Wednesday on Catholic Mom's Cafe plus contests!


Did you see yesterday's show: Kids and the Culture"? Did you like it? Tell me about in the comments below. Also, please tell EWTN by "liking," "sharing," and leaving a comment on their post on their Face book page:

You can also send EWTN an email to "viewer services" and type "Catholic Mom's Cafe" in the subject line since they receive a lot of emails. :) You can send your comment about the show to: EWTN will ultimately decide about continuing the Catholic Mom's Cafe series based on the favorable responses to the show. Thank you in advance for expressing your thoughts to them.

So, there's lots of buzz going on with the launch of my new TV series on EWTN Catholic Mom's Cafe. I am running contests all week during the launch week (after running them all month too). Here's a blog post from yesterday about the contests. Check it out to see the prizes, etc.

To be entered into the contests to win, chocolate, coffee, pampering, lots of books, a cool Williams Sonoma gift card, and more (which are shown in the link above), watch the shows this week. Here's a description of the shows and guests:

What's on the menu today? 

Today's guest is Woodeene Koenig Bricker. We discuss single motherhood. The first show aired this morning at 3:00 AM ET and will air again at 6:30 PM ET tonight.

Here's a little video promo of today's show:

Here's what you need to do to be entered into the cool drawings this week:

1) Watch the shows so you can answer a question from me and be entered.

2) To be entered into the contests, please "like" my face book pages: Catholic Mom's Cafe:

3) To be entered into the  GRAND PRIZE contests, please write a review (can be very short if need be) for Amazon for any of my "Mom" books you have read or are reading, which are listed right below the next sentence. This also helps a great deal to let potential readers of the book to know what others have thought about them.

4) Create a short video of your children doing a good deed (yes, it can be staged to illustrate your point).
