Denise Bossert – We welcome back Denise to our show. She is a nationally recognized writer, speaker and Catholic convert.
She is the author of “Gifts of the Visitation: Nine Spiritual Encounters with Mary and Elisabeth.” She shares with us about why she wrote the book and the biblical encounters between the Virgin Mary and her cousin Elizabeth, before the births of Jesus and John the Baptist. She uses their story to highlight nine gifts experienced by both women as they awaited the arrival of their sons and to encourage readers to develop these gifts themselves.
Denise talks to us about the nine gifts that emerge; spontaneity, courage, joy, readiness, humility, adventure, hospitality, wonder and awe, and thanksgiving. She helps readers look inside their own hearts to discover what the gifts of the visit between Mary and Elizabeth mean to them and how they can be Christ-bearers to others.
