IP#148 Emily Stimpson – The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide for the Single Years on Inside the Pages

Emily Stimpson is a delight to talk with and her book “The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide for the Single Years: The Nuts and Bolts of StayingSane and Happy While Waiting for Mr. Right” is a great subject to discuss!  With style and class, and a great big portion of honest hopeful heart sharing, Emily crafts a work that is a must for all Catholic women, not just the single girl.

Filled with humor and reflection, as well as practical insight, it is “steeped in the Church’s teachings on the feminine genius, marriage, and theology of the body, The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide dishes with both wit and wisdom on some of the most pressing questions single women face: vocation, dating, sex, finances, work, depression, and more.” Not to missed, and must be passed on to others!

“Emily Stimpson has written a book that manages to be light-hearted about the serious subject of singleness for Catholic women, but is still full of practical, nitty-gritty suggestions for growing through difficulties. Always uplifting, “The Catholic Girls Survival Guide for the Single Years,” offers timeless truths that help women see beyond current circumstances to grasp the bigger picture of life as a beloved daughter of God. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is a single Catholic woman—or anyone who wants to learn how to love single women better. I don’t know of another book that does what this book does for single women—it’s simply outstanding! Kimberly Hahn, Author “Life-Giving Love”

IP#146 Mary Eberstadt – Adam and Eve After the Pill on Inside the Pages

Mary Eberstadt is one of the brightest lights we have voicing the intelligent response to the arguments brought forward by women who advocate the “contraceptive” mentality, especially those which come from women who claim the Catholic mantle.  Her book, “Adam and Eve after the Pill: Paradoxes of the Sexual Revolution” is outstanding! In her incredibly fluent writing style, Mary chronicles the damage done to women, men and children as a result of the “sexual revolution” and the paradoxes of our promiscuous behavior.  She is  wonderful to listen to as she calmly fillets, like an intellectual ninja, the viewpoint of the sexual secular left.  In our conversation, she also discusses the challenges to religious liberty that we face in this country.  A “don’t miss” book and discussion.

IP#113 Kate Wicker – Weightless on Inside the Pages

Kate Wicker is OUTSTANDING and her book “Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body” does so much more than it’s title offers…it reminds us how our faith can help us bring peace into our hearts!!!! I love it!  The blessing of our femininity,  a joy in the gift of the daughter of God we have been created to be, the peace that comes with a prayerful relationship with the Father…these are just  some of the fruits that come from Kate Wicker’s work in “Weightless”.  More than “self-help”, it’s really about letting the saints help, letting your faith help… ultimately, letting God help.  Insights, quotes, guidance, reflections, this book is perfect for individual or group study …check it out!

What a fun and encouraging interview…it was one of those I just didn’t want to end.  Take time to listen, then get a copy of the book for yourself and pass other copies to the women in your life.

There’s a wave of body dissatisfaction sweeping across society. While bookstore shelves are well-stocked with tomes on how to overcome body image problems, very few take a faith-based, much less Catholic, approach to self-healing. Weightless: Making Peace With Your Body speaks not only to those who may have faced an eating disorder, but also to anyone who wants to live an abundant life, unencumbered by our culture’s obsession with thinness, physical beauty, youth, or food.
