Introducing my first guest on "Catholic Mom's Cafe"!

Two weeks from today I'll be heading for the EWTN network in Alabama to film my new television series "Catholic Mom's Cafe." Please keep the series in your prayers. I'm excited I'll be able to bring this series to you through my partnership with EWTN. 

I think it's about time I introduce my first guest to you.  I'm happy to tell you that Marge Fenelon will be my guest on my first show titled, "Kids and the Culture."

Marge Fenelon

Marge is a longtime contributor to a variety of Catholic and secular publications - including Our Sunday Visitor and National Catholic Register. She's a contributor to Catholic Lane, Integrated Catholic Life, and CatholicMom. Her column, The Whirl, appears in the Milwaukee Catholic Herald and has won favorable reviews from laity and clergy alike. She's the author of two devotionals and four full-length books. Her latest book, Imitating Mary: Eight Marian Virtues for the Modern Mom, will be released by Ave Maria Press in Spring 2013.

Marge is a regular guest on Catholic radio and holds a B.A. in Journalism/Public Relations from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, a Certificate in Spiritual Mentoring from Cardinal Stritch University, and a Certificate in Marian Studies from the International Marian Research Institute. She spent several years as a public relations consultant.

Marge and her husband, Mark, are members of the Apostolic Movement of Schoenstatt and assist in the faith formation of young couples in the movement. They have four children ages 26 to 16 who, combined with a rocket of a dog named Daisy, configure the fun-loving and sometimes outrageous Fenelon Clan. You can learn more about Marge here at her blog:

So there you have it--my first guest announced! Stay tuned here for more news about "Catholic Mom's Cafe" as it unfolds.

God bless you and yours!
