You've found a space that's all about honoring who you were created to be and living it to the fullest.
Easily one of the most important books I've worked on in my nearly twenty years in publishing, The Road to Hope: Responding to the Crisis of Addiction is what my co-author, Keaton Douglas, and I hope will be a game-changer in the field of addiction and recovery as well as in the body of the Church.
Addiction affects us all in one way or another, and so we are all called to find our place in being part of the solution--that solution being the extension of Christ's love toward those we might have once considered "other." In this way, responding to the societal malady of addiction is a means of twenty-first century evangelization, or better, welcoming people home.

I firmly believe that every one of us is a unique creation, full of dignity, worthy of love, and called to serve. But too many of the forces in our culture suggest that our value comes from what we accomplish, that we ourselves are not enough, and that we are responsible only to ourselves. Through my vocation as a wife and mother and my calling as a writer, editor, and speaker, I hope to counter this destructive mentality and offer a life-giving alternative.
If there's anything I've learned in my vocation as a mother, it's that being a mom does not negate my being a child of God. When I started to reimagine the phrases I said to my kids over and over (and over) each day as words from God my Father to me, His beloved daughter, I joyfully rediscovered my true identity. Each (short!) chapter examines one of these phrases, ending with reflection questions, a prayer, and a saint to call on for further intercession. A great solo read and an excellent selection for a book club!

There's no substitute for the shared experience of a conversation or presentation. Whether it's live with a group of hundreds or an intimate cross-country video conference, I am always grateful for the opportunity to connect with other women in real time.
For parents, I speak on "Being the Change You Wish to See in Your Home," and for women, I speak on "Having It 'All' as an Authentic Catholic Woman."
I'm also happy to tailor a presentation to your group's needs.
