Go, St. Teresa!
 
"Don't imagine that, if you had a great deal of time, you would spend more of it in prayer. Get rid of that idea; it is no hindrance to prayer to spend your time well." ~St. Teresa of Ávila.

The Nike motto is "Just do it." Maybe that should apply to our spiritual life, a life of charitable works, more than to a life of chasing sports balls around. Make time for prayer.

Our Lord made time, not only to pray, but to teach the disciples how to pray (as He does in Sunday's Gospel), and the importance of prayer.

Update on Biblezon (the Catholic tablet). I just talked to Mosongo Osong, the creator of the device. The bookstore will be live in September. Right now, we and some other indie members of CWG are the ONLY authors he is working with. He will be at the CMN/CWG conference talking to publishers, but this is a great opportunity.

So, if you haven't joined us, please do! We'll be getting a 70% royalty, I believe, without having to be exclusive. I have books on my list so far from +Virginia Lieto +Rich Maffeo +Jean Heimann +Jeannie Ewing +Melanie Jean Juneau +Benita J. Prins +Theresa Linden +Tom McDonough +Bob Kurland +Michael Seagriff +Gil Michelini  and +Carmela Martino . I am sending an updated list in the next week. For those of you who just asked to be added, I need a link to each book, one-paragraph description, price, genre, any awards you've gotten, and your email. Anyone else who wants to join us, now is the time! This could be a great opportunity to reach a new audience. Email me at crossini4774 at comcast dot net.

Some of you will remember we talked about getting our books on the Catholic Tablet (not the newspaper). I had not heard back from the owner of the Tablet for a long time, but I have a call with him on Friday morning. We are negotiating a 70% royalty for sales through the Catholic Tablet. They will have a book store with Catholic books only. If you did not notify me last year that you wanted your book(s) included and you'd like to include them now, please comment here. Each person will be responsible for signing and keeping the contract with them. If we need to have our books in epub format (I will check on this on Friday), I can make that conversion for you for $5. Of course, if you are KDP exclusive, you can't do this.

Be like Elijah--active AND contemplative.
In the past week we’ve celebrated two major Carmelite feasts: Our Lady of Mt. Carmel (July 16) and the prophet Elijah (July 20). These two great saints in different ways exemplify what…

Story
Tagline
Carmelite spirituality, contemplative kids.
Introduction
I am a Catholic wife and mother of four boys, dedicated to prayer and to teaching my children to pray. I am the author of Trusting God with St. Therese, A Spiritual Growth Plan for Your Choleric Child, and Is Centering Prayer Catholic? I developed my own homeschooling method to foster a contemplative lifestyle. I blog on that and Carmelite spirituality for adults at Contemplative Homeschool. I also own the Google+ Community Indie Catholic Authors.

I wrote the e-book Five Lessons from the Carmelite Saints That Will Change Your Life. You can download it free for your Kindle or Nook.
