I am praying for Kim, a Catholic mother in Texas who has decided to start a Catholic mother's group after reading two of my books! God bless you Kim! She will conduct her first meeting tomorrow (Friday) and will do a study on my book, The Heart of Motherhood: Finding Holiness in the Catholic Home. Please say a prayer for Kim and her group as they embark on their study of the vocation of Catholic motherhood and meet together as sisters in Christ!
A copy of Kim's review that appears at Barnes & Noble.Com appears below.

I am a mother of 3 children ages 3 and under and have read THE HEART OF MOTHERHOOD and it has truly changed my life! The author's outlook on the vocation of motherhood could only have come from the Holy Spirit....Donna Marie Cooper Oboyle's writings are awe inspiring. I encourage all mothers to read this book. It is easy reading and one you can't put down. The writings of this book are ones you remember in the middle of the night when you are up with sick children and want to break down and cry or the days you don't know how you are going to make it through the day....the voice of this book sticks with you and truly helps you become a better mother and helps you to live a holy life at home. IT is a reminder of the true vocation of motherhood that has been lost in today's society. I am starting a mother's group at my church based on this book because the message is so powerful that all mothers need to be touched, encouraged and inspired by the words of this book, especially in today's world!
Thank you, Kim for your very kind words. Most especially, thank you for your courage to go forward to gather women together to work together to understand the beauty and holiness hidden in an ordinary yet extraordinary vocation! I'm praying for you and your group!
God bless and hugs,
