Happy Mamas – An Ode to Mothers
Based on Kathleen’s most recent book, Happy Mamas
Similar to the general presentation above, Kathleen explores the link between happiness and motherhood, affirms her listeners as women of God who are called to be mirrors of grace and goodness and light by MOTHERING the holy in their children, in one another, and in the world.
Story as Prayer
Both Story and Prayer stem from a radical response to life. Both Story and Prayer involve a “long, loving look at the real.” Both Story and Prayer encourage us to see what Elizabeth Barrett Browning said, “All of earth is crammed with Heaven.” Both Story and Prayer feed our hearts and souls with wonder and awe, truth and beauty, grace and goodness, kindness and compassion.
Kathleen explores how sharing GOOD stories with children can deepen their love of the Lord and feed their souls with hope and joy. She invites her audience to see the links between GOOD stories and an active prayer life and thus discover how we can all be little “words of God, who will one day join together to spell out His glory.”
In His Footsteps
Based on The Sandal Artist – Winner of the Bock Book Award for fostering Franciscan Values
What better way to teach your children how to walk in Jesus’ sandals than with a story? In this presentation Kathleen invites her audience to explore how good stories can broaden our point of view, help us to walk a mile in another’s moccasins, see the world through another’s eyes, feel it with another’s heart, see the Christ in another, and thus find grace and beauty in unexpected places.
