Grosgrain: Modcloth Dress Ed

Colleen Hammond shares real-life examples of how women can accentuate the grace and beauty of their femininity, and she shows that modest definitely does not mean frumpy!! DRESSING WITH DIGNITY covers it all! www.ColleenHammon...

The perfect guide for parents — as well as religious — who want a practical guide to help mind your manners in any situation, and to foster morally good inner character traits that will be exhibited in an outward manner.

There are plenty of etiquette and manners books available, but how many are exclusively for Catholics? How many focus on the fact that manners are morally good inner character traits that are exhibited in an outward manner? Our lives are full of moments when we are not sure how to handle a certain situation. These occasions of uncertainty and discomfort could be everyday activities or special events that only happen once a year. $10.00

Pressure Cooker Recipes! Why buy a book when so much is available online. I'm suddenly VERY into my pressure cooker!

Pressure Cooker Recipes

HIGHLY recommended. Originally published in Italian by the Vatican Press, this book offers readers insights into the sacrality which ought to surround the distribution and reception of Holy Communion Relying on accurate history and good theology, the author makes a plea for a return to distributing the Eucharist to kneeling communicants on the tongue — the practice now restored at papal liturgies by Pope Benedict XVI. The book comes with the endorsement of the Pope.

Want to learn to be a better cook? The science and techniques behind perfect recipes. I give this as a bridal shower/wedding gift (an alternative to the Cook's Illustrated cookbook).

My favorite cookbook, which I always give as a bridal shower/wedding gift because it guarantees impeccable results.

Another great gift for the men (young and old) in our lives. MANVOTIONALS is a collection of advice from the philosophy of Aristotle to the success books of the late 19th and early 20th centuries to the speeches and essays of Theodore Roosevelt. All designed to inspire men to live life to the fullest and realize their complete potential as men. The book is divided into 7 Manly Virtues. Each chapter helps the reader understand a particular virtue and become inspired to live it.

Whether you are braving the wilds with your friends, courting your girlfriend or raising a family, inside you'll find practical information and inspiration for every area of life."

RULES FOR MY UNBORN SON is a collection of traditional, humorous, and urbane fatherly advice for boys. Much better than "Because I said so!" Cute stuff.

    I just showed this to Ian. He's going to see if he can carry it at Aquinas and More!

5-Vol set. If you wish to improve your relationship with God and grow in virtue daily, then these books will guide you! Spend only a few minutes each day getting closer to God through mental prayer.

Gone are the days when women dressed with beauty and charm that accentuated their femininity. Much of what passes for women’s fashions today appeals to the baser senses of men and women, making it increasingly difficult to maintain the respect that women deserve!
