Extreme Makeover - Teresa Tomeo
Popular radio host Teresa Tomeo knows from experience that the self-image of American women is being distorted by pop culture. With its emphasis on youth, physical beauty, and sexuality, the secular media is encouraging women--and girls--to see themselves primarily as sex objects.
So what are women steeped in the Hollywood and Cosmo girl version of reality to do? Undergo Tomeo's Extreme Makeover. With the help of this book, they can shed the toxic messages that objectify and enslave them and embrace the truth about being a beloved daughter of God.

 Spirituality of Fasting

Spirituality of Fasting
This treasury of spiritual wisdom draws on sources ancient and current—from Augustine to Michael Pollan—to consider anew how fasting informs the relationships between creator/creature, body/soul, and rich/poor.
In a timely response to Pope Benedict's urging that the value and meaning of fasting need to be "rediscovered and encouraged again in our day," The Spirituality of Fasting is excellent for small groups, parish retreats, homily preparation, and recommended Lenten reading lists.

 Beyond the Birds and the Bees

Beyond the Birds and the Bees
"The Talk." It's one of the most daunting prospects parents face. Communicating the richness of Catholic teaching on sexuality in a faithful and effective way can be an overwhelming responsibility. But does it have to be so?

In this thoroughly revised version of Beyond the Birds and the Bees, Greg and Lisa Popcak empower you with the tools needed to move well beyond "the Talk" by offering a comprehensive guide to raising sexually whole and holy children. Using the riches of Blessed John Paul II's Theology of the Body, the Popcaks help you safely navigate your children from infancy through the teenage years and beyond.

 Living the Rosary

Living the Rosary
The Rosary, often called “the Gospel in miniature,” is both explained and meditated upon by Rev. John Phalen, C.S.C., president of Holy Cross Family Ministries and one of today’s leading Rosary evangelists.
Living the Rosary: Finding Your Life in the Mysteries situates each of the twenty “mysteries” of the life of Jesus within both biblical and modern stories of conversion and spiritual growth. Beginning with his own vocation story (an example of “annunciation”), Phalen offers twenty different stories—some scriptural, some personal, all of them practical—that will help readers better understand and live each mystery of the Rosary.

Simplifying the Soul: Lenten Practices to Renew Your Spirit
“What are you giving up for Lent this year?” It’s the expected question amongst Christian friends each spring. In Simplifying the Soul: Lenten Practices to Renew Your Spirit, Huston asks her readers a deeper, alternative sort of question: “How will you rid your life of excess this Lent?” She encourages readers to see Lent as a time to seek out silence and free themselves of “stuff” and to acknowledge the connections between what they pray about and what they do.
