It is thus my hope, dear sisters, that you will reflect carefully on what it means to speak of the “genius of women”, not only in order to be able to see in this phrase a specific part of God’s plan which needs to be accepted and appreciated, but also in order to let this genius be more fully expressed in the life of society as a whole, as well as in the life of the Church. — (Letter of Pope John Paul II to Women)

Light of Life Women offers random musings and content on the Catholic faith, marriage and family life. Also, holistic women’s health, recipes, and anything else that might be interesting to average moms–thrift fashionistas, imperfect domestic divas, working professionals, saints in-the-making, and all-around feminine geniuses.

Women are uniquely prepared to engage the world with their gifts, St. John Paul II wrote. By encouraging a new conversation, nurturing wisdom, and promoting solidarity, women can be a true friend to one another.
