Among Women 248: Catholic Working Mothers

Among Women 248: Catholic Working Mothers

One of the most popular topics on the Among Women podcast has been that of working mothers. In this latest episode, I welcome longtime listener and now author of The Catholic Working Mothers’ Guide to Life — Joanna Wahlund — to tackle this important subject.

This episode of Among Women examines the challenges of mothers who work either by choice or necessity. While each woman’s situation is unique, we look at how important connections to faith and family are for the mothering vocation.

Joanna Wahlund and I discuss the foundations of her book (at right), plus women saints who might be good patrons for working mothers, as well as tips for growing in prayer, discernment, and finding sisters in Christ.

And, in a departure from our usual fare, based on the news of the week, I’m dedicating our Blessed Our They segment to talk about the upcoming beatification of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen.

Listen now to Among Women.

Among Women 247: Becoming Women of the Word

Among Women 247: Becoming Women of the Word

In this new episode of Among Women, we ponder the call based on the title of Sarah Christmyer’s new book Becoming Women of the Word. It’s a wonderful conversation filled with the story of Rahab’s faith, as found in the book of Joshua. This is the kind of faith that calls us to trust in God amidst the storms of life.

Speaking of hardships, in our Blessed Are They segment, you’ll learn about the life and faith of one of the Japanese martyrs, St. Magdalene of Nagasaki.

Listen to Among Women 247.
