Super Girls

It’s true! I have this book that comes out in just a few days, on the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary! I’m so excited to share Super Girls and Halos: My Companions on the Quest for Truth, Justice, and Heroic Virtue with you.

Fun for me!

It was a fun book to write, something that I’d always wanted to do — examine the lives of some of the heroines of popular culture that I had come to admire, and even emulate at times in my life. My growing faith helped me see some other things in these exciting characters, what Bishop Robert Barron calls the “seeds of the gospel.” These heroic women have human virtues that are good, but the more I thought about it, the more I saw how the lives of saints were also exciting and interesting, and certainly worth emulating.

I bring it all together in this book that explores fictional heroines, real saints, the cardinal virtues, and Our Lady of Guadalupe!

I had a lot of fun doing the research for the book, which was pretty much getting to binge-watch my favorite movies and then talk about them, and then repeat the process with some saints that I think you will love to know more about. Isn’t that a fan’s dream?

Fun for you!

I had so much fun, I want to share it with you. To celebrate the launch of Super Girls and Halos¬†on September 8th, I’m giving away a Wonder Woman plush doll since the very first chapter is about Wonder Woman!

I’m also joining the Nerdy Catholic Tees guys with some truth on a silk screen about the Blessed Mother being the Original Wonder Woman!

Add #ShowYourNerdySide and you’ll be entered to win The Original Wonder Woman t-shirt courtesy of NerdyCatholicTees.com. Check out the Nerdy Guys at NerdyCatholicTees.com for a chance to win a signed copy of my book!
