About this Episode

Sister Miriam is a professed religious sister with the Order of the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity, which serves the Church and the World through collaboration between priests, religious, and laity. Her call to religious came through a holy priest who walked with her as college came to an end. She speaks to us about brokenness, healing, and recovery, as she entered AA dealing with her alcoholism. Sr. Miriam's honesty is a game changer, as she has moved past shame and fear and is more concerned with bringing people hope.

TRENT BEATTIE SEATTLE — Church was the last thing on Sharon Heidland’s mind when she entered college in the fall of 1994. Having received a full volleyball scholarship to the University of Nevada-Reno, she was living 800 miles away from home and pursuing her own path toward what she thought would bring happiness. “My goal entering college was to succeed at sports and build skills for a successful career,” she explained. “I wanted to be either a businesswoman or a journalist. Above all, I wanted to do something great with my life, something extraordinary. I thought ultimate happiness would be wealth, prestige, glamour and power.”

In 12-step recovery programs, there’s a saying that “you’re only as sick as your secrets.” That was me. I had so many secrets, and I was so toxic inside.… I knew what was right and what was wrong; I’d been raised well. But because I was so broken, I continued to make choices that kept leading me down a path of hurt and shame.
  • 3 Questions to Detect Sports Idolatry — God didn’t create sports; people did. But people created sports in response to the world God created. Sports are capable of providing spectacular glimpses of truth, beauty, and goodness as athletes tune and discipline their bodies to perform amazing feats. Indeed, I consider sports to be a competitive manifestation of the performing arts. But God’s gifts are always in danger of getting turned into idols. We can so fixate on something good that it subtly morphs into something ultimate. Any time we think we can’t be happy or satisfied without something, we’ve made it a counterfeit god, an object of worship, an idol.
