If you haven’t already signed up, you can register for the W.I.N.E. Seasonal Meditations (based on the book), a free daily reminder to pause during the day to prepare your heart for Advent. Just click on this link to register. And if you want to purchase the book, you can find it at FranciscanMedia.org or at Amazon.com.
Finally, if you want to try my recipe for Rose Sunday Chocolate Pound Cake (your family will thank you), you can find that here. Enjoy!
Today at 5:00 EST I’ll be talking with podcaster, blogger, and Catholic radio personality Bill Donaghy at “The Heart of Things” (800 A.M. “In His Sign Network”) Catch it on podcast — by clicking here or by clicking on Catholic International Radio. PLEASE NOTE: The link for CIR is not functional today, the 22nd, but should be up tomorrow and you can download the program at that time.
Speaking of capturing those family moments, Bryan Murdoch has posted this week’s Catholic Carnival … dedicated to his father, who died fifteen years ago. Go check it out!
Today over at “Connecting Moms,” you’ll find a familiar face in the “Featured Moms” channel. I was flattered … and delighted … when Sandy (one of the co-creators of CM and author of “Momisodes”) asked to interview me about Raising Up Mommy. They also posted a review here.
During the interview, her questions about the writing process got me to thinking about how our lives are very much like a book … so many chapters, so little time. The challenge …. and the secret … is learning to live in the present chapter. Right?
Anyway … if you’re not already familiar with the Connecting Moms network, why not check it out?
