Danielle Bean's Momnipotent: An Incomplete and Slightly Quirky Review ;)
A few months ago, I was vaguely aware that my online friend Danielle Bean had a new book being published about being a mom. Honestly, I didn't really click any of the links about it. One day, I got an e-mail from a local friend who had read a sample of Momnipotent online, and was amazed to discover (as was I!) that I was mentioned in this sample.
Naturally, I had to go find and read it for myself (click here to read the excerpt), and was delighted to discover that Danielle had taken a concept that I apparently helped introduce to the Catholic homeschool world, that of Age Quod Agis (which means "do what you are doing"), and run with it in a really beautiful and helpful way.
The really funny part for me is that reading that excerpt from her book was exactly what *I* needed to read at the time - both to be reminded of the concept of Age Quod Agis and the gist of what she was drawing out of it. The experience made me think that maybe sometimes God does put something out there with your name on it just so that *you* will pay attention. ;)
I'm looking forward to reading the whole thing soon.
