I’m so excited for you all to read this. This has been a labor of love for over 10 years and it is so good to get it out finally. It started as a girls lunch club for the Catholic high schoolers I taught in California. It was such a hit that the kids were asking me to write a book based on it! Marriage and kids came into play and I didn’t have the time or resources to pursue this dream for a while. A few years ago, I picked up my old lunch club binder off the shelf and knew it was time. I began working on this project again that very instant. I sent a proposal for the book to many publishers, but they all had their reasons for not wanting to publish it. Then my husband said to me, “Why don’t you just publish it yourself? You’re so passionate about this.” So I have but MAN, was it a lot of work (and I’m still working on it to get it publication ready). I feel so blessed that I have this outlet and opportunity and I hope you’ll grow as much from the book as I have.
With great gratitude and sincerity, Theresa.
