Welcome to a special rebroadcast of "If You Knew Me". Today we have a treat—a rerun of one of our favorite episodes, featuring Claudette Powell, a.k.a. Sister Monica Clare.
Originally aired in March 2022, this episode combines narration with Sister Monica's own voice.
Sister Monica Clare, an Episcopal nun from Mendham, New Jersey, embraced her authentic self later in life and gained recognition from Oprah. With a TikTok following of nearly 180,000, she has inspired many. Claudette Powell's journey is pretty intriguing. Once married and working at Paramount Pictures, she felt drawn to the nun's life. In the episode "Nicey Nicey" we unravel Claudette's unusual path, combining her voice with intermittent narration.
Tune in for Claudette's inspiring story, and mark your calendars for our upcoming season, starting in September.
We'll feature remarkable first-person stories, beginning with Tonje—a courageous woman who unexpectedly lost her eyesight after a successful career as a fashion model and photographer.
