Thank you to our Sponsors!

Today we have two awesome sponsors from the Catholic book world to thank.

First, thanks again Catholic Word for sponsoring this episode of’s CM Hangout Podcast for Kimberly's book, Mommy, Mommy, When You Pray.What do you say when your children ask you how to pray? In Mommy, Mommy, When You Pray, a mother shares the joy and thanksgiving she offers through prayer. The charming illustrations and rhymes capture the simple joys of family life, and this enthusiasm for prayer resonates with children’s hearts.

Second, many thanks again for Sarah Reinhard generous support of our CM Hangout Podcast by sponsoring this episode for her book, Word by Word: Slowing Down with the Hail Mary.Word by Word is now available from Ave Maria Press (and from your local Catholic bookstore or online at your favorite book retailer). In it, Sarah Reinhard has gathered 40 different voices to take a look at why every word — from the “Hail” right down to every single “The” — is a critical part of this prayer. So often, we all tend to whip through the Hail Mary and rattle it off without really considering what we’re praying and saying. This book is sure to make you reconsider the prayer and, hopefully, draw you closer to the Blessed Mother and, through her, to Jesus. Be sure to check the show notes and order your copy today!

You can read more about Sarah and her book here and check out what others are saying about it! Thank you again, Sarah, for your support for and the CM Hangout.

Sponsorship Open!

We have just a few more sponsorship dates open for the rest of the year! Thank you to all who have supported our CM Hangout project. If you'd like to help this project continue, the price is ripe now so send us an email to Lisa or Erika.
