Sr. Miriam James Heidland, S.O.L.T. – Catholic Revert
Raised by German Catholics in Texas, Sr. Miriam James Heidland was given a foundation of faith, but doesn’t remember having any kind of personal relationship with Jesus growing up. For her, sports were the most important thing in her life. As she entered college on a volleyball scholarship, she began to fall deep into alcoholism, and her life started to spiral out of control. It was the witness of a holy priest that initially helped to awaken faith in her, and start her down a path to religious life with the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity.
