Book Review: Subverted

Book Review: Subverted

   It may only be early in the year but I’m calling it as I see it. Subverted is one of the must read books of the year. No, I’m not exaggerating. It’s no secret that I’ve researched a lot about feminism and its consequences and that, in my case, my passion for this area […]

Book Review: Ear Of The Heart

Book Review: Ear Of The Heart

   Elvis Presley movies were a big part of my childhood. In the days when the midday movie was generally an Elvis one, my mother introduced us to the man many still grieve as having died too young. Unbeknownst to me, one of the ‘Elvis’ girls, who co-starred with him into two movies, and famously […]

Book Review: Father Elijah Series

Book Review: Father Elijah Series

    Books Reviewed: Father Elijah: An Apocalypse and Elijah in Jerusalem   This two book series certainly packs a punch. Michael O’Brien’s novels have a rollicking plot, complete with conspiracy theories, assassinations and intrigue and yet they are also interwoven with intense discussions on politics, Catholicism and the Antichrist. Father Elijah himself is a […]

Book Review: Raising God-First Kids In A Me-First World

Book Review: Raising God-First Kids In A Me-First World

  This book appealed to me instantly. From the very introduction the author present the reasoning behind her book, and the humility that almost prevented her from writing it in the first place. Barbara Curtis’ style is open, warm and engaging and never takes on a holier-than-thou tone. In fact, as she shares her own […]

Book Review: We'll Never Tell Them

Book Review: We’ll Never Tell Them

     This haunting and yet uplifting novel is much more than it seems. It spans a period of close to a hundred years, in places including colonial Malta and Edwardian England, and quietly constructs a character driven plot that steadily builds in intensity. The characters, especially Liljana, are tangibly real. Each of them is […]

Giving Up Hollywood For God

Giving Up Hollywood For God

  Eduardo Verastegui had it all by today’s standards. He had conquered the worlds of modelling, music, television and had just broken into films. He lived the Hollywood lifestyle with fast cars and fast women. He lived the high life: fame, fortune and women fell at his feet. He was successfully breaking into the US […]

Book Review - Rooted In Love

Book Review – Rooted In Love

Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle is a familiar name in Catholic circles. She is a bestselling author, a popular EWTN television and radio host and called Mother Teresa a friend. Her own life story is incredibly inspiring and every time she brings out a new book I have to admit that I get more than a little […]

BOOK REVIEW ~ “Men, Women and the Mystery of Love: Practical Insights from John Paul II’s Love and Responsibility”

  I was excited about reading this book, seeing it praised one day on my Facebook news feed. Anytime I have read or heard anything by Pope John Paul II I have had my mind blown! What an insightful, intelligent, Christ like man he was. I have so much admiration for him. This book works […]

Book Review: "Holiness For Housewives: And Other Working Women"  ~ Hubert Van Zeller

Book Review: “Holiness For Housewives: And Other Working Women” ~ Hubert Van Zeller

——————————– I knew I was going to like this book as soon as I read the title “Holiness For Housewives: And Other Working Women”. Zeller chose to say other, which gave me confidence that he understood that although being a housewife and stay at home mum may not be a paid job, it is WORK. […]

Book Review: Momnipotent

Book Review: Momnipotent

From the first few pages to the end, this book was an engaging read. Danielle Bean, in a manner that reads like a chat with a close girlfriend, sets out to encourage and lift up mums who, though they love their kids and husbands, can often end up feeling exhausted, burned out, disillusioned and doubtful […]
