Show Notes

Editor's Note:  This is a re-broadcast.  It was originally published in June 2021.

Welcome to The Endow Podcast! This podcast is a forum for women to foster conversations about the intellectual life and intentional community for the cultivation of the feminine genius.

On this episode, Simone Rizkallah, Director of Program Growth, interviews Jen Fulwiler along with Katie Smith, Director of Development on the key papal documents which led to her conversion from atheism and the reality that embracing imperfection is key to building a culture of life.

Jen Fulwiler is a standup comic, bestselling author, and mom of six. Her new podcast, This Is Jen, debuted in the Comedy Top 10 on iTunes. She self-produced her first standup comedy tour — booking theaters across the country with nothing more than a Google search and her personal credit card — and sold out almost every show. Her first book, Something Other than God, a memoir about converting to Catholicism from lifelong atheism, was a finalist in the Goodreads Reader Choice Awards, ranked alongside books by Hillary Clinton and Rob Lowe. Her book One Beautiful Dream was a Wall Street Journal bestseller, hit the Amazon Top 25, and was a #1 bestseller at Barnes and Noble. Her newest title, Your Blue Flame, was featured on the Today Show.

Katie Smith has been with Endow since January of 2019. She has an undergraduate degree in biochemistry from the University of Portland and worked in technology for five years before discerning a call to put her talents at the service of the Catholic Church. In 2011 she received a full scholarship to pursue a Master of Divinity degree from the University of Notre Dame.
