Have you ever picked up a book on the lives of the saints and thought . . . well, shoot. I don’t know how I’m going to do this holiness thing. I’m not like Saint Jerome, or, maybe you think you’re a little too much like Saint Jerome with his grumpy, curmudgeon ways. But what if I told you that there are literally hundreds of saints I want to introduce you - saints who share some of your struggles, your joys, but most importantly, saints who want to encourage YOU to become the saint God is calling YOU to be.
In today’s episode, I’m sitting down with Meg Hunter-Kilmer. If you know Meg, you know she is a huge fan of the Olympics, and it was a true honor for her to pause the Olympics to spend some time with me on this show talking about the saints.
In this episode, Meg and I are talking about her new book, “Saints Around the World,” a beautiful book that introduces you to over a hundred saints from sixty different countries. It’s illustrated by Meg’s friend Lindsey Sanders, and trust me, you’re going to want to get yourself a copy of this book by the time Meg and I are done chatting.
If you’ve been looking for some encouragement on your journey to holiness and needing a reminder that God wants to make you a saint, and the world needs a saint exactly like you, sister, this letter is for you.
Topics we talked about in this episode:
How Meg’s new book on the saints came to be, and what sets it apart from every other saint book you’ve read so far
The saints you never have heard of that are featured in “Saints Around the World”
Meg’s advice for finding your own unique path to sainthood
