“Why Reading Matters for Women”
“Why Reading Matters for Women”
Why Reading Matters for Women by WRM founder Marcie Stokman, BSN, MA. Many women understand the value of quality literature for their children’s moral growth, yet they lack a seriousness when it comes to the education of their own hearts. What does a woman’s commitment to her own growth have to do with Pope John Paul’s prophetic charge, “Women will increasingly play a part in the solution of the serious problems of the future…?" Through personal stories and gentle humor, women will be encouraged to see their pivotal cultural responsibility and be encouraged to read more and read well. Hear how Well-Read Mom book clubs began, starting from the desire of a few moms who wanted to read works from the Catholic and Western Tradition.
