How do you keep living a life of faith after an impossible-to-imagine tragedy occurs? ✨ Today’s guest, speaker and writer Leticia Ochoa Adams, is no stranger to grief. After her son committed suicide a couple of years ago, she decided to live the rest of her life sharing his story + walking through her journey of sorrow publicly. We talk about how to remain in relationship with Christ after horrible things happen and why “getting over” grief just isn’t a thing. We also dive into what we call Catholic Celebrity Culture—why Leticia’s passionate about exposing the media to different kinds of Catholic women, and why Catholic womanhood isn’t one-size-fits-all. Enjoy!
