Book Recommendations

This month we are offering 4 options for your May book clubs. May is the month of Mary and mothers so we have included an option for both topics. Find some women, order your books and get ready to gather and read this May.

First is an option for a Marian book study, The World's First Love: Mary, Mother of God  by Archbishop Fulton Sheen. This book presents powerful insights into how Our Lady can help us in dealing with the problems of today's world.

Second we have three book options on parenting.  As we celebrate mothers this month we thought it might be nice to give an option for gathering with other women to share our trials and successes plus get some good practical faith based advice. No matter what stage of mothering you are in we have book for you!

Marian Book Study

The World's First Love: Mary Mother of God presents powerful insights into how Our Lady can help us in dealing with the problems in todays world. 

While considering the different phases of Mary's life, Bishop Sheen discusses various problems common to mankind of every age and reveals clearly that every problem can be resolved. He emphasizes the unique dignity, strength and gifts of women and their ability to help heal the world's problems. Sheen stresses mankind's need of the Mother of God and her burning love for all her children.
