    Happy 200 Episodes!!!! What does Among Women mean to me? I don’t know if words– particularly my words, as I’m not a writer– can describe the wonderful blessing that this podcast has been in my life. I very rarely make it through an episode without crying because my heart is so full, especially the prayer. What a privilege to be able to pray with you and all the fellow listeners!! This podcast has consoled me in my lonliness, when I needed some literal soul sisters–women who share in my faith and love of Jesus and Mary. It has also provided many many resources that I never would have found on my own. I truly love the fellowship that we share among women, thank you so much Pat!! I want you to know that I do appreciate the regularly scheduled releases of the podcast and I look forward to downloading each episode on the 10th 20th and 30th of every month. I pray for you and the podcast, and I thank you again, all this is such an incredible blessing in my life!
