The Grace of YES!

Her name is Fiat.
That cute little goldfish--her name is Fiat.

Fiat, of course, is Latin for let it be done. In Lisa Hendey's brand-new book, The Grace of Yes, Fiat is both the charming little goldfish on the cover as well as the simple yet profound theme guiding readers through the pages of the book. The Grace of Yes explores eight virtues that help us build a habit of generosity.

The goldfish name surfaced (ha! fish pun!) after CatholicMom.com hosted a "Name the Goldfish" contest. The goldfish is essentially just a decoration, I realize, but the community goldfish-naming phenomenon is no mere ornament; the CatholicMom.com clever fish-naming campaign epitomizes the way Lisa--the site's founder-- habitually reaches out to others.

Catholic Alternative to 50 Shades of Grey

I enjoyed speaking with Brian Patrick this morning on Sonrise Morning Show about Catholic alternatives to 50 Shades of Grey. Alternatives that engage and still bring the journey of a lost soul to a Christian close.


In particular I found sharing Philippians 4:8 rather important:


Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.


If you are interested in such a book--one that speaks to the human condition with a Christian tone and resolution--then I invite you to download Elizabeth: A Holy Land Pilgrimage on your Kindle for free if you are an Amazon Prime Member. 


Lisa Hendey gives Elizabeth: A Holy Land Pilgrimage 5 stars and calls it "engrossing" and "rewarding." 


And who doesn't like a free book?
