Endorsements for Through the Year With Mary: 365 Reflections

I'm so grateful for these beautiful endorsements.  Many thanks to Jennifer Fulwiler, David Mills, Lisa Hendey and Josephine Nobisso.


"Karen Edmisten has put together a collection of reflections that is sure to draw anyone closer to the Blessed Mother. Each day's quote is powerful enough to ponder for hours, yet brief enough to read amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life. Through this collection we deepen our understanding of Mary, and perhaps even ourselves."

-- Jennifer Fulwiler, Conversion

"A moving collection of insights into the Blessed Virgin, some of which stopped me in my tracks and made me say 'Oh, yes, that’s it.'  

Through the Year With Mary not only helped me know the Mother of our Lord better, but to feel her love more intensely."

-- David Mills, Deputy Editor of First Things and author of Discovering Mary.


"I've seen many books on Our Blessed Mother, but Through the Year with Mary: 365 Reflections now holds a special place in my heart. By compiling this versatile treasury of priceless Marian quotes and sharing her own personal reflections, talented author Karen Edmisten has created a resource that will keep me coming back day after day for inspiration. A special thanks to Karen for giving new words to my longstanding love for Mary and for drawing me closer to Jesus through His mother and my favorite intercessor. This book belongs in every Catholic home, classroom, parish and library."

-- Lisa M. Hendey, founder and editor of and author of The Handbook for Catholic Moms

"Fiat! Fiat! Fiat! With insight and reverence, Karen Edmisten crafts heartfelt and profound words that reveal the essence of the words of others, affording the reader an accessible relationship of response to Mary, Mother of The Word."

-- Josephine Nobisso, author of The Weight of a Mass, Take It to the Queen, and Saint Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe

And I'm equally grateful for these reviews:

  2. Karen, been meaning to tell you I received a copy of your beautiful new book through your publisher even without requesting it so I'm thrilled! Hoping to maybe have another Marian-themed radio show in May. I'll let you know what transpires and if we can have you on again.

  3. Thanks, Roxane -- I hope you enjoy it, and I'd love to talk with you again.
