Among Women 247: Becoming Women of the Word

Oct. 31, 2019

This week’s episode:

“Blessed are They”: St. Magdalene of Nagasaki

“Among Women” Guest: Sarah Christmyer

In this episode we ponder the call based on the title of Sarah Christmyer’s new book Becoming Women of the Word. It’s a wonderful conversation filled with the story of Rahab’s faith, as found in the book of Joshua. This is the kind of faith that calls us to trust in God amidst the storms of life. Speaking of hardships, in our Blessed Are They segment,  you’ll learn about the life and faith of one of the Japanese martyrs, St. Magdalene of Nagasaki.
