When Saints Are Your Girlfriends You're Never Alone! PDF Print E-mail

Girlfriends cover smWith wit and wisdom, popular Catholic talk show host Teresa Tomeo shares personal stories about saints—both her "girlfriend" saints, as well as several male saints. She shows us that the saints are alive and well in heaven and are always ready to listen to us and intercede on our behalf. As she relates how these heroes of the faith have worked in her own life, we are encouraged to go to the saints with our own needs. They are our friends and will never betray us or "unfriend" us! Among the saints Teresa shares about are the Blessed Mother, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, St. Teresa of Avila, and St. John Paul II.

God's Bucket List: Heaven's Surefire Way to Happiness in This Life and Beyond PDF Print E-mail



“Tackle a To-Do List that’s Simply Divine.”

Scripture tells us only God knows the desires of our hearts. It was, after all, God who placed them there because they are designed to lead us to His will for our lives. Why, then, is it so challenging at times to figure out if we are on the right track when it comes to what we believe we want or need? God's Bucket List: Heaven's Surefire Way to Happiness in This Life and Beyond examines what God wants for each of us: mercy, fruitfulness, fellowship, and peace, just to name a few, and explains what the Christian faith teaches about these gifts and how we can begin to achieve and cross out, one by one, the items on that heavenly list. God's Bucket List, published by Random House/Image Books, is available in hardcover from booksellers nationwide and in Kindle and Nook formats.  Read an excerpt from God's Bucket List HERE!

Extreme Makeover: Women Transformed by Christ, Not Conformed to the Culture PDF Print E-mail

Extreme MakeoverA former television news reporter, Tomeo pulls together the latest research on social behavior and trends to demonstrate that women are harming themselves and their chances for true happiness by adopting the thoroughly modern, sexually liberated lifestyle portrayed in magazines and movies. Packed with not only persuasive statistics but also powerful personal testimonies, Extreme Makeover shows that it is not the slogans of the sexual revolution and the women’s liberation movement that free and dignify women, but the beautiful teachings of the Catholic Church.

Teresa’s book discusses many of the issues that are so controversial to women today:

  • Media Mania and the Feminists Mistake:Common sense tells us that having a choice is not the same as making a good choice. When it comes to having an abortion choice has little to do with it.” (Extreme Makeover, p. 52)
  • The Abortion Distortion:Put quite simply, if jumping from bed to bed and engaging in all kinds of sexual experimentation is so wonderfully grand,  so ultimately fulfilling, and so freeing, why is there so much misery and pain attached to it?” (Extreme Makeover, p. 74)
  • Free Sex and the Contraception Deception: "Truth is truth and it cannot be suppressed. Whether we are talking abortion, contraception, or embryonic stem cell research, the Church is proven right over and over again.  The world may not want to see it or admit it, but it is important for us to be able to step back and connect the dots." (Extreme Makeover, p. 160)


    So what are women steeped in the Hollywood and Cosmo girl version of reality to do? Undergo Tomeo’s Extreme Makeover! With the help of this book, they can shed the toxic messages that objectify and enslave them and embrace the truth about being a beloved daughter of God.

    Noise: How our media-saturated culture dominates lives and dismantles families PDF Print E-mail


    Noise_coverThe most dominant force in the lives of almost all Americans is the media—the Internet, TV, radio, blackberries, ipods. The list goes on and on. Although incredibly intoxicating, the media all too often distracts us from that which is most important, and in many instances, actually fights against our good and noble goals in life.


    As parents, educators, and consumers of the media, we have to get our media usage—and that of our families—under control. Otherwise, the media will control us, if it isn’t doing so already.  Teresa Tomeo, a veteran broadcast journalist in both the Catholic and secular markets, makes a compelling and irrefutable case about the dangers of our dominant media culture—and the adjoining liberalism and immorality that comes with it in her book Noise: How Our Media Saturated Culture Dominiates Lives and Dismantles Families.


    Teresa Tomeo gives a sobering analysis of each of the nine dominant forms of media, and she reveals how they are rapidly dismantling families and destroying lives.


    You will Learn:

    • The nine dominant forms of media, and how each can negatively impact our lives
    • What parents can do to protect their children—and themselves—from the dangers of media saturation
    • The effects of TV on children and young adults, and the proper limits parents should put in place
    • How to monitor the lyrics of your teens’ favorite music groups
    • How biased the media really are, and how to sift through the propaganda
    • How to navigate your family through the minefield of media saturation
