Emily Stimpson Chapman – Former nominal Catholic, Evangelical

July 18, 2017 2 Comments

Emily Stimpson’s Catholic experience as a young girl didn’t leave her with many compelling reasons to stay, so when she encountered Evangelical Christians who were on fire for their faith, she was drawn to their witness. ¬†She went on to work for a think tank, where one of her coworkers, a convert to Catholicism, began to challenge her understanding of certain passages of Scripture. ¬†Around the same time, Emily had been struggling with an eating disorder, and encountered Pope St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, which helped redeem her relationship with food, and even gave her a way to better understand the meaning of the Eucharist.
