Recipe for Joy (and a chance to win it)

Recipe for Joy: A Stepmom’s Story of Finding Faith, Following Love, and Feeding a Family looked interesting, but I’ll be honest: I almost didn’t read it. There are a number of reasons why, but none of them are as huge as the feeling of “Wow, I am SO GLAD I read that!” that I felt late [Read More…]

The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins

The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins My rating: 5 of 5 stars I’ve never been that interested in this book or anything by Wilkie Collins for that matter. Collins had that stigma (for me) of having written “classics” and “the first detective novel.” Which just killed any interest I’d ever have had because classics and “first [Read More…]

Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious

I can tell you already that one of the books on my “Best of 2013” list is the newly released brilliance in B by Pat Gohn, Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious: Celebrating the Gift of Catholic Womanhood. For one thing, there’s the title.  Pat has a streak of sassy New England, and she also has a swash of [Read More…]

“Inhale as a believer, exhale as an atheist”

I am an admitted book stalker of Julie Davis and became interested in Save Send Delete by Danusha Goska as she was posting about it at Goodreads. Her 5 star review of the book sealed the deal for me as I know she does not max out stars lightly. When I first read the summary [Read More…]

Encounter: A Middle School Bible Study

My first exposure to Mark Hart was when our youth ministry and director of religious education (who I’ll just call “Kelly” for short) started talking about him a few years ago. I first saw Mark Hart in action last year during our summer Confirmation Boot Camp (which I co-teach), when Kelly used one of his [Read More…]

A Garden of Visible Prayer

Two summers ago, I bought two copies of A Garden of Visible Prayer: Creating a Personal Sacred Space One Step at a Time, by Margaret Rose Realy. One copy was for myself. The other copy was for my mother-in-law. It went with the handmade rosary Margaret crafted (I wish she sold them online!), and it was a [Read More…]

Review: Pope Francis by Matthew Bunson

Earlier this week Pope Francis written by Matthew Bunson and published by Our Sunday Visitor was released. As I had written when reviewing Francis: Pope of a New World is that you expect some flaws and lack of depth for a book that quickly comes to market. In many ways this book gets passed some [Read More…]
