Writing the fairy tale of your life

How St. Joan of Arc brought enchantment to my life.


Here’s something a little different! I found a file developed a year ago whereby I made an attempt to draft a model explaining the life-altering impact St. Joan of Arc made in my life through the heart of St. Thérèse. This impact, stemming from the “divine glance” (Thérèse’s term) I received by grace many years back, was nothing less than a journey with St. Joan of Arc to a kingdom I perceived in the distance of my horizon of spiritual meaning. My writings and podcast attempt to communicate this phenomenon; however, the presentation above might be a good place to start for anyone wanting to know in clearer, less opaque language how this transpired.

Keep in mind that this is no more than a rough draft of my preliminary thoughts on the matter. Still, it might be helpful and inspire you to walk with St. Joan and St. Thérèse yourself. I hope you enjoy it. I’ll have to contemplate where this goes next!

I am also the co-host of the Heroic Hearts podcast with Amy Chase. Heroic Hearts is devoted to a spiritual adventure with St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux! Join us on the journey!
