship with Jesus by helping you relate to him in a profoundly intimate way. Looking at six universal gifts of women through the eyes of women in the gospels, the book guides you on a prayerful and creative journey through the days of Holy Week, Easter, and Pentecost.

As you imagine the experience of the women who met Jesus, you will discover how each of them expressed one of six, distinctive, feminine gifts identified in the writings of St. John Paul II. Through the eyes of an imagined woman who watched Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, you will understand how she conveyed the gift of receptivity. Through the hands of Veronica, who reached out to wipe the face of Jesus, you will discover how sensitivity is present and can grow in your own life. These gifts, along with generosity, prayer, maternity, and the Holy Spirit, come to life through the vivid portrayal of women who walked with Jesus. Their imagined stories are complemented by the real accounts of contemporary women who share their own stories of receiving and cultivating these gifts.

Love this group of women writers! The book is for pre-order here!
