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 journal entries inspired primarily by the Catholic faith. It is a pilgrim writer’s reflections and images on authentic Catholic womanhood. Content is casually focused on marriage and family life, holistic women’s health, tabletop philosophy, and anything else that might be interesting to coffee-chugging thrift fashionistas, imperfect domestic divas, literature lovers, working women, and saints in-the-making; essentially, women who are expressive feminine geniuses. Our gifts our many. Our conversations are interesting. Our friendships are profound.

Women are uniquely prepared to engage the world with their diverse gifts. By encouraging a new conversation that nurtures wisdom and one that promotes solidarity, women can be a true friend to one another.
