With our new radio show The Visitation Project set to launch on May 3rd, I thought it might be fun for everyone to get a chance to meet the crew behind this exciting venture. There are four of us if we include our sound guru Keith, and we can never forget Keith, so I’ll be introducing (or re-introducing) all of us leading up to our launch date. If you have any questions I haven’t asked, please add them in the combox, or tweet them to us @TheVisitProject, and we’ll answer them for you.
Next up is the author of A Knotted Life, the beauteous
1. Who are you?
Bonnie Engstrom. I’m a cradle Catholic from the Midwest. I am very happily married and I have five great kiddos. If anyone has heard of me before it’s either because I host the Sheenazing Blogger Awards at my blog, A Knotted Life, each year or because my son’s alleged miraculous healing through the intercession of Venerable Fulton J. Sheen was submitted to the Vatican for Sheen’s beatification.
2. Why did you decide to get involved with The Visitation Project?
I decided to get involved with The Visitation Project because I felt like God wanted me to say “yes” to the invitation. I was really nervous, though – afraid of failing, afraid you and Heather would regret your decision to invite me, afraid of the unknown. I’m so glad I said, “yes” though and I’m really grateful to be doing this.
3. What has been your favorite part so far?
I think my favorite part was the second day of recording. We had gotten all our nerves out the day before and we just hit our stride. There was a moment on that second day when I remember thinking, “We’re actually really good together! We can do this and we can do this well!”
We want to really get to know you, so here’s the important stuff:

Right now it’s Riptide by Vance Joy.
5. Which book do you read over and over and never tire of?
I don’t know if I really do that. There’s so many books I want to read for the first time.
6. Who’s your favorite character in that book and why? Now, see what you’ve done?
I really love Elinor from Sense and Sensibility.
7. Which saint is your go-to guy/girl in an emergency? Explain.
