Stephanie Emmons is a Catholic author whose devotion to Mother Teresa led her to India in 1996. There, she volunteered with the poor and prayed with the saint herself. She is mom to Lois and Catherine, but she’s also been a street outreach worker, a wedding singer, a student of theology, a mental health peer supporter, a spiritual director and a naively fearless traveler. She does her best writing between appointments, at busy coffee houses and at home under the watchful eye of Daisy, the family’s rescue dog from Antigua. Stephanie has a soft spot for the women mystics whose lives were marked by suffering yet somehow kept the faith and show the rest of us the variety of paths to sainthood.
