My new book, Whisper: Finding God in the Everyday, is available to order! We are hosting a mini book club, right here in the podcast each week. I hope you will join us!
This week’s guest is Christine Wohar, author of Finding Frassati and following His Path to Holiness, all about the young saint Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. Do you know his life story? Christine Wohar shares insights from her life and her book about ways thatBlessed Pier Giorgio Frassati is indeed a “saint for our times.”
Snippet from the Show
Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati shows us that the ordinariness of life is where holiness is possible.
Do you have a unique relationship with a saint? Or have you ever felt like one of God’s saints has “chosen you” and popped up in your life for a special reason? I share a little bit about Don Dilindo Ruotolo, author of the Surrender Novena we discussed a couple of weeks ago. This novena helps us to focus on the ultimate goodness and superiority of God’s plans over our plans all the time and in all things.
At the end of today’s show, I respond to a question from Kelsie, a mom who asks for advice about how to get started as a freelance writer.
I also share with you how you can get access to the free playlist I put together for Whisper: Finding God in the Everyday. It’s a collection of songs that I find inspiring on the themes I cover in the book, and I hope you will enjoy listening and praying along with it too. You can get the playlist when you text the word WHISPER to 33-777
At the end of today’s show, we continue our mini book club for Whisper: Finding God in the Everyday. This week we focus on Chapter 7, all about meeting God in prayer.

Megan Madden is a homeschooling mother with a passion for writing and speaking on authentic femininity and virtuous womanhood. In 2017, she began graduate studies in marriage and family at the International Theological Institute in Austria. After moving to Kraków, Poland to work with university students, Megan more personally continued her research on the complementarity of man and woman, particularly on the question of what it means to be a woman. She delved into the study of renowned Catholic writers on women such as St. Edith Stein, Gertrude von le Fort, Alice von Hildebrand, St. John Paul II, and St. Teresa of Avila.
The results were the development of Megan’s online ministry A Mother’s Lace, as well as speaking opportunities and her book with Ascension: Mary, Teach Me to Be Your Daughter.
Megan lives outside of Oxford, England with her husband, who is a lecturer in theology, and their five children.
