Abstract
This doctoral project listens to women's stories of God, reflects on these stories from the epistemological model developed in Women's Ways of Knowing, and considers some of the implications for pastoral ministry in the Roman Catholic Church. This thesis maintains that women meet God in the ordinary experiences of daily living and that these encounters are often overlooked, ignored, or diminished. Fifty-eight memories of God from childhood through adulthood are recorded in the women's own voices. They are stories of God whose strong, persistent, passionate voice is heard throughout the ages.
