Sonja Corbitt, The Bible Study Evangelista and creator of the LOVE the Word Bible study method and journal is a Catholic Scripture teacher with a story teller’s gift – a Southern belle with a warrior’s heart and a poet’s pen. A best-selling author, her weekly CatholicTV and radio show and other Bible study resources are bites of spinach that taste like cake – to help you “love and lift all you’ve been given.” Sonja’s work resonates deeply with the female heart and she joins me on The Dignity of Women to unpack everything from letting God heal the “father wound” to resolving anxiety and fear in the Word of God. 

Sonja Corbitt

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.

She is the riveting weekly host of the Bible Study Evangelista Show on CatholicTV and radio. Corbitt 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.

LOVE The Word

 Pope Francis called Mary the “mother of listening,” because she didn’t just hear the word – in our case read, also – she understood how to interpret it in light of her own relationships, circumstances, and habits. Pope Benedict XVI called her the “model of prayer,” and said her unique holiness was the fruit of her way of pondering relationships and circumstances in her heart with God.

LOVE the Word is lectio divina without the Latin. Modeled on the Annunciation, the LOVE the Word® method invites Our Lady to guide each of us in her own personal prayer practice: L – listen, O – observe, V – verbalize, E – entrust. We learn how to LOVE the Word like Mary, from Mary. She teaches us to interpret the word we hear and read through the landscape of our lives.
