Catholic Mom's Cafe TV series launches TOMORROW and contests are announced!

My brand new television series Catholic Mom's Cafe will launch on EWTN tomorrow! The first show will air at 3:00 AM ET and later again at 6:30 PM ET. The shows will air all throughout the week--a new topic and guest each day.

To celebrate, I am conducting contests ALL week long!

I thought that busy, tired, dedicated, and totally DESERVING Moms, in addition to viewing the awesome new TV series (if I may say so myself!), would appreciate some CHOCOLATE, some PAMPERING from CRABTREE & EVELYN, some COFFEE, some TEA, INSPIRING BOOKS, a WILLIAMS SONOMA GIFT CARD, a beautiful Rosary, and maybe even more!

I will give you the details tomorrow for entering these contests. Please stay tuned. But I will tell you now that part of the contest relates to the content of the shows. You need to watch them to be able to answer questions to be entered into the contest for the Williams Sonoma gift card and possibly others as well. Some contests involve "liking" my face book page, or leaving a review of my book (books) on Amazon, etc and I will give you step by step directions on all of that. Don't worry! It's very simple. The most important thing is that you enjoy the shows!

Are you ready for this? So, here we go! Here are the prizes lined up for you!

Amazing Bridgewater chocolate!

Rich and excellent LIFEBOAT COFFEE!

Some pampering from Crabtree & Evelyn

More pampering from Crabtree & Evelyn!

Not everyone drinks coffee, so...

Relaxing tea!

A collection of my books (provided by Servant Books) complete with Audio CD's
of Embracing Motherhood narrated by Yours Truly!

Another collection of my books!

Still another collection of my books (provided by Our Sunday Visitor Publishing Co.)!

A GREAT $50.00 Gift Card from Williams Sonoma (thanks to Our Sunday Visitor)!

A pretty Rosary!
(Note: this is not necessarily the design and color)

You can win prizes by: 1) by watching the shows 2) by "liking" my Catholic Mom's Cafe Face Book page: 3) by leaving a review on Amazon for any (or all) of my MOM books which are:

  1. Catholic Mom's Cafe: 5-Minute Retreats for Every Day of the Year

    Don't forget to enter the contests this week!

    God bless you and yours!

  5. I left a huge comment and its gone after I chose the account I wanted to post under. this is why I rarely comment on blogs. Im probably just doing it wrong lol. I am so happy you have a show. I am usually a book hog, but I am on and off now bc I am fighting my 2nd bout with brain cancer in 6 yrs and have had seizures the past 4 months and drs are just now having me wear an EEG. im 2nd day on chemo again. It worked the first time for 3 yrs. I found out on dec. 24th, 2008 and I get a scan this dec. 24th, 2014 and I hope its shrinking again. I have had times of struggles with faith thru it all and I feel stronger in faith than anything else right now even thru my old doubts. God does have plans. I thank you for being such a gentle role model to all people, not only women. Seeing the show is good for times like this when its harder to read. Please say a prayer for me and I do pray for you, your show, and everyone who watches or reads your books.

    1. Hi "Shimmer 'N Faith." I'm sorry your whole comment got erased! I hate when that happens. :) It's happened to me on blogs many times. Sometimes I quickly copy it before posting in case that is going to happen. :) I am so sorry to hear about your brain cancer. My brother has brain cancer too. I will definitely pray for you. You are so kind to leave these beautiful words about my new show. Please feel free to keep in touch here or by email: I'd love to send you a blessed Miraculous Medal that I will touch to the relic I wear that Blessed Mother gave me (a blessed Miraculous Medal). Let me know. Take good care of yourself and keep leaning on Our Lord who will give you much strength and grace. May God bless you in great abundance! XO

    2. Thank you so much. Your kindness and prayers are so uplifting to me. I don't have much family moral support. I do have my husband and 2 boys, so I am blessed. Nice to have support from other women. I'm not good with keeping up with the blog comments. I'm so unsavy tech wise. lol. Thank you for everything. I'll try to stop by here often bc I love your page. It's marked in my favs now. <3 I am so sorry about your brother. I don't know what the rise in brain cancer is, but they really need to do major research on it. I will keep you all in my prayers.

    3. It is so good to hear from you, "Shimmer 'N Faith." You are so sweet to express such kind words. Please feel free to keep in touch, but no worries if you cannot. Take good care of yourself and be assured of my prayers. May God continue to bless you!
      God bless and hugs,
