I truly hope if you’re on Pinterest and you’re reading this column today, that you will run over and immediately follow Women We Love, my favorite board from Catholic Women’s Conference. This is only one of the many cool boards from the San Antonio Catholic Women’s Conference (held annually each September), but it’s the one that most grabs my attention. Women We Love features pins of many of our favorite saints and blesseds, but also some lovely prayers and meditations. What a beautiful way to employ Pinterest to celebrate the Feminine Genius! If you like what you see on their Pinterest boards, why not consider attending this phenomenal event for women?!

And here’s this week’s tip of the week from Allison Girone of the Catholic Pinterest Group Board who has kindly agreed to offer a weekly pointer for us on how to use some best practices to enjoy and effectively employ Pinterest:

Have you ever spent a weekend morning with a cup of coffee/tea and your boards?  Yes, YOUR boards.  Revisit them, schedule some time every now and then to go through each of your boards. I think you’ll see them anew and be delighted by them. Perhaps you’ll find you want to edit them, if there is something there that no longer reflects you? You may be inspired to create a new board from the creative juices and introspection this exercise may produce?

If you’re a Catholic using Pinterest, please drop a link in the comments below to share your boards. Also, I’d love to hear about why you love Pinterest and how you think this latest craze might be used to spread the Good News.

    Hi, Lisa! I love Pinterest (though I can’t pronounce it right to save my soul). I think it’s one of the best web invention yet: right up there with Gmail. It’s great because it takes bookmarks to the next level. It replaces torn out magazine pages for inspiration books. It allows me to pin things that appeal to me aesthetically and then look at them to pinpoint why I like them. It has been a great visual bulletin board. I have a growing board simply called Art that allows me to collect beautiful pieces that move me, and it includes lovely renderings of the Blessed Mother. In that way, I am using the board to inspire and learn about myself (what I like, etc.), and as a side effect, anyone looking at my pins in their feed or browsing through my boards will see my love for Our Lady (for example). In short, I love Pinterest! Happy Pinning! 🙂

  2. Lisa, this morning my inbox was filled with Pinterest notifications. I was stunned…then I found out your featured our Pinterest board – mystery solved! Thanks so much. The Catholic Women’s Conference is excited to be connecting with our lovely Conference attendees and friends on a personal level.

  3. Thanks so much for posting this Pinterest Board of the Week!

    For Pauline Books & Media, Pinterest is the perfect avenue to advance the mission of the Daughters of St. Paul: evangelization through the means of social communication.

    As highly visual creatures, pinning is a way to connect, share, and inspire. Our boards not only provide a visual showcase of our books and other products, but a space to spread the Good News through current events, inspirational quotes, and more!

    • Thanks Pauline — we LOVE your books and resources, and especially your wonderful Sisters! Could you kindly post a link to your boards so that I can be sure I’m following you? Thanks!
