Look for regular columns by local Catholics Jean Briese and Sherry Boas on www.CatholicMom.com.

If you’ve never directed your mouse and keyboard to CatholicMom.com, or it’s been while since your last visit, now might be the time to go. And the reason is not just because Mother’s Day is around the corner. It’s also because you’ll also find two local voices among its newest.

Sherry Boas, who avid Catholic Sun readers might recognize as the author of “The Lily Trilogy” and the “Rosary Meditations for Moms,” joined in April.

Jean Briese, a Cave Creek Catholic mother and grandmother plus children’s catechist who is also involved with her parish’s women’s group, joined in March. Be on the lookout for their regular columns.

Their columns so far:

  • The Mystery of Motherhood
  • The Little Lamb’s Prayer
  • Chaos on Mount Calvary

Briese will contribute monthly. I couldn’t tell for sure a frequency for Boas, but I would think at least monthly. Their profile pages (linked from their names above) also link to their personal pages so you can stay in touch with them more regularly.

In our work through the diocesan Communications Office, at least one of us, if not more, has had the opportunity to speak to both of these Catholic writers. They have a conversational tone and appear very gentle, yet very devout in living their faith. So I think that devout Catholics at all stages of their faith journey will be able to gain some insight into motherhood and the Church from them.

Check them out and let us know what you think.
