Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Wrapped Up is an easy read but contains so much profound Truth. I had never considered that God has given women specific spiritual gifts (besides the obvious nurturing aspects of motherhood),and this book offers a lot of food for thought. Teresa Tomeo and Cheryl Dickow address each of the ten gifts in different voices and from different experiences.

"Cheryl writes from the perspective of a devout Catholic mother of two sons who is fascinated by the Jewish roots of Christianity, particularly the women of the Old Testament. She shares personal experience and her knowledge of the Old Testament matriarchs in a unique perspective of how modern Catholic women can learn from our ancient ancestors in faith.

"Teresa, on the other hand, is a media-savvy talk show host and well-known Catholic personality who travels the world and leads pilgrimages in various holy places. She shows us how a modern Catholic woman can truly find the gift of authentic femininity in our toxic culture.

"Both women share anecdotes of their personal faith journeys and relate them to each of the ten gifts. My favorite chapter was the one on The Gift of Suffering. Both Cheryl and Teresa wrote convincing essays, avoiding cliches and sentimentalism, to show us how suffering can indeed be a gift—not an easy task!

I highly recommend Wrapped Up: God's Ten Gifts for Women and the companion journal to Catholic women in any phase of life or spiritual development."—Peggy Bowes, blogger and author, The Rosary Workout; coauthor, Tending the Temple

"God’s feelings toward women have long been misunderstood—even among Christians. Wrapped Up beautifully clarifies the searing biblical truth that God is the first lover and liberator of all women."—Meg Meeker, M.D., author of the national bestseller,Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: Ten Secrets Every Father Should Know

"In Wrapped Up: God’s Ten Gifts for Women, the authors’ unique voices and perspectives combine beautifully to offer rare gifts to today’s modern woman: inspiration, support, and encouragement. By highlighting our unique feminine gifts and strengths, Wrapped Up encourages women everywhere to recognize how much we have to offer our families and communities in a wounded, broken world. Every woman deserves to ‘unwrap’ a gift like that!"—Danielle Bean, author of Small Steps for Catholic Moms
