Among Women 220: St Joseph, the Angels, and Kate Wicker

March 20, 2017

This week’s episode:

“Blessed are They”: The Archangels

“Among Women” Guest: Kate Wicker

In this episode, we depart from our usual path in discussing the stories of women who’ve been saints before us… and we talk51gQuLXDxSL._AC_US218_ about St Joseph — since today is his feast day — plus we discuss the role of the archangels in our “Blessed Are They” segment. I’m also delighted to be talking with Kate Wicker in a lively discussion centered on her new book: Getting Past Perfect: How to find joy and grace in the messiness of motherhood. This is pure encouragement for moms!
