This special lady helped Deacon Tom get started with New Evangelization on the web; she rejoins Tom and Dee on this episode of Catholic Vitamin X — our 13th eXtra show. LISA HENDEY is the now a successful speaker, author and columnist. Even if you’re read her books — even if you’ve listened to her speak at a conference, join us and learn even more about this dear friend. (Dcn Tom especially appreciates Lisa cause she told Dee to kiss her husband 🙂 — you’ll even hear that on this episode if you listen carefully.
Not only did Lisa successfully found one of the most popular g0-to-sites for Catholic women (www.catholicmom.com) — she started writing books (A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms: 52 Companions for Your Heart, Mind, Body and Soul, The Handbook for Catholic Moms: Nurturing Your Heart, Mind, Body and Soul, and others). Listen to the interview to hear Lisa share about starting her now very popular books for young Catholic readers (The Chime Traveler Series).
All the above shared – our main reason for this visit with Lisa was to have her share about the wonderful work that the humanitarian organization called UNBOUND is doing throughout the world. Unbound is one of the apostolates that Lisa is committed to — and she recently took at trip to the Philippines to see the work of Unbound in action — at recipient level. Deacon Tom and Dee have been sponsors for young and old folks through Unbound for over a decade — and we endorse its work heartily.
If you’d like more information or if you feel called to sponsor a young child, a seminarian or an elder – please go to www.unbound.org or call at the 800-875-6564 toll free number.
Two other thank-yous on this show: First — dear friend MARIANNA BARTHOLOMEW — our award winning journalist did a Missionary Moment on Izzy Dolls. What a neat/easy way to bring smiles to those who need a smile. Marianna is found at www.finerfields.blogspot.com . She also has begun a beautifu 501(c)3 non-profit for helping a missionary priest and the poor in the Vizag Diocese in India. If you’d like to look at what Marianna and a small cadre of helpers are doing, please go to either of these two websites: www.holyfamilyrelief.weebly.com (their general and more comprehensive site), and www.hfrtuitionproject.weebly.com (their website for tuition assistance to keep young children from exploitation and abuse. Blessings to Marianna and all involved.
The other thank you goes to long-time friend JUSTIN STROH who has been a contributor to evangelization for decades. He’s also a composer, musician and singer. Active on a lot of the new media portals – the best place to start connection with Justin is at his blog site: justin-stroh.blogspot.com
