Sonja Corbitt is a vital Catholic voice – a best-selling author, speaker, and broadcaster – who produces high-impact, uplifting multimedia Bible studies.
A Carolina native who was raised as a Southern Baptist, Corbitt converted to Catholicism and served as director of religious education at St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Gallatin, Tennessee, and as executive director of Risen Radio in Lebanon, Tennessee.
Sonja is the riveting weekly host of the Bible Study Evangelista Show on CatholicTV and radio. She is a regular guest on EWTN; writes for The Great Adventure Bible Study Blog; Catholic Digest; Catechist Magazine; and Magnificat magazine; and speaks around the world.
Sonja is in formation as a Third Order Carmelite, a columnist at The Great Adventure Bible Study blog, a regular contributor to Magnificat, and a best-selling author who also wrote for the Gallatin News Examiner and Oremus, the Westminster Cathedral magazine. She lives in Tennessee with her husband, Bob, with whom she home schools two sons.
In this episode, Sonja talks about her latest book, How to Pray Like Mary, and how Mary led her to write this beautifully insightful book, soaked in Scripture and other Catholic documents. She gives us a prayer method called LOVE the Word, a modern-take of Lectio Divina, that models Mary’s way of praying. Sonja also gives intimate details about how her conversion journey, while holding Mary’s hand, has helped her overcome deep-seated wounds and impulses while lighting the fire of evangelization in her heart.
