One of the keys to the new evangelization is the sharing of our stories, the recalling and retelling of how we came to know Jesus in a personal way — and how our lives changed because of it. This encountering Jesus, and becoming members of His Body, the Church, is the overarching theme in the seven podcasts listed below, drawn from the Among Women archives. I’m thankful for the seven women who gave witness to their faith in Christ in these recordings, so that others might be strengthened and encouraged to do the same. Your testimony to God’s love in your life is important. Think about ways you might share your story with others, as you listen to these stories.
