Speaking of Called & Gifted alumni, I'd like to bring a new book and author to your attention:
Ginny Moyer, who is married to Scott, our Bay area Called & Gifted team leader and Director of Adult Faith Formation at wonderful St. Dominic's Church in San Francisco, has her first book in print and it looks wonderful.
It is titled "Mary and Me: Catholic Women Reflect on the Mother of God." It is a well-written, inspiring read that draws upon the experiences of many contemporary women, Catholic or not, who have developed a devotion to Mary.
As Ginny points out in her forward, it was going through the Called & Gifted process that clarified her call to write. (And I should add, she also met Scott, her future husband through the C & G. We are a full service discernment process!)
(As I like to playfully point out to trainee teachers, teaching the C & G has unexpected side benefits. Many of our single teachers soon meet their future spouses, seminarians become pastors, and priests become bishops after teaching with us. Actually, only one priest teacher has been made a Bishop so far and all the seminarians and priest in training groan at the very thought of a bishopric, so guess it isn't much of an incentive - but the marriage possibility is very popular.)
Be sure and check out Ginny's book.
