During her freshman year of college, a religious awakening initiated a slow journey back to the church for Sharon Heidland. Upon graduation, she took the name Sr. Miriam James, joining the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity (SOLT), a missionary community that serves global areas of deepest apostolic need. Sr. Miriam has served in New Mexico, Rome, and North Dakota and is presently at St. Alphonsus Parish in Seattle where she serves as the Director of Novices. She also co-hosts the show “Sisters in Christ” which can be heard on Sacred Heart Radio, 1050 AM and is a former volleyball coach at Archbishop Murphy High School.
“I started listening to Catholic Answers Live when I was struck down by an illness that basically left me bedridden. This left me questioning my faith and mortality, and my son introduced the Catholic Answers Live podcast to me. Listening to all the guests explain and defend the Catholic Faith has been instrumental. Has Catholic Answers made a difference in my life? It has become part of my life!”

"I protest that I do not intend to assert or determine anything that has not been manifestly determined by Sacred Scripture or by the authority of the Church. Wherefore I submit all I have said or shall say to the correction of Holy Mother Church and of all learned men."
