Check out Video bar
Check out the video bar below to view parts of the Faith & Culture episodes that I was in on recently on EWTN television along with a few other American delegates who attended the international Vatican congress earlier this year on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Mulieris Dignitatem. Another video clip is included as well. I have noticed that the bar changes at times and the EWTN segments might not be available at all times. However, when they are, they change to various parts of the episodes which is nice. :)

"Donna has submitted a number of articles that have found a place on the Catholic Exchange website, enriching our readers with her insights into the lives of modern women. She writes with a broad comprehension of the rapidly changing scene of this world, and with deep understanding of the challenges faced by Catholic women – and all women – today. It is clear from her writing that she believes in the power of women to make the world a better place and she is not afraid to challenge women to start that transformation in their own hearts and homes. Catholic Exchange readers have been very blessed to have Donna share her thoughts with them and as editor, I have been blessed by the high professional quality of Donna’s work." --Mary Kochan, Chief Editor

Prayerfully Expecting: A Nine Month Novena for Mothers-To-Be
I wrote this book while on complete bed rest during a high risk pregnancy with my fifth child, Mary-Catherine. Blessed Mother Teresa whom I knew at that time, gave me a foreword for the book. Pope John Paul II blessed it. It is a book to celebrate pregnancy as a wonderful time of anticipation as mothers await childbirth and it offers the expectant Mom the opportunity to transform her pregnancy into a novena of prayer to God. It's a "baby book" for the unborn baby! An expectant Mom will be able to follow her baby's progress and record her thoughts and prayers as well as save her ultrasound pictures to cherish in years to come.
