Popular Catholic blogger releases first book on Catholic family life

FRESNO, Ca (January 25, 2010) - Many mothers are required to multi-task these days, and in their passion for putting family first, often neglect themselves. Founder and editor of CatholicMom.com, Lisa Hendey, coaches moms in how to care for themselves - heart, mind, body and soul - so that they can better love and care for their families, their communities and their Church.

In The Handbook for Catholic Moms: Nurturing Your Heart, Mind, Body, and Soul, Hendey shares stories from her personal life as a wife and mother, engaging and connecting with readers as she reflects on topics such as parenting styles, types of schooling and working outside the home. Her warmth and wisdom, coupled with the realities of her daily life, shows how a woman can be a successful Catholic wife and mother, despite life's challenges.

"Lisa Hendey is the sister-friend of Catholic motherhood!" says Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle, host of EWTN's Everyday Blessings For Catholic Moms. "We know her so well through her work for families, her website and her engaging podcasts. Lisa now brings us her book in which she openly discusses the essential elements of a Catholic mom's life in an exceptionally delightful, engaging, dynamic and practical manner."

Hendey, along with contributions from other Catholic moms around the country, shares stories and insights about the lives of Catholic families, inspiring readers to find better balance between family and personal needs. Each chapter of The Handbook for Catholic Moms contains relevant scripture passages, Church doctrine and quotes from the lives of Saints and concludes with a homework-style reflection to help the reader apply the book's principles to the real-life challenges of everyday life.

Noted Catholics such as Danielle Bean, Father James Martin, Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle and Phil Lenahan contribute their expertise and wisdom to The Handbook for Catholic Moms.

The Handbook for Catholic Moms is Hendey's first book and is now available for pre-order through The Catholic Company, with an anticipated release date of February 2010.

Lisa M. Hendey is the Founder and Editor of CatholicMom.com, a Catholic web site focusing on the Catholic faith, Catholic parenting and family life, and Catholic cultural topics. Hendey, a member of The Maximus Group Speaker's Bureau, also tours the country, speaking to groups about marriage, family and the Catholic Church. Hendey is the host of Catholic Moments, a weekly interview format talk show featuring notable Catholic authors, musicians, and personalities. Also a freelance writer, Hendey is a regular contributor to Catholic Exchange, Catholic Online and Catholic.net. Her articles have appeared in the National Catholic Register, Our Sunday Visitor, Canticle Magazine, Grapevine Magazine and Kids' Ark Magazine. She is also a member of the FaithandFamilyLive.com blogging team. She attended the University Of Notre Dame and earned a Master's Degree in Human Resource Development from Vanderbilt University.
