Non-Fiction - The Domestic Church: Room by Room A Mother's Study Guide by Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle

Through her growing body of work, Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle has supported and inspired countless mothers. With the publication of The Domestic Church: Room by Room Donna-Marie offers them yet another source of enlightenment.  This Mothers Study Guide will aid women studying either independently or in intimate groups to grow in their vocations to motherhood. Firmly rooted in Catholic doctrine and complimented by both scriptural and catechetical references, the guide offers a "room by room" look at the role of spiritual parenting, encompassing every aspect of a woman's life. Small groups will be aided by Donna-Marie's instructions for forming and getting the most out of a small group experience, as well as the helpful Leader's Guide which accompanies the study.  I look forward to gathering with a group of my friends to enjoy this study and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to grow in both holiness and familial commitment.
