I love producing the Among Women podcast and I thought I’d share a few recent podcasts that are very good for mothers-to-be, or for mothers who are still new to this vocation of motherhood.
The most recent episode, AW 164, features a conversation with Karen Minster from Paraclete Press, describing the role of Godparents, and introducing the new book, Becoming a Great God-Parent: everything a Catholic need to know.
The previous episode, AW 163, talked about Patrice Fagnant MacArthur’s must-have book, The Catholic Baby Name Book. If you are still on the fence about choosing a name for your child, you can’t go wrong with this book and this podcast will introduce you to it. It’s a great book to keep on the shelf if you also want to help older children select a Confirmation name too.
Others topic from the archives:
- AW 119: “The Interior Life of Mothers” with guest Dorothy Pilarski, author of Motherhood Matters.
- AW 71 Authors Danielle Bean and Elizabeth Foss talk about strengthening a mother’s vocation in Small Steps for Catholic Moms – a book now in re-release at Ave Maria Press.
- AW 26: Author Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle discusses her book Mother Teresa and Me.
New mothers might also enjoy the explanations of the mission of physical and spiritual motherhood found in my book, Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious.
