As I have spoken about many times in the past year, we moved to a community with an AMAZING supportive group of Catholic homeschooling moms. Many of these moms I knew from living here in years past, but I have also met many new moms that I am now so blessed to call friends. We play at the park, have moms nights (and dad's nights) out, meet for faith formation opportunities, and much more.
One of these moms is Theresa Martin (some of her kids are up there mixed in with mine). I'd write an awesome endorsement and bio of Theresa, but she already has this great image on her blog summing her up perfectly.
Theresa blogs at New Feminism Rising and is also an author of an amazing book, Woman How Great Thou Art. She is also a regular speaker and presenter at area events in our diocese. What I love about Theresa's book is that it is all about being an awesome woman of God through your femininity and womanhood, not in spite of it. Embracing those uniquely feminine aspect of our make up, not trying to overcome them. This book is full of insights from Theresa, quotes from scripture, and the wisdom of Church fathers and teachings. Reading through each chapter is like having the chance to sit down and chat with a friend. I always find myself nodding along or raising an eyebrow as I consider her many thoughts. I don't know any woman who wouldn't benefit from reading this book!

Note: This is my first time using Rafflecopter and I am not willing to pay for an account just yet until I try it (yes I know everyone else is using it...I like to make my own decisions). That means this is a bit of an experiment and a stripped down one at that. Be patient with me please if there are kinks!
