These reflections and tips are great to use in a group setting. Sign up here —> WINE Emails
2. ORDER THE BOOK BUNDLE
Why order through the online WINE shop? Simple. WINE is unique in that it is the only place you can or the accompanying journal… and your purchase through the WINE shop supports all the wonderful work of WINE, a non-profit ministry. Best of all, buy them as a bundle and save money! (Who doesn’t like a good sale?)
A little about this great book: When Women Pray: Eleven Catholic Women on the Power of Prayer, edited by Kathleen Beckman, is a book that will inspire a new outpouring of prayer for healing and holiness. This timely work proclaims the joy of prayer and wealth of grace entrusted to praying women. Through poignant personal stories and Church teaching, eleven Catholic women magnify the Marian vocation of living as contemplatives in action.
**Note: You WILL definitely want to purchase the bundle! The accompanying journal is perfect for participants in Read Between the WINES book groups as well as for people reading the book on their own. The journal is a step-by-step guide that provides:
- space for personal reflection and an area to answer the Ponder, Practice, Pray questions
- specific prayer (and explanation of that prayer) that accompanies the theme of each chapter
- suggested weekly prayer commitment to help you form the habit of prayer
- comment and discussion question about the saint featured on the “Feminine Wisdom” page
- coloring page to help you enter into a sacred space of images, colors, and perhaps silence
