Mary Lou, author of Catholic Family Bootcamp will discuss her 30-day-devotional intended to build virtue within the family unit. The virtues developed include: hope, love, justice, prudence, temperance, fortitude and faith. Daily Scripture readings and suggested tasks make the devotional easy to follow.
As a former Air Force pilot, I've been to boot camp, specifically at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. That was the toughest six weeks of my life! Conquering boot camp was one of my greatest achievements. I love that my friend Mary Lou has titled this 30-day-family devotional "Catholic Family Boot Camp." Her program is grounded in solid Catholic principles and virtues. She sets the bar high but gives families plenty of motivation and encouragement to persevere. She perfectly plays the role of the sensitive drill sergeant by setting high standards, providing the right tools for the job, and instilling confidence that success can be achieved. Mary Lou doesn't yell, humiliate or get in your face but generously shares her wisdom and experience in cultivating a holy family.
Mary Lou was motivated to write Catholic Family Boot Camp when she realized that there was nothing like it out there for Catholic families. Mary Lou states,
My husband and I have always operated our family as a team, and we wanted an active devotional we could do as a family. I combined our years of experience in marriage, life, as marriage/parenting coaches and as pre-Cana instructors and came up with the idea for this book.
Mary Lou invites all "boot campers" to join her at www.CatholicFamilyBootcamp.com to ask questions, share ideas and just have fun!
Also appearing is US Marine Corps Captain Nathan Waters via satellite from Afghanistan. Captain Waters will discuss the many ways that his faith sustains him during his deployment.
Be sure to tune in at 10:30AM ET!
