+  Yes, God!: What Ordinary Families Can Learn About Parenting From Today's Vocation Stories

  • Description: In a culture that is often dark and discouraging, where can parents look for help in raising their children? By profiling ten men and women on their journeys to the priesthood and the convent, award-winning author Susie Lloyd discovered lessons that can be used by any parents who want to raise faithful children. Here are the heartwarming stories of five priests, five nuns, and the parents who raised them to be open to God's call. Lloyd relates some of their joys and setbacks, reveals their guiding principles and rallying cries, and passes along tips from the "master" parents. Susie also shares some of her own (often humorous) parenting tales, and she helps readers understand the various dynamics of Catholic family life and the diverse factors that influence a child's decision to say "yes" to God.

+  Contraception and Catholicism: What the Church Teaches and Why

  • Description: Press release -- Despite the Catholic Church's clear opposition to contraception, many individuals, including Catholics, consider the Church's stance misogynistic and outdated. Maybe you, or someone you know, feel the same way. In perspective of the prevailing ideologies of today's mainstream society-a morality dictated by feeling, the assumed inevitability of extramarital sexual activity as necessary for human fulfillment, and the unconsidered idea that contraception is a magic cure for unwanted pregnancy and disease-the Church's teaching on contraception may surely seem like a hard pill to swallow. But really, it is not. Author Angela Franks, PhD, an experienced pro-life speaker and educator, discovered this truth herself.
