Claire Paglia is back on the podcast to help us explore wonder especially pertaining to spiritual formation.  We talk about how adults can aid or stifle wonder in children and dive into the how wonder aids the exploration of the Kingdom of God parables in the atrium.

She holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a master’s degree in education with a concentration in Montessori from Loyola University, Maryland. She worked for a year as a course assistant for the primary training center. In 2012, she received her Level I formation and has been a catechist at her church in varying capacities since then.
