Among Women 228: Be Imitators of God and Walk in Love (Eph. 5:1-2)

Among Women 228: Be Imitators of God and Walk in Love (Eph. 5:1-2)

In this latest edition of Among Women, I offer a departure from our usual format and I offer a recording of a talk I gave recently based on Ephesian 5: 1-2 and portions of my book, All In. 

This is our text: “Be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us…” Eph 5: 1-2.

(Apologies that the audio is not to our usual quality, but hopefully, you might find something worthy in this.)

Listen to the podcast here, or find episode 228 on iTunes.

Just wrapping up the summer and enjoying some time off — but I’m getting prepped to bring you more new episodes of Among Women in September. Check back September 10!

2 Among Women podcasts in 24 hours! #Fatima100! Mary’s Way! Plus Another Espresso Shot!

2 Among Women podcasts in 24 hours! #Fatima100! Mary’s Way! Plus Another Espresso Shot!

So here’s something rare: Two podcasts from me in the same 24-hour period. I would have written, “the same day” but it seems the second one posted just after midnight. Oh, the life of podcasting … is never predictable.

First up : here’s the third and final installment to my read-aloud narrations for ALL IN: Why belonging to the Catholic Church Matters. I hope you’ll enjoy it. On Among Women Espresso Shot #16 I’m talking about the very subject that seems to have been the springboard for the book… how so many of us suffer from a curious diagnosis: the mud-splashed bride syndrome. (Have no fear, I also share the cure!)

Next up: In this latest episode of Among Women we look at Mary in two ways. First, we explore themes related to the 100th anniversary of Our Lady’s appearance in 1917 to three peasant children in Fatima, Portugal. Second, we explore a mother’s life with the help and assistance of Mary — especially during times of great sufferings and trials. My guest is Judy Landrieu Klein, who shares her story with us, as found in her latest book, Mary’s Way: The Power of Entrusting Your Child to God.

Be sure to check out the show notes for this episode of Among Women — lots of great resources for #Fatima100, and more!
