Reviews and Interviews
On the Nightstand: The Gift of Invitation
A review by Catholic author, Melanie Rigney
The tug at my friend Allison Gingras’ heart to put together a series of guided journals for women began more than two years ago (and I have the emails to prove that!). It wasn’t like Allison didn’t already have plenty on her plate, with her family; her blog, Reconciled to You, and podcast, A Seeking Heart; and her work with WINE: Women in the New Evangelization.
But you may notice a commonality in Allison’s ministries: she has a call to bring women closer to the Lord and to help them believe in His love. It’s just so fun to hold in my hands the first fruits of that mission the Lord had placed on her heart.
The Gift of Invitation: 7 Ways Jesus Invites You to a Life of Grace has seven meaty chapters, each with prayers, reflections, Scripture for study, and what I think is going to be my favorite part, an invitation to share.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE JOURNALS FOR CATHOLIC WOMEN (A REVIEW)
from Limes and Lunges (Caitlyn Anderson)
Let me start by sharing that my husband is a very patient man when it comes to my love for ordering Catholic books! I have something new showing up in pretty Amazon packaging at least once a month, if not more. He didn’t even bat an eye when my Stay Connected journal showed up this past week!
I’ll admit, I had kinda already read the journal before it was available in print. I had the privilege of getting a sneak peak to do a promotional video for Catholics Online. But that should say something for how much I loved it! I just HAD to have it in fancy print.
THERE ARE CURRENTLY THREE BOOKS IN THE STAY CONNECTED JOURNALS FOR CATHOLIC WOMEN SERIES:
- The Gift of Invitation: 7 Ways That Jesus Invites You to a Life of Grace by Allison Gingras
- Exploring the Catholic Classics: How Spiritual Reading Can Help You Grow in Wisdom by Tiffany Walsh
- Invite the Holy Spirit into Your Life: Growing in Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control by Deanna G. Bartalini
