    A Year of Grace: 365 Reflections for Caregivers

    • Description: "Nationally-known speaker and author Laraine Bennett knows the highs and the lows of the caregiver's world-she juggles her own work and family life as she helps meet the needs of her talented, artistic mother now completely incapacitated by a devastating stroke. In A Year of Grace: 365 Reflections for Caregivers, Laraine offers daily respite for the weary caregiver, a chance to recharge and refresh the mind and spirit, and to look anew, with gratitude and hope, at the value of every human life. Each brief daily reflection includes a Scripture reading or quote, and a reflection for the day. Enlightening, refreshing, and upbeat, A Year of Grace, is a daily reminder for you-the caregiver-of the important role you play to bring Christ's love to those in your care."

    Why Be Catholic? 10 Answers to a Very Important Question

    • Description: Growing up Catholic during a time of great social and theological upheaval and transition, a time in which countless Catholics abandoned their religion in search of something else, Patrick Madrid learned a great deal about why people leave Catholicism and why others stay. This experience helped him gain many insights into what it is about the Catholic Church that some people reject, as well as those things that others treasure. Drawing upon Madrid's personal experiences, Why Be Catholic? offers a deeply personal, fact-based, rationale for why everyone should be Catholic or at least consider the Catholic Church in a new light.
    • Segment Guests:
      • Patrick Madrid
        President, Envoy Institute

        Patrick has authored or edited more than 20 books on Catholic themes including, Pope Fiction, Search and Rescue, Does the Bible Really Say That? and Envoy for Christ: 25 Years as a Catholic Apologist. He edited and co-authored the multi-volume Surprised by Truth series. Over the past 26 years, Patrick has published numerous popular articles on Scripture, Church history, patristics, apologetics, and evangelization in various Catholic and Protestant periodicals, and he has contributed scholarly articles on apologetics in the New Catholic Encyclopedia.
