Episode 38 — Sharing Jesus with a Smile


Emily Potusek (far left) with her family on a trip to the Vatican.

In this episode, Emily and I talked about:

  • How Emily got into nursing

  • Emily's faith journey

  • What it's like to work on the front lines during the time of COVID-19

  • The power of a smile and acts of service

  • Continuing to follow the advice and directives of our health directors and trusting that they know what they're doing!

I've known Emily Potusek for a few years now, and our families both go to the same parish. Through this, I've had the opportunity to encounter Emily and her smile on a regular basis. It was a real privilege to be able to talk to Emily a few months ago about her faith and work as a nurse, especially during this time of COVID-19. Together, we talk about Emily's personal faith journey, working as a nurse, and how she's been able to share her faith with others through her work.


As the situation with COVID-19 changes, I ask that you continue to pray for nurses like Emily who are hard at work to take care of us and help us stay healthy!

"I smile because I know God loves me and I know He put me here for a reason, and I like my job because I know I'm serving a purpose." — Emily Potusek
