Apr 30, 2020

Our deepest identity does not lie in our gender, our sexual orientation, our wounds. Our identity lies in Christ.” - Heather King

Heather King has always described herself as “an ex-lawyer, a former barfly, and a Catholic convert.” Her previous life as a functioning alcoholic led her to numerous illicit relationships that resulted in three abortions and a long-term, but failed, marriage. She is raw and open about her past. On this edition of Restoring the Soul, Michael spends a good part of an hour speaking with returning guest, Heather King, about her brand new book, Ravished: Notes on Womanhood, that explores parts of her former life and comes to the conclusion that our deepest identity does not lie in our gender, our sexual orientation, our wounds. Our identity lies in Christ. Ravished is also her love letter to the Church for bringing her to full flower as a woman and as a human being.

As you will hear in their conversation, Ravished is a book that is as challenging for men as it is for women.

In this podcast, we hope you will discover:

  • Love doesn’t confine itself to one gender.
  • The difference between victim hood and spiritual poverty.
  • What it looks like for a woman to be a real warrior and a real feminist and to be a follower of Christ.
