    A Letter to the Woman Who Wants to Start Praying With (and for!) Her Spouse

    A Letter to the Woman Who Wants to Start Praying With (and for!) Her Spouse

    In today’s episode, I’m sitting down with Dr. Sarah Bartel and we’re talking about Cana Feast, the marriage ministry she founded with husband, Nathan. She’s giving some really practical, nitty-gritty ways that they’ve found make a difference in couple’s marriages - from how to get over the awkwardness of praying together to making time for each other in seasons of change and prioritizing your marriage when schedules are tight.

    I know you’re listening to this episode the day AFTER Valentine’s day, but I wanted to share a conversation about some lifelong, daily practices to strengthen your marriage and your prayer life EVERY day of the year, not just on Valentine’s day

    If you’re a married woman and you want to learn HOW to pray with your spouse, or if you’re not married but feel the Lord calling you to that vocation and you want to know how to prepare your heart for that season, sister, this letter is for you.

    A Letter to the Woman Rediscovering the Catholic Church

    A Letter to the Woman Rediscovering the Catholic Church

    In today’s episode, I’m sitting down with Mallory Smyth and we’re talking about her journey back to Catholicism, but also some of the big, elephant in the room topics that come up when you share about your Catholic faith with people who have left the Catholic Church - or honestly, could even be topics you struggle with yourself when it comes to living in today’s world as a Catholic woman - I know I’ve wrestled with many of the topics Mallory writes about and that her and I cover in today’s episode.

    If you’re wrestling with those big questions about the Church, if you’re struggling to feel at home in the Church, if you have one foot out the door, or if you’ve left the faith, sister, this letter is for you!

    A Letter to the Woman Working in a Secular Environment

    A Letter to the Woman Working in a Secular Environment

    In today’s episode, I’m sitting down with Veronica Marrinan and we’re talking about the origins of Litany,  an ethical, sustainable, and Catholic women's clothing line that she founded. But we’re also talking about what it’s like to live in New York City in the heart of the fashion industry as a Catholic woman, and how Veronica witnesses to truth through beauty in conversations with those who don’t share her Catholic faith.

    So often we let lies like “I don’t know enough,” “I’m too busy,” “I don’t have all the answers,” and “I don’t have it all together,” hold us back from sharing about our faith and our relationship with Christ and His Church. If you’re wondering how to evangelize and honor the dignity of those you work with or your friends who aren’t Catholic, sister, this letter is for you!

    A Letter to the Woman Who Wants to Pray More in 2021

    A Letter to the Woman Who Wants to Pray More in 2021

    In today’s episode, I’m sitting down with Emily Wilson and we’re talking all about her brand new weekly devotional for women, how to find time for prayer in busy seasons of life, and her top piece of advice for all of us as we close out 2020 and embark on all the adventures that 2021 has in store.

    In a season where you are probably hearing about everyone else’s new years resolutions and maybe have thought about making some of your own, Emily and I are sharing the importance of small steps and creating healthy habits for your spiritual life that will last longer than the first few days of January. Because if you’re like me, you can think of many many failed new year’s resolutions that you’ve made in the past.

    I’ve long admired Emily’s heart for women and she’s a guest I’ve hoped to have on the show for years - but it’s taken that long to coordinate between books being written and babies being born for both of us, so it was a total joy and honor to sit down with her and learn more of her story.

    If you’re looking to this new year with hope, anticipation, and maybe a little bit of nervousness, sister, this letter is for you.

    Topics we talked about in this episode:


    Emily’s brand new weekly devotional and how she finds time for prayer as a mom of two little boys

    Why prayer should be a priority

    Why we’re so hard on ourselves as women and how we can recognize the truth that God sings over our lives

    How to give thanks for the friends you have

    The advice Emily would give women looking ahead to 2021

    A Letter to the Woman Reclaiming the Title of Homemaker

    A Letter to the Woman Reclaiming the Title of Homemaker

    In today’s episode, I’m sitting down with Dr. Carrie Gress and we’re talking not only about the beauty (and theology!) of home, but also the beauty of homemaking - a concept that might sound a little outdated - don’t worry, we’re going to get into that, too.

    There’s a line from the song “Oh Holy Night” that keeps coming to mind - “A weary world rejoices” - and if your year has been anything like mine, it has indeed been a Christmas season I’ve arrived at weary, but also rejoicing.

    If you’re desiring to be intentional with the home that you create not only this Christmas season but all year round, sister, this letter is for you!

    Topics we talked about in this episode:

    How we can reclaim the word “homemaker”

    Patrick Lenocioni’s three common elements to evaluate job happiness and what the answers mean for homemakers

    Why there needs to be a re-connection between homes and homemaking

    Carrie’s advice for single women when it comes to mothering and creating a home

    Encouragement for the mundane moments of motherhood

    A Letter to the Woman Overwhelmed by Her Christmas to-Do List

    A Letter to the Woman Overwhelmed by Her Christmas to-Do List

    In today’s episode, Emily Tate and I are have a conversation about being intentional with our Advent, our gift giving, and our traditions in this season.

    Many of us are blessed with memories of just really perfect gifts that were given to us. This past summer, one of my friends gave me a beautiful birthday gift that included a book on gardening, a book on growing in joy, and book of cello music - plus a gift card to my favorite local coffee shop. I felt so seen and loved by her - she’d seen all of my interests and loves and combined them perfectly. You may also have memories around gifts you’ve given - maybe to a best friend, a sibling, a spouse - something that brought you so much joy to put together for them and that you loved seeing them unwrap.

    In a season where it’s easy to get caught up in the to-do list aspect of gift giving, or the commercialized gift giving we find ourselves in, this conversation with Emily was so refreshing and such a fun way to start this Advent season.

    If you are staring at a list of people who you want to give a gift to this Christmas and wondering how to honor those friendships and relationships well with an intentional gift, sister, this letter is for you.

    Topics we talked about in this episode:


    What inspired Emily to found Pillar and Pearl

    The joy that Emily finds in collaborating with Catholic artisans and other Catholic women who curate boxes for Pillar and Pearl

    Emily’s tips for intentional gift giving and knowing the temperaments of those you love

    Creating your own family traditions

    The joy of remembering intentional gifts that were given to you

Beautiful Insights

Chloe does a beautiful job of interviewing various women at different stages of their life. I love the way she gives them adequate space to develop their ideas, thoughts and experiences. She's a uniquely professional yet warm forum for communicating the feminine genius.
