Loved As I Am: In this episode, our conversation is with Sister Miriam James Heidland, SOLT – popular speaker and religious sister of the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity. Sister Miriam is known for her powerful witness and profound wisdom. She can be found speaking internationally at conferences and retreats, working with the John Paul II Healing Center, and co-hosting the popular podcast Abiding Together. We discuss how God delights in bringing us to wholeness, how shame often moves us to believe the lies that we are worthless and unlovable, and how God desires to begin a lifelong process of healing and restoration with us so we can live life fully and in freedom. Finally, we will look at how common religious phrases like “God loves you just the way you are” and “God meets you where you’re at” should be properly understood.
