Today’s “Book Note” isn’t really a “note”. It’s a love song. The singer — although she’s not actually singing (but her words are really music to a woman’s ears) — is one of my best friends and favorite authors Pat Gohn, who recently penned the outlandishly awesome book Blessed, Beautiful and Bodacious: Celebrating the Gift of Catholic Womanhood. Pat recently hosted a webinar with ENDOW Executive Director and the writer of Pat’s foreword, Terry Polakovic.
Since I know that most women aren’t sitting around in the middle of the day and that you may have missed this tremendous opportunity, I decided to share it here today. I hope you’ll carve out an hour of protected time (or two half hours), pour yourself a cup of tea, and treat yourself to a love song that will affirm your dignity as a woman. Here’s a blueprint of the webinar:
In this webinar Pat Gohn, author of the new book Blessed, Beautiful and Bodacious, and Endow’s Executive Director and Bodacious Foreword writer, Terry Polakovic, discuss the top themes that celebrate the gift of womanhood from a Catholic perspective. In this “Top Ten” style presentation, (with apologies to David Letterman), Pat and Terry unpack the wisdom and the beauty of the feminine genius, with a special emphasis on a woman’s blessed dignity, beautiful gifts, and bodacious mission.
Using a “best of” approach, these two educators will offer fast-paced snippets quoting key resources and magisterial documents that can be used as conversation starters with women, as well as offering resources that can become the basis of local parish curricula or discussion groups for women.
The new evangelization will never move forward without women understanding their specific role in it. Here’s a great place to start.
