“Among Women” Guests: Lisa Hendey and Sarah Reinhard
Need a prayer companion for your motherhood vocation? CatholicMom.com has got you covered! Not only is CatholicMom.com a great source of inspiration and community for mothers, but its also a tour de force when it comes to book publishing, thanks to the ongoing work of CM founder and Catholic author, Lisa Hendey. This episode brings together Lisa Hendey and author-editor Sarah Reinhard together to discuss their latest collaboration with a cast of thousands, The Catholic Moms’ Prayer Companion: A book of daily reflections.
I’m happy to have been a contributor to this book and give it my highest endorsement. Here’s some notes about it from the CatholicMom.com website:
Whether you are a new or seasoned mom working in or outside of your home, this inspiring collection of reflections for every day of the year will help you
- stay in touch with the seasons of the Church year;
- remember Mary’s loving presence on her feast days;
- keep company with both new and familiar saints;
- see the spiritual meaning of secular holidays; and
- make you smile with occasions such as Houseplant Appreciation Day and National Popcorn Day.
Each day begins with a brief quotation from scripture, saints, recent popes, or important spiritual writers. A personal reflection—written by contributors including Danielle Bean, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, Lisa Mladinich, Elizabeth Scalia, Carolyn Woo, Mark Hart, and Jeff Young—focuses on some dimension of your spiritual, emotional, intellectual, or physical life. Each day also includes a brief prayer and a question or thought to ponder throughout the day.
