Welcome to Our Community
more of what women are
We bring together Catholic women to cultivate our minds and build community in order to restore authentic femininity, the home and heart of society.
Why the Feminine Project?
Our world is hurting.
A quick look at Instagram or, worse yet, the news, shows us that people are confused and angry.
We are meant for so much more!
As women, we have a unique ability to help heal the hurts of our society.
My name is Ann Burns and I started the Feminine Project to bring women together to learn, grow, and build a community based on our God-given gifts.
I hope you join me on this journey of healing! Please reach out with your thoughts and I’ll get right back to you.
“The world doesn’t need what women have; it needs what women ARE.”
We can all rally behind a resounding speech on embracing our feminine genius, but do these words hold weight? Or are we just celebrating a vague idea. Maybe it means nothing more than having female anatomy. Or maybe it has something to do with the color pink and pretty bows. Maybe it’s about careers. Or maybe it’s about motherhood. “Femininity looks different on everybody!” I remember one young woman explaining, “It’s just you expressing your uniqueness.”
This mentality might sound good, but it’s incredibly confusing because it adopts the world’s notion of truth, which is rather anti-truth or relativism. This is dangerous because it denies the fact that our words hold weight. They carry meaning. We have a duty to communicate the truth, which means we need to choose the right words.
An understanding of the female body leads one to the truth that women are designed to be mothers. Through the body a spiritual mystery is clearly hinted at.
Our bodily blueprint reveals our maternal and self-giving calling, but that reality is inconvenient.
Are we that afraid of who we are as women and what we are capable of?
Are we afraid to discover that our bodies might actually point to a higher truth?
I am reminded of how a relationship with another person forces you to face yourself – dating and marriage, particularly. What is revealed isn’t always pretty. And here, once again, a person is shaking me out of my complacency, shattering my illusions about who I am and how this is all supposed to work. My baby is here, inside me, growing and changing and inviting me to change and grow.
I absolutely love The Feminine Project! Helps me see how beautiful and important femininity is.
The Feminine Project is the gateway to a community where true feminity is encouraged, not disparaged. In today’s world the truly feminine characteristics that have allowed women to effectively mold societies for centuries are thrown out as archaic, pathetic, or the result of the oppressive patriarchy. The Feminine Project embodies the antidote – embracing our true feminine gifts, encouraging us to be who God made us to be so we can set the world ablaze.
The Feminine Project is so needed for all women, especially now. When the beauty and the role of the feminine nature are being attacked and redefined, this group serves as a beacon to the true nature of women. A project started as a small idea to help empower women to their true and beautiful selves, it has grown to serve so many women and uplift them. The resources provided here are a gift for women of all walks to be encouraged and to find true friendship amongst each other.
