Episode 33—Our Stories, God's Victory

Heather Khym (far right) with co-hosts Michelle Benzinger and Sr. Miriam James Heidland, SOLT.

As many listeners may know, Abiding Together has been pivotal in my own journey as a Catholic woman and in creating this very podcast. It was in listening back to the series on the feminine genius that lit a fire within me and helped me to realize that my version of Catholic femininity and being me was important. In fact, that's how God desired for it to be!

Heather Khym, who is a co-host on Abiding Together, happens to also live in BC where I'm based. Her name is ubiquitous in our Archdiocese, and she's known for her talks, her musicianship, and her powerful stories. She also speaks to you in such a way that makes you feel noticed. In my mind, Heather is the embodiment of what the feminine genius is!

I was so excited when Heather said yes to coming onto the podcast, and we had a wonderful discussion about her faith journey, her ministry, and what it means to live out the feminine genius in her life. We also talked about Abiding Together and how this amazing podcast came together through a beautiful friendship and giving her 'yes' to God.

"Some things are coincidence, some things just randomly happen in life. But there are some things that clearly, God is moving and he is weaving a story together." — Heather Khym
