Among Women 227: The Life of Prayer and Good Works

Among Women 227: The Life of Prayer and Good Works

This latest episode of Among Women delves into the every day life of a believer… that it must be grounded in both the  interior life — the life of prayer — and the call to do good works. In our saint segment, I explain the faith story of St. Tabitha of Joppa found in the Acts of the Apostles, chapter 9. Tabitha was a disciple described by her good works — specifically supporting widows. Plus in our conversation segment, I have a lively discussion with author Julie Davis about praying every day and growing in friendship with Jesus. Together we explore themes from her new book, Seeking Jesus in Every Day Life. (Not gonna lie, I loved reading aloud an excerpt with her.)

The Happy Catholic concludes the Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious Blog Tour

The Happy Catholic concludes the Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious Blog Tour

And so it comes down to this… today we’ve met the goal of skimming ten themes in my new book, Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious: Celebrating the Gift of Catholic Womanhood, over ten days… Ten Bodacious Basics, Ten Minutes at a Time. I’ve had a blast recording the audio tour segments, and I’m very happy that there are free books in the offering at each of the blogs courtesy of my publisher, Ave Maria Press.

Here’s a recap of what this is all about:

Today the final episode of the audio tour is hosted over at The Happy Catholic, one of my favorite blog haunts over the years, created by the talented and delightful author, Julie Davis.* I’m honored that she’s doing the wrap up post today that will talk about the need for a new feminism that incorporates the Gospel of Life as it honors the dignity and gifts of women. In the end, it is we women, ourselves, who must make this our mission as we serve the Lord in whatever vocation we are called in.

If you’d like to go back and hear some of the other chapters and enter your name is a few more drawings for the free book, you’ll find the complete list here.
