Join us as we read and discuss Good Enough is Good Enough by Colleen Duggan.
Subtitled “Confessions of an imperfect Catholic mom,” this book is surprising in many ways. You might think you’re getting humorous Tales from the Cry Room — and you wouldn’t be wrong — but there’s much more to this book than that. Author Colleen Duggan is open about the messiness of her life, from issues in her own childhood to the discovery that one of her children has a genetic disorder, because she wants to encourage other moms to move toward healing. This book is motivating, honest, heartbreaking, funny, and challenging. In short, it’s exactly the kind of book we love to share with you in our CatholicMom.com Book Clubs!
Colleen Duggan is a Catholic writer, teacher and speaker whose work has appeared in Catholic Digest, Creative Catechist, CatholicMom.com, Aleteia, and Integrated Catholic Life. While you wait for your copy of the book to arrive, enjoy her articles here at CatholicMom.com!
