7 Quick Takes Friday – New Saints, Book Launch, Birthdays

7_quick_takes_sm1Please join me and other Catholic bloggers at Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday.

1. Saint John Paul II and Saint John XXIII
Two new saints were proclaimed by the Church on Divine Mercy Sunday. It was a momentous occasion for many reasons, not the least of which two living popes were present (Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict).
Saints John Paul II and John XXIII, pray for us.

2. Book Launch!
My book launch was fun and thanks to all who came out to pick up a signed copy! See more photos from my Wednesday post.

3. My Baby Turns 15!!
This weekend, my youngest son turns 15. We had an interesting conversation when we were watching home movies the other day.

Him: “Wow. Did you get smaller? You were a lot taller back then.”

Me: “Uh, no, I wasn’t. You were just a LOT shorter!!

4. A Subtle Grace #1 (Fourth Week)
A Subtle Grace is in its fourth week of being #1 in Religious Drama on Amazon Kindle. It dropped to #2 a few times, but for the most part, it’s been #1!! I’m still humbled by the fact that so many Kindle users are downloading and reading my books. ASG Bestseller Ap30
