'Tis the season ... already!

In the "better late than never" category ... Guess who's going to be on EWTN over the next few weeks? Yep ... yours truly!

Living His Life Abundantly/EWTN has scheduled the airings of my two shows with Johnnette! The show will air four times each week on the following time schedule: Mondays at 10 p.m., Tuesdays at 4 a.m. (great for those early-morning feedings!), Wednesdays at 2 p.m., and Fridays at 4 p.m.

* Mary, the Feminine Ideal. Do you -- or does someone you know -- ever have difficulty coming to terms with Mary as our mother in heaven? In this show, Johnnette, Patti Mansfield, and I talk about Mary -- and do a none-too-subtle plug for Canticle magazine. The show will air the week of November 4.

* Raising Up Mommy.
In this show Johnnette and I talk about my new book with Simon Peter Press, Raising Up Mommy: Virtues for Difficult Mothering Moments. Originally titled Taming the Mommy Monster (I still like this one better, but Johnnette worried that it might scare off some readers), this book takes a look at each of the seven deadly sins as expressed in motherhood. It contains quizzes to help you spot your trouble spots, and offers exercises to help you improve in strength and endurance. (This is the first in the "Women of Grace LifeGuide Series." Later this fall, we will also be publishing a facilitator kit, which will allow the book to be used in group studies.) The show will air the week of November 25. Closer to this time, I'll post a reminder on "Mommy Monsters," which you can feel free to link to as the Spirit leads.

I'm so excited to have the information about your shows on EWTN. Please remind us all again as we get closer - I should just put them on my calendar.

Thanks for playing along with the marriage meme. I loved reading what you shared!

Hi Heidi,

My mom is an avid EWTN fan and she saw your show on Mary. She was so excited that I actually know you!

When is your book coming out? Please let me know so I can post the review on my site.

Best wishes,

Hi, Heidi!

A friend of mine saw you and Johnette on EWTN Live last week and she was thrilled that you held up the edition of Canticle that has Ellie on the cover. I am so sorry I missed it. She said you spoke well and she was quite moved.
