Pat Gohn, writer, speaker and host of the popular SQPN podcast, "Among Women" presents in her debut book, Blessed, Beautiful and Bodacious: Celebrating the Gift of Catholic Womanhood a new brand of feminism based upon the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary and writings by John Paul II where he coined the phrase "feminine genius." In her brand of feminism, there is no holding back: "The most excellent women, the bodacious women, are women who authentically live their dignity and gifts. They don't keep beauty and blessing to themselves. They lovingly lavish it upon others ... their ability to stretch and serve sends positive ripple effects into the world."Was this review helpful?

I kept writing, "That's me!" or "Me too!" in the margins while reading. Pat's candid sharing of her life experience and how she eventually reconciled it through a growing knowledge and devotion to Mary mirrored my own life.
Blessed, Beautiful and Bodacious affirms the choices I made for my children back when I was a young mother. It affirms the path I take today, growing in faith and learning how to give away all the love I receive from my God within. Pat's journey was my journey and I believe it may be yours, too. It's a journey, and a book, that I can heartily recommend.
