For ALL Catholic women! Coming this fall! 


Book description from the publisher: In this heartfelt and sincere volume, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle shows why she is so beloved by her readers, viewers, and listeners. Using stories and experiences from her own life she shows that being a faith-filled Catholic woman does not mean one is perfect. It means that in the midst of parenting difficulties, marital problems, economic hardships, sickness—or whatever challenge life may bring—one finds strength in Christ and in the wisdom and community of the Church. Beginning with a woman’s sense of identity and vocation, Cooper O’Boyle reflects on the presence of Christ in every aspect of a woman’s life—as the source of her dignity, her strength, and her joy. Drawing from scripture, the treasury of Catholic spirituality, and her own favorite prayers and devotions, Cooper O’Boyle guides her readers to become women of prayer, women of compassion and strength in relationships, and women of heart for those in need.

 In a warm and conversational tone she highlights how the sacraments, the virtues, prayer, Mary and the saints, the works of mercy, and various devotions and practices all offer women grace and guidance for their lives. Original prayers and discussion points for groups likewise contribute to making this an invaluable resource. I'll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
