I have been a contributor to the Catholic Mom website for a few years. One of the features on the site that I contribute to is a daily Gospel reflection. Some time ago I was asked to be a part of a team of contributors for a book, The Catholic Mom’s Prayer Companion, published by Ave Maria Press. And now, the book is here! In my house and more importantly, on sale now. It was nice to see my name in print, along with quite a few authors who are well-known in the Catholic blogging and publishing world.
The book features a quote, a reflection, a prayer and a question to ponder for every day and vary in topic from Prayer, Mary, and Family Traditions to Discerning God’s plan for your life. My parents and aunt and uncle were visiting this past weekend so of course I showed them the book, directing them to the reflection I wrote about my great-grandparents. My mom didn’t have her glasses so my aunt read it aloud; they cried. I’m fairly certain you wouldn’t cry, since you didn’t know my great-grandparents but it is nice to know it touched my family.
Take a look at this great new book and pick up a copy for yourself and the other moms in your life. It’s available on Amazon (hard copy and Kindle) and at Ave Maria Press. If you live in my neighborhood, the book will be available at the St. Peter gift shop, at the Magnificat breakfast in November or you can contact me for a copy.
