  • Pope Francis has proclaimed 2021 as the year of St. Joseph, and upon his announcement he released a beautiful apostolic letter titled Patris Corde, or With a Father's heart, that aims to increase our love for this great saint, to encourage us to implore his intercession and to imitate his virtues and his zeal. In today's episode, we will discuss this letter, and get to the heart of St. Joseph's fatherly role in our lives .

    I am very excited to welcome Nathan Crankfield to the podcast, as we discuss how we can become more like St. Joseph and follow his example in the new year. Last year St. Joseph provided for both Nathan and I in bold ways, and we are excited to introduce you to him!

  • We're going back to the basics and setting the foundation for the podcast. With so many things vying for your attention, you deserve to know that your time listening to the SHE BELIEVED Podcast is well worth it. As I mentioned in my very first episode ever, my hope for the podcast is that through our conversations you are inspired and equipped to live more freely into the woman God has created you to be.

    You can expect to leave today's conversation having the answers to two very important questions: 1. How do I know who God created me to be? 2. How do I live out who God created me to be?

  • Does Instagram and Tik Tok rule your life? Or do you allow God the time and space to tell you who you are and who you were created to be? While many of us (me included) would hate to admit it, we often allow others (especially on social media) to determine how we see ourselves. While the influence of people around us is important, we have to focus on community over competition. Our differences are meant to bring us together, not tear us apart through comparison. If you feel the pressure to look like you know where you're going and what you're doing, but feel exhausted from placing your worth in your accomplishments, this episode is for you! Stacey Sumereau, host of the Called and Caffeinated podcast, joins me today to remind us that we are beautiful, beloved, found and wanted.

  • Have you ever felt convicted about something, whether it be a relationship, college decision, or job, only to be completely caught off guard when you find out it's not what God intended for you? Instead of questioning every decision you've ever made, rest assured that God knows exactly what we need to bring us closest to His heart. Today's conversation is inspired by an article from The Young Catholic Woman titled, "When Your One Actually Wasn't The One", written by Sarah Kozak, today's guest! This episode is for anyone who needs to be reminded that God's words are never empty promises — He never lets anything go to waste.

  • We have a choice. We can either allow God to tell us who we are, or we can allow the devil to tell us who we are not. To finish out the Beauty Bootcamp series, I'm going to share how my own insecurities inspired this month of discovering our inherent beauty and worth. None of us are strangers to insecurities, but it's important that we learn how to face them with courage. In today's episode, I'll walk you through 5 simple habits that I have found effective in helping me live more freely as the woman God created me to be. 1. Acknowledge and then name your insecurities. 2. Practice gratitude daily. 3. Take time to develop your gifts. 4. Appreciate the good in others. 5. Spend time in prayer every day.

  • We will always be battling the idea that we are only as good as our looks. But anytime we base our self-worth on our appearance, we are going to struggle with confidence. No beauty standard will ever change the fact that each and every one of us has been created as an unrepeatable child of God. Joining me today to remind us of these truths and more is Lilly Fallon. Lilly is going to debunk your misconceptions of what a feminine Christian woman has to look like, and remind you that your personal style should be as unique as your soul. While your confidence can change with every passing day, your worth never changes.

  • Welcome to the 4-week virtual Beauty Bootcamp! Instead of workouts and makeovers, this is a bootcamp for the heart and soul. Throughout the month of May, we'll be learning together how to build confidence, overcome insecurities and live out our femininity in a way that highlights our inherent beauty and worth. Ringing in the first week of Beauty Bootcamp is Nicole M. Caruso. Nicole's Catholic faith has given her the understanding of her dignity and value that comes from God, and she has made it her mission to inspire women to invest in their self-worth. Today, Nicole and I talk everything from our favorite Spring pieces to her #worthyofwearing movement. It's time we learn how to invest in ourselves and enhance the natural beauty we have been given.

  • Today, I'm asking all the questions you've been too nervous to ask regarding chastity and Christian dating. While every chastity talk tells you, "save sex for marriage", they don't always answer the more difficult questions like, how do you fight sexual temptation? What is emotional chastity? And of course the biggest question, how far is too far? Today's guest is Culture Project missionary, Emily Harpole. Emily is a 2019 college grad from Benedictine College, and she has spent the past year presenting to middle and high school students about the importance of chastity. While you may think chastity is just not having sex, its true definition is aligning our sexual desires to whatever our state of life is. This episode is packed full of practical ways to say yes to authentic love, and messages of hope for those suffering from the wounds of sexual sin.

  • Who out there feels like their story is too simple or too ordinary to share with others? Do you even know what your story is or the smallest step in beginning to share it? We often feel like in order to encourage and inspire others we have to have had a major transformation or overcome a tragedy. But what if I told you that your story is important, and you have the opportunity to build connection and achieve success, simply by sharing more of yourself. Would you believe me? Today I am joined by photographer and podcast host, Courtney Garrett, as we discuss how to embrace your story, vulnerably share it with others, and make strides in your personal and professional life by putting yourself out there. We all have a story to share. It's time for you to share yours.
