    Hi Lisa,

    Looks like a great book! Please enter me for a chance to win one.

    Been praying for you! Hope everything’s going well.


  2. Lisa,
    Just read the interview with the editor this morning and had the opportunity to recommend it to the parish DRE this afternoon! I’d love to hear more about what you thought — assuming that you had the chance to review it yourself.

    Thanks for the opportunity to ‘win’ a copy.

  3. Hi Lisa. I would love a chance to win this book! It would be wonderful timing with my daughter having just turned 10!

    Thank you, Lisa, for giving us the opportunity to win one of these books. I am a DRE and also teach a junior high class. I am always looking for good resources. Candice

  5. I have 2 “tweens” and would LOVE to be able to use this w/them…and my daughter when it’s her turn in a few years, too! Thanks, Lisa!!!

  6. Having 2 – 13 yo girls in the midst of all things, “tween”, I’d love to get this. Thank you for the offer!

  7. Dear Lisa
    I adore your podcast – I’d love to win, since here in Denmark where I live, we have pitifully few catholic resources for twens of witch I have two 
    Keep up the good work. You’re making at tremendous difference to me. Your podcasts (and the other SQPN shows) light up my day as I struggle to raise three good Catholics Children in a secular society.
    All my best
