Throwback Tuesday: At Home in the Church with Jessica Ptomey

Danielle Bean

This week, we are doing a throwback episode! This episode is from when I had Jessica Ptomey, author of Home in the Church: Living an Embodied Catholic Faith, on the podcast. Jessica and I talked about her conversion and her journey to a more embodied Christian faith inside the Catholic Church. Jessica also recommends another book during our conversation: Abandonment to Divine Providence.

Jessica shares the miraculous story of her son’s healing and we grapple with the idea that God hears our prayers but does not always answer them as we wish he would. What can we learn about the nature of God, his unfathomable love, and our place in the universe from unanswered prayers?

Snippet from the Show
The Catholic faith is not a distant intellectual idea, it is an embodied faith that is lived through the physical realities created by prayer and the sacraments.


My new book, Whisper: Finding God in the Everyday, is available to order!
