Loss and the Power of the Rosary ft. Shannon Wendt


Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt “rosary dread”—that feeling of “noooot again” that happens when someone pulls out their beads. 😂🤦🏿‍♀️ The truth is, I’ve felt that way more than a few times, and so has today’s podcast guest, Shannon Wendt. Shannon is the founder of Chews Life, a shop for rosaries and rosary bracelets. We chat all about how her multiple miscarriages shook her faith, how clinging to Mary gave her hope in dark times, and how she realized she needed to niche down in her business even though it made her nervous to focus on religious products. Shannon’s story is incredibly inspiring and it was an honor to chat with her!
