Every Parent's Battle: A Family Guide to Resisting Pornography
No matter how busy or complicated life becomes, God can be found in the details of the day. In this lighthearted yet realistic look at the ups and downs of daily life, Teresa Tomeo provides daily reflections to soothe the souls of Christian women everywhere. Her wisdom and humor will show you how you can experience God's presence in the most ordinary moments.

Ever struggled to find the right words to talk about the threat of pornography with your kids? Too many of us avoid the subject, depending on simple technology filters to protect them. Yet children at very early ages are under attack and at risk to fall prey to pornography addiction. As parents, we must be prepared to deal with the issue head-on.

Every Parent’s Battle: A Family Guide to Resisting Pornography not only exposes the frightening prevalence of pornography in our sex-obsessed culture, it equips parents with concrete and tested strategies to educate their kids about intimacy, human dignity, and sexuality as God intended it to be.

“Dan Spencer’s new book … provides Catholic and other parents with tools and strategies that are aimed at prevention, rather than recovery, in the spiritual battle for the virtue of chastity…. I heartily recommend this book for your family’’s happiness and the joyful embracing of life and dignity offered to us by Jesus Christ.”
— ARCHBISHOP JOSEPH F. NAUMANN, ARCHDIOCESE OF KANSAS CITY, KANSAS

“The Roman Empire was a pornographic society - with all the misery that implies - but our own society is far worse. History shows that this problem can be overcome in only one way: the way of the Christian family. Dan Spencer shows us, in practical terms, what that means for us as parents. Reading this book is not just a good idea. It’s a duty.”
— MIKE AQUILINA, EWTN HOST AND AUTHOR OF SEVEN REVOLUTIONS: HOW CHRISTIANITY CHANGED THE WORLD AND CAN CHANGE IT AGAIN

Pope Francis, in his recent exhortation Amoris Laetitia("Joy of Love"), praises marriage as a unique "friendship marked by passion" and "a free, faithful, and exclusive love." We live in a culture that doesn't cherish the permanence of marriage, according to Karee and Manuel Santos. Even Catholics aren't immune from the epidemic of divorce. But how can you make the ideals of being forever, faithful, fruitful, and free a reality? How can you maintain a healthy Catholic marriage when society is pushing against it?

No marriage--even a sacramental one--is free from conflicts about sex, money, child-rearing, in-laws, and work/life balance. Marriage columnist Karee Santos and her husband, Manuel, a psychiatrist who has been counseling couples for more than fifteen years, explore how applying the wisdom of the Catholic faith to marriage can free us to experience deep, lasting, and soul-satisfying love.

We live in a culture that doesn't cherish the permanence of marriage, according to Karee and Manuel Santos. Even Catholics aren't immune from the epidemic of divorce. But St. John Paul II, in his Theology of the Body, calls engaged, newlyweds, and long-married couples alike to be "forever," "faithful," "fruitful," and "free."

How can you maintain a healthy Catholic marriage when society is pushing against it?

In The Four Keys to Everlasting Love, the Santoses draw on real-life stories, scriptural principles, and the timeless wisdom of St. John Paul II to help you celebrate the sacrament of Marriage without downplaying the difficulties of married life. In doing so, they will inspire you to stay in love with each other, Christ, and the wisdom of the Church.

The Santoses tell their own story as well: how they learned not to cling to personality, culture, or religious differences; how they learned to put family first; how they overcame health crises that exacted a physical, emotional, and spiritual toll; and how they navigated stressful holiday get-togethers with extended family. They let God transform them and make their marriage stronger.

Each chapter provides discussion questions, action prompts, quotes from the Catechism of the Catholic Church and various popes, and additional online and print resources to stimulate the couple's conversation, mutual understanding, and positive change. Free worksheets and other supplemental resources are available on the authors' website, canwecana.blogspot.com.

Extreme Makeover
Our Price: $21.95

Feeding Your Family's Soul: Dinner Table Spirituality is a vital tool to enable parents to transform a regular dinner time into a prayerful faith lesson for their elementary school to high school aged children. It will indeed help to fulfill the Catholic Church's vision for evangelization in the family and beyond.

Through 52 fun and creative faith lessons (one for each week of the year), this one-of-a-kind book will encourage parents and caregivers to seize the opportunity in teaching the Catholic faith to the children (the captive audience waiting to eat!) while gathered at the dinner table, and while reminding them of the value of coming together as a family to break bread and share hearts.

Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle has recently started writing a column for Legatus Magzine called "Feeding the Foodie" and has begun filming a new TV series for EWTN "Feeding Your Family's Soul".

Popular radio host Teresa Tomeo knows from experience that the self-image of American women is being distorted by pop culture. With its emphasis on youth, physical beauty, and sexuality, the secular media is encouraging women--and girls--to see themselves primarily as sex objects.

A professional TV and radio journalist, Tomeo pulls together the latest research on social behavior and trends in order to demonstrate that women are harming themselves and their chances for true happiness by adopting the thoroughly modern, sexually liberated lifestyle portrayed in magazines and movies. Packed with not only persuasive statistics but also powerful personal testimonies, Extreme Makeover shows that it is not the slogans of the sexual revolution and the women's liberation movement that free and dignify women, but the beautiful teachings of the Catholic Church.

So what are women steeped in the Hollywood and Cosmo girl version of reality to do? Undergo Tomeo's Extreme Makeover. With the help of this book, they can shed the toxic messages that objectify and enslave them and embrace the truth about being a beloved daughter of God.
