This episode of Among Women examines the challenges of mothers who work either by choice or necessity. While each woman’s situation is unique, we look at how important connections to faith and family are for the mothering vocation. JoAnna Wahlund, a longtime listener to Among Women, and now author of The Catholic Working Mothers’ Guide to Life is my guest. Together we discuss the foundations of the book, plus women saints who might be good patrons for working mothers, as well as tips for growing in prayer, discernment, and finding sisters in Christ. And, in a departure from our usual fare, based on the news of the week, I’m dedicating our Blessed Our They segment to talk about the beatification of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen.
