"My Confirmation Book"

My book for Confirmands and their family has just released:
 "My Confirmation Book."

Book description:  Part keepsake, part teaching book, this small volume is filled with inspiration, encouragement, and reflections to ponder for 4th graders and up. Through simple text, it explains the privileges and responsibilities imparted through the sacrament of Confirmation. Compelling stories about saints and children their own age will help kids become more familiar with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and learn how the gifts can be active in their own lives. The apostolic mission of a confirmed Catholic is emphasized and readers are reminded that the sacrament of Confirmation is exciting—the same Holy Spirit who appeared to the apostles and the Blessed Mother at Pentecost is the one who will come to them when they are confirmed.

Wonderful endorsements: 
"Too often we whisk our youth through the sacrament without a clear understanding of what's happening. That's tragic, because a grace misunderstood is easily unappreciated, and a grace unappreciated is easily lost. My Confirmation Book empowers young people to receive the Holy Spirit in a way that's active, personal, willing, and enduring. Highly recommended."~Mike Aquilina, co-host of The Lamb's Supper on EWTN, and Executive Vice-President of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology

My Confirmation Book is the perfect gift for any Confirmand. Full of inspiration and wisdom, each chapter poses a thought-provoking scenario to help bring the various gifts of the Holy Spirit to life. Donna-Marie’s book will be my present of choice for the special teens in my life preparing to receive this beautiful sacrament.” ~Lisa M. Hendey, Founder of and author of A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms
 “A wonderful tool for parents, religious education leaders, and all who are concerned about raising up strong young Catholics – Catholics who will be able to boldly and joyfully proclaim their faith and engage a culture so in need of God.” ~Teresa Tomeo, Catholic syndicated talk show host, Ave Maria Radio

Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle is an award-winning author and the EWTN television host of “Everyday Blessings for Catholic Moms.” A Catholic wife and mother of five, she was noted as one of the Top Ten Most Fascinating Catholics in 2009 by Faith & Family Live and enjoyed a decade-long friendship with Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

My book is available from my website. It will be autographed and sent along with a blessed Miraculous Medal:

God bless you and yours!
