- Joseph and I haven't had any children after we lost Marion. You can read about that journey here - An Empty Tomb, A Full Manger

- Amy Thomas blogs over at Passionate Purpose! Read her blog to learn more about her journey as a Catholic woman. 

- If you've lost a baby to miscarriage, I want to tell you about this resource - "Mommy to a Little Saint", which is a Facebook group. There you'll find women going through the same emotions you're going through. It's a Catholic infant and miscarriage loss support group that has been an incredible resource in my grieving process. 

A Letter to the Woman Who Wants to Read the Bible

 
 

You can find out about all of Sonja's books on the Bible over at her website

I first encountered Sonja through a book we mention quite a bit on this episode - Ignite! Read the Bible Like Never Before. I highly recommend picking up a copy today. 

Sonja's conversion story is beautiful - she also shared it on The Journey Home over at EWTN. You can watch her episode here

Was this the first time you've heard about Lectio Divina? Father Benedict once wrote, "I would like in particular to recall and recommend the ancient tradition of Lectio Divina: the diligent reading of Sacred Scripture accompanied by prayer brings about that intimate dialogue in which the person reading hears God who is speaking, and in praying, responds to him with trusting openness of heart. If it is effectively promoted, this practice will bring to the Church - I am convinced of it - a new spiritual springtime". You can learn more about the practice of Lectio Divina here

Sonja's current study is about healing the father wound. Want to sign up and learn more about the healing plan God has in your life? Check it out here

Sonja created a prayer journal called 'Love the Word'. You can find more about it (and get a copy for Advent!) here

Sonja's study on the Magnificat, word by word, can be found here. You can check out the first study here
