Among Women 139: Conversation, Conversion, and the Comics

Thursday July 19, 2012

This week’s episode:

“Blessed are They”: St Joan Delanoue

“Among Women” Guest: Ellen Austin

This week I talk about the power of conversations that can lead to conversion, as in the life of St. Joan Delanoue, a French businesswoman-turned-founder-of a religious order. Joining me in conversation today is Ellen Toole Austin. Ellen is a wife, mother, catechist, and creator of a comic strip online, also known as a web-strip, who shares not only shares her faith, but also has a remarkable knack for seeing life through the eyes of children through her heroine of “Gracieland”.
