Default 1Echoes of the Divine by Melanie Jean Juneau

Although babies are pre-verbal, they are perceptive and remember, even their time in the womb. Since infants come from God, they are more spiritual than adults ever imagined. Melanie offers insights through slice-of-life stories which will surprise you and make you laugh. Her writing is humorous and heartwarming, thoughtful and thought provoking, with a current of spirituality running through it.

Melanie Jean Juneau is a wife, writer and mother of nine children who blogs at joy of nine9. The very existence of a joyful mother of nine children seems to confound people. Part of her call and her witness is to write the truth about children, family, marriage and the sacredness of life, especially a life lived in God.

Blue Hydrangeas: an Alzheimer’s love story by Marianne Sciucco

Default 4

What if the person who knew you best and loved you most forgot your face, and couldn’t remember your name?  Jack has made an impossible promise: He and Sara will stay together in their beautiful home no matter what the disease brings. However, after nine years of selfless caregiving, complicated by her progressing Alzheimer’s and his own failing heart, he finally admits he can no longer care for her.

Marianne Sciucco is not a nurse who writes but a writer who happens to be a nurse. A lover of words and books, she dreamed of becoming an author when she grew up but became a nurse to avoid poverty. She later brought her two passions together and writes about the intricate lives of people struggling with health and family issues. Her debut novel, Blue Hydrangeas, an Alzheimer’s love story, is rated 4.7 stars on Amazon and has more than 60 5-star reviews. A native Bostonian, she lives in New York’s Hudson Valley and, when not writing, works as a campus nurse at a community college. She loves books, the beach, and craft beer, and especially enjoys the three of them together.

Learning to Pray with St. JosemariaLearning to Pray with St. Josemaria by Tom McDonough (Editor)

To pray is to talk to God, but how? With this book we learn from a master, St. Josemaría Escrivá, the founder of Opus Dei. Part I takes selections from his published works in which he speaks directly with God. Part II is his collection of New Testament passages assembled in 1933 for his own prayer. Together they accent the simple, confident, childlike way he talked with his divine Father. St. Josemaría’s message was and is that God calls everyone to holiness, most of us in the midst of the mundane things of every day.

Tom McDonough has been learning to pray with St. Josemaria for 45 years.
