By Dawn’s Early Light: My labor of love for Military Women

My prayerbook for military women is now available! I feel very blessed that my dear friend Father Andrew Apostololi gave me some words of endorsement in his last days which you will see on the back cover of the book. This book is not simply a prayerbook, but a compilation of stories of the brave military women whom I have interviewed who juggle many endless, special, and often heartbreaking demands placed on military families – – demands not addressed in most prayer books. And, like so many other military wives, they’ve got to bear these burdens alone, and sometimes even silently.  I wanted to shine a light on these women and tell the world of their heroism. I believe that my book, By Dawns Early Light shines the healing light of Christ on that heroism, giving honor and praise to the women and to God of course, as with Him they fulfill the duties and experience the joys of the noblest of all the vocations: that of a military woman!

I have partnered with Sophia Institute Press to create this unique prayer book for Catholic military wives. I believe that it is a book for all Catholics, especially those who want to learn more about the unique lives of Catholic military women who’s heroism doesn’t remain on the battlefield, but is woven into the fabric of their lives.

You can see more here at my website: as well as opportunities to purchase this book for yourself or a loved one.

Unveiling my UPCOMING book!

I am very excited to announce my new upcoming book for military women and those women associated with the military in some way, as well as for those who would like to know more about their lives…

For all women associated with the military!

Book Description: This book is for every woman associated with the military, whether on land, on sea, or in the air and for all those at home who are waiting for their loved one to return or who are living on military bases, or struggling with the myriad of demands connected with military life.

Catholic military women are very special “Soul Sisters.” There s a certain military pride shared amongst them they are in solidarity in a common goal to defend human life, to fight injustice, to protect their country, and support their military husbands, brothers, sons, daughters, cousins, nieces and nephews [or “their military family”]. They have heroically placed their lives on the line on battlefields, as well as in battling military issues on the home front too.

Best-selling and award-winning author Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, an honorary lifetime member of the Military Council for Catholic Women (MCCW) shines a light on these gallant, heroic women who carry on with great faith, hope, humility, and love and whose heroism doesn’t remain on the battlefield, but is woven into the very fabric of their lives.

Traditional and original prayers, as well as teachings and inspiration from Jesus, Mary, and the Saints are woven throughout the entire book to give a powerful shot in the arm and to uplift spirits. This book will surely speak to the hearts of military mothers, wives, and women who are serving or have served in the military. It will also be a source of prayer and inspiration for anyone connected to the military the patriotic, and for anyone who would like to learn more about these courageous military women.

Due out on February 22, 2018. You can pre-order your copy today by clicking here!
