Motherhood Matters

Hailed as thought-provoking, inspirational passionate and honest, Motherhood Matters by Dorothy Pilarski is a straight-talking guide for Catholic mothers trying to cope in today’s hectic world.

Pilarski, a mother of two teenagers, has lovingly compiled a personal collection of touching stories, letters, prayers and quotes that she has been sharing with her Mother’s Group for many years. TV talk show host Colleen Hammond calls the finished product “thought provoking and “jam-packed with inspiration.”

Pilarski tackles a breath-taking range of topics: working moms, child-rearing, faith, marriage, attending Mass, public morality, holiday celebrations, education, friendship and such important Catholic themes as faith, hope and charity. The finished product is a book full of courage, wit and grace that author Lisa Hendey calls a “terrific compilation of writings about the triumphs and tragedies of being a mother in today’s world.”
