We are thrilled to welcome back Karen Edmisten as our first return guest on Fountains of Carrots! We’ve been fans of Karen’s writing for years and when we got our hands on her new book, You Can Share the Faith: Reaching Out One Person at a Time, we knew we needed to have her back on the show to talk about evangelization.
Karen Edmisten is a Catholic convert from atheism and a homeschooling mom of three girls. She’s a freelance writer, a frequent guest on Catholic radio. and the author of several books.
In this episode we chatted with Karen about sharing Christ through our relationships. As Catholics we can be afraid to come off as proselytizing and sometimes don’t speak up and share our faith when the time is right. Karen offered stories from her conversion (including when people tried to evangelize the wrong way) and talked about the people that authentically shared their Catholic faith with her. We also discussed complicated situations within families, such as spouses who don’t share the same faith or children who have left their faith. Karen has such wisdom to share about patient, prayerful hope for these difficult situations and offering love and respect in all our relationships.
We loved chatting with Karen again and we think this episode is going to be a great inspiration and encouragement to you. It’s a great episode, so grab some coffee and listen in!
