I’ve been reading about Lisa Hendey‘s upcoming book, The Handbook for Catholic Moms, and today it is available for pre-order at the Catholic Company! The book is expected to be published in January. I pre-ordered mine; the contributors include Sharmane Adams, Susan Bailey, Rachel Balducci, Mary Ellen Barrett, Danielle Bean, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, Maria de Lourdes Ruiz Scaperlanda, Lisa Duffy, Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur, Fr. Jay A. Finelli, Reverend Mr. Tom Fox, Pat Gohn, Kelly the Kitchen Kop, Mary Ann Kuharski, Phil Lenahan, James Martin, SJ, Laurie Manhardt, Arwen Mosher, Holly Pierlot, Sarah Reinhard, Paula Rutherford, Rebecca Ryskind Teti, Sue Stanton, Kate Wicker, Melissa Wiley–an all-star list to be sure. I recognize many of these names and look forward to seeing what they have to say. Moms can never get too much encouragement!
