Snippet from the Show
When both genders are working together, that is when we experience the fullness of humanity.


Our guest this week is author Lisa Cotter. She joins me to discuss topics in her new book, Reveal the Gift: Living the Feminine Genius. Lisa shares some of her experiences as a wife and mom and the ways in which our culture gets the idea of female empowerment all wrong. 

We discuss some of the challenges we face as women today including navigating social media and the temptation to compare ourselves with others. Lisa is a joyful voice of encouragement for women from all walks of life!

Megan Madden

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.
