The Not-So-Perfect Woman's Guide to Catholic Motherhood
Author: Danielle Bean
Publisher: Ascension Press
In Momnipotent (the book), Danielle Bean provides much-needed encouragement to all women.

This book is a subjective account of stories my mother told me. It is not written for historical accuracy. Rather, it is a celebration of my heritage. The book is a sharing of stories that Mom told me of her life from her arrival in Grand Falls, Newfoundland, Canada. Mom was born in rural Newfoundland in the early 1900s. During the first fourteen years of her life, she and her family lived a very isolated lifestyle. Things changed one day when she got on a sled. The journey from dog sled, to ship, to train was an introduction to a change of lifestyle. There would be no going back to a winter house. If you are interested in what her life was like prior to this, please read the previous book entitled: Moms Stories. As you read, I hope you will visualize the life of a single woman in-service, grasp her desire for independence, travel with her in your mind back to an isolated community and experience her reaction to the physical environment of that time and how it impacted her world view. I compiled these memories so that future generations would know something of the heritage and the struggle that she faced as life in town changed her. Allow me to reiterate that I do not promise a factual account of any of the events. I cling to the personal accounts of our Mom as she told them to me.
For every mom and every woman who has been like a mom to others, this book celebrates you. This 365-day devotional contains short, inspirational readings, poems, Scriptures and prayers that recognize your strength, your influence, and the beauty you alone bring to the lives of children. It honors the commitment you have made to God and to your family to always do your best. Officially, Mother’s Day comes but once a year, but for you, the gratitude, love, and praise never end. For you, Every Day Is Mother’s Day!
How I Lost More than a Quarter Ton and Gained a Life
Author: Nancy Makin
Category: Biography & Autobiography
A moving, funny, tongue-in-cheek memoir about a woman who lost and found herself online. Nancy Makin weighed an astounding 703 pounds in May 2000. She was forty-five and suffered from obesity-related maladies. Due to shame and logistics, she was homebound for a dozen years. But all that changed when she received a computer. In cyberspace she found the friendliness, the connection, the acceptance and the nurturing she'd been missing for so long. She followed no particular diet plan; no surgeries, pills, potions or ab-crunching exercises played a part, and yet today Nancy has lost more than 530 pounds and kept it off for more than seven years. Her tale is one of redemption and shows a growing America that there is hope...if you believe.
