If you are plugged into the online Catholic world, then you’ve likely heard of Lisa Hendey. She’s the podcasting, blogging, webmastering, book-authoring Catholic Mom that everybody loves. I’ve only ever heard kind, awesome things about Lisa. And last year, I actually got to meet her in person where we were both presenters at the Catholic New Media Celebration. She’s a very cool gal and is accomplishing so many great things. And I know she is an inspiration to many other moms when they see her ability to fully embrace motherhood - both in the home and professionally.

Much of Lisa’s work falls under the grander effort of CatholicMom.com. But CatholicMom.com is not just Lisa Hendey.  She’s managed to build a team of outstanding contributors and offers a smorgasbord of extensive resources. It’s got something for everyone, but it’s especially geared towards some of the most special people among us: Moms.

About CatholicMom.com: We celebrate all things Faith, Family, and Fun from a Catholic perspective.  Enjoy fresh perspectives from our wonderful columnists and contributors.  Read the latest selections from our Book Club.  Check out great tunes from an array of talented Catholic musicians.  Help your child make the most of the Liturgy of the Word with our Sunday Gospel activities.  Listen to our weekly Catholic Moments Podcast for interviews with special people doing extraordinary things to live out our Catholic faith and share it with others.

I encourage every Catholic mom to get plugged in to CatholicMom.com. It just makes good sense really. It utilizes just about every aspect of new media and successfully connects with a very important niche within the Catholic community.

Additionally, you can now get Lisa’s new book, The Handbook for Catholic Moms: Nurturing Your Heart, Mind, Body and Soul.  I’ve got a copy next to my bed waiting to be read at the next chance I get.  I’ll be reviewing it over on Fallible Blogma once I finish it soon. Yes, I realize I’m not a Catholic Mom. But we Catholic dads need our heart, mind, body and soul nurtured, too. And I’m sure it will have some great insights for me. I can’t wait to read it!

Catholics in New Media is a weekly series highlighting something particularly awesome going on in the Catholic world of new media.
