Angéle Alonzo


Angéle is a cradle catholic originally from the beautiful Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago. In 2015, at the age of 19, she left her country and travelled to Ireland to study medicine, she's been there ever since! Angéle is a medical doctor in a small town in the South of Ireland. 

In 2020, she founded an online ministry for young catholic single women called Happy Single Catholic.com, in response to the heavy cross of singleness she and many women carry.

She says, "I joined Spoken Women, because as a creative catholic woman, I believe that we have the power to change the world around us through our ordinary acts done with extraordinary love."

Jennifer Scheuermann


While living out her vocations of marriage, motherhood, and health care provider, Jen can often be found on the sidelines of a ball game, searching for shade while cheering for her sons. She firmly believes any household chore can be enjoyable with a podcast playing, but as a recovering perfectionist, she tries not to do them too often. 

After finding herself on an Ignatian retreat that she hadn't realized would be silent, she encountered Jesus personally, and her world has not been the same since. An early riser, she sits with Jesus while it’s still dark and blogs about the things He reveals to her at earlyAMcoffeewithJesus.com. She considers her Instagram squares her personal stones of remembrance, and you can follow her daily faith journey at @earlyAMcoffeewithJesus.
