The Genius of Women and the Mission of Men: How Authentic Feminism Can Rebuild a Culture of Life
Learn about Saint John Paul II's beautiful teaching of how to dispel the myths of self-sufficiency at the heart of radical feminism and a masculinity that forgets its vocation to protect and provide. Dorinda will share her experience in pro-life law and policy and share the Church's resources that help us embrace the truth of who men and women were created to be to themselves and each other in our roles as parents, spouses, workers and advocates for life.
As a wife and mother, Dorinda Bordlee is an advocate for human rights from the beginning of life to the end. She is chief counsel of the Bioethics Defense Fund, a pro-life public interest legal organization.

Mary's Way: The Power of Entrusting Your Child to God
How do you walk with your children during times of struggle and crisis? Do you feel as if nothing you do will be enough?Where do you find peace? Her heartfelt book Mary’s Way: The Power of Entrusting Your Child to God is for moms who struggle to guide children through the various stages of their lives. Catholic speaker and teacher Judy Landrieu Klein shows how her own crisis of faith helped her release her children to the care of the Blessed Mother. As Klein focused on her devotion to the Blessed Mother, her life and faith were transformed. Klein shows you how to find the love, joy, and peace of Our Lord as you surrender your will to Him.
