Perhaps you've already seen our big announcement that our next CatholicMom.com Book Club adventure will be a community reading of the fantastic book Momnipotent: The Not-So-Perfect Woman’s Guide to Catholic Motherhood.
The work of our amazing friend Danielle Bean, this book is one that lends itself well to dialogue, conversation, commiseration, and community prayer. As we've shared, we'll read the book together over eight weeks, with several of our best writers leading the conversation.
And we want you to be a part of the fun!
Here's Danielle, with a special overview of what this book is all about, and why you need to read it. Be sure to stay tuned to the very end for a taste of one mom's "real world" and why this book is so relevant for all of us:
