Peggy Eastman of the Catholic Daughters of America magazine SHARE writes:
This book provides a refreshing, honest affirmation of the special gifts of Catholic women in a breezy conversational style that enhances the message. At its heart, this book is a joyful look at what it means to be feminine, faith-filled and both.
In an era when there is still some confusion about women’s roles and about gender equality, Gohn sets the record straight, writing “Men and women, while being distinct, are equal in the eyes of God. For women who have been made to feel inferior or who have suffered unjustly at the hands of others because of their femininity, this is very good news.”
This book is divided into three parts: The Blessed Dignity of Women; The Beautiful Gifts of Women; and The Bodacious Mission of Women. In the last section, the author delivers an unabashed love letter to Catholic womanhood, encouraging women to live fully as God’s beloved. Here are two summary sentences: “Femininity in its fullness, naturally and supernaturally, in body and soul, is a gift of God to you to bring you into a relationship with him and with other people. It is God’s plan for you.”
When I saw the title and cover of this book, I feared it would be corny or glib. It’s not. Pat Gohn is an engaging, intelligent writer who clearly lives her Catholic faith deeply and longs for others to discover the joy she has found. I was very impressed at how well she was able to convey the truths of the faith with great depth in highly readable language. This is an excellent book to give to a convert who wants to intensify her faith life, a cradle Catholic who needs help understanding the Church’s teachings on women, or to a mom who needs help keeping the faith while managing her work/life balance.
