    In today’s episode, I’m sitting down with Emily Jaminent and we’re talking about why now is the perfect time to revisit a classic Catholic devotion in the Sacred Heart.

    You may remember a picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus hanging in your grandparents or parents' home, but what does devotion to the Sacred Heart really mean for our daily lives as Catholic women? Not only are we talking about some amazing promises Christ made to accompany devotion to The Sacred Heart, Emily and I even dive into our favorite depictions of the Sacred Heart and why art is important in your home.

    Topics we talked about in this episode:


    Emily’s grandfather and how he provided images of the Sacred Heart for Mother Teresa

    Why 2020 is the perfect year to discover a devotion to the Sacred Heart

    What it means to enthrone the Sacred Heart in your home and in your life

    A Letter to the Woman Toppling the Idols in Her Life

    A Letter to the Woman Toppling the Idols in Her Life

    In today’s episode I’m sitting down with Kim Zember and we’re talking about same-sex attraction, but really this is a conversation about how we can examine our hearts and our lives and make sure that Christ is the the King of our entire life and topple any idols that are standing in the way on our journey back to His heart and the journey to becoming the women he’s created us to be.

    We also talk about Kim’s work in Ethiopia, and how serving the women and children there has led to deeper healing in her own life. This is a beautiful conversation, and one I cannot wait to share with you.

    If you’ve ever felt alone in your attraction towards women as a woman, or are looking for resources and advice on how to lovingly support the women in your life who experience same sex attraction, sister, this letter is for you.

    Topics we talked about in this episode:


    What inspired Kim to write and publish her story in book form

    The role that missionary work played in Kim’s story of healing and finding rest

    What encouraged you to keep seeking the truth instead of taking the advice of trusted people in her life who told her her romantic relationships with women were good

    How to say “no” to things we put before God in our lives as Catholic women

    Kim’s advice for loving people you know who experience same-sex attraction

    What Kim would share with someone who is listening who experiences same sex attraction herself

    I’ve spent a lot of time researching what Saint Pope John Paul II said and wrote about women and it wasn’t until I read Melissa’s new book that I even heard of the phrase “sentinels of the invisible.” I loved this conversation about the feminine genius in our daily life and the stories of women throughout the life and history of the Catholic Church.

    If you’ve ever wondered how the Catholic Church has championed the dignity of women and you want to know more about what the feminine genius means for you today, sister, this letter is for you.
