Mary Lou Rosien's Catholic Family Boot Camp
is a 30-day-devotional intended to build virtue within the family unit. The virtues developed include: hope, love, justice, prudence, temperance, fortitude and faith. Daily Scripture readings and suggested tasks make the devotional easy to follow. There is no right or wrong day or time to start the boot camp-the important thing is to start! Mary Lou invites all "boot campers" to join her at www.CatholicFamilyBootcamp.com to ask questions, share ideas and just have fun! Praise for Catholic Family Boot Camp:
As a former Air Force pilot, I've been to boot camp, specifically at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. That was the toughest six weeks of my life! Conquering boot camp was one of my greatest achievements. I love that my friend Mary Lou has titled this 30-day-family devotional "Catholic Family Boot Camp."
Her program is grounded in solid Catholic principles and virtues. She sets the bar high but gives families plenty of motivation and encouragement to persevere. Mary Lou is organized, resourceful and creative. More importantly, she is grounded in her Catholic faith. She perfectly plays the role of the sensitive drill sergeant by setting high standards, providing the right tools for the job, and instilling confidence that success can be achieved. Mary Lou doesn't yell, humiliate or get in your face but generously shares her wisdom and experience in cultivating a holy family.

Catholic Family Boot Camp is a refreshing, funny and often poignant look at ways ordinary families like yours and mine can work as a team to grow in holiness through the practice of the Seven Virtues. Rosien's penchant for sharing the good, the bad and the ugly of family life had me laughing and crying in recognition both of my own foibles and the surprising ways of God.
