Old enemies and new friends accompany Wally, Moriel, Haden, and Peep in their efforts to incorporate Abidanian life into Mortanian civilization. When a dark malice prowls Mortania intent on destroying the Abidanian culture from within, can Waljan maintain faith in himself and all he has known in the struggle to root out evil?

Sydney and Calvin Have a Baby


After her dream date turns tragic, geeky writing prodigy Sydney Camden just wants to retreat into the safe escape of her stories. She certainly wants nothing to do with Calvin, an annoyingly cute British ex-pat who also happens to be her rapist’s cousin. But perhaps the Divine Author is writing her a much different love story than she expected….

Sydney and Calvin Have a Baby is a smart, funny coming-of-age story that doesn’t flinch from the very real issues confronting teens today, but draws on Catholic wisdom to weave a story in which hope triumphs over despair, forgiveness vanquishes sin, and a culture of life triumphs over death.

Invite the Holy Spirit into Your Life: Growing in Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control

I Can Be Happy, Too (hardcover)

It isn’t always easy
to control my feelings,
but as long as I can help it,
I choose to be happy!

In simple rhyme accompanied by Scripture verses and sweet, expressive illustrations, I Can Be Happy, Too teaches children that while we can’t control the bad things that happen to us, we can control how we respond to disappointment and adversity.

The Gift of Birth: Discerning God’s Presence During Childbirth (softcover)


Is the process of giving birth a medical problem to be solved, a hurdle to be overcome on the way to motherhood . . . or is it something more? Could it be, as Susan Windley-Daoust proposes, that giving birth is a gift from God, laden with signs that speak to women about their identity, their calling, and their destiny?

If so, then learning to read those embodied signs during pregnancy and labor could transform the way women experience childbirth. These signs reveal that God is not only powerfully present in the whole birthing process, but desires to actively work with women to bring forth new life.
