We discuss allowing ourselves to experience our emotions fully in the face of disappointments, while always choosing to submit our feelings under the truth of God. We pray that this week you would know how much God delights in your trust!

    The Right to Hope

    In this episode we discuss the virtue of Christian Hope through a discussion on Pope Francis’s homily from the 2020 Easter Vigil, A Right to Hope.

    Loving the Church

    Loving the Church

    In this episode we discuss the mystery and gift of the Church in the midst of scandals, disappointments, heartaches and failures. We discuss the “both and” nature of the Church that delivers the grace of the sacraments and is made up of only sinners. We chat about the family of the Church and our role as women to help reconcile and restore the broken places through transparency and repentance. We pray you would notice the Holy Spirit working a new thing within your heart this week.

Absolutely LOVE this podcast

I absolutely LOVE this podcast and I am so grateful to God that I came across it! I was introduced to Sister Miriam James when she was Matt Fradd’s guest on Pints With Aquinas. “Abiding Together” is amazing! I love hearing all three of these amazing women interact and it has been very healing.

Abiding Together

I saw Sister Miriam recently on my YouTube feed, and was mesmerized. It didn’t occur to me to search for her within podcasts, but heard mention of it in one of her introductions, and immediatly downloaded Abiding Together. These discussions are a gift to the soul. I did not know how very much I needed these new friends and their precious wisdom.
