Minnesota Catholic Home Education Conference and Curriculum Fair

Come to the biggest and best Catholic homeschooling conference in the Midwest (and one of the top conferences in the nation). Friday May 29, 2015 is the Used Curriculum Fair. On Saturday, May 30, I’ll be giving two talks:

  • Homeschooling Help from St. Therese
  • Working with Your Child’s Temperament

Please stop by the table of my publishing company, Four Waters Press. Chat, pick up your free temperament quiz, and get signed copies of Trusting God with St. Therese and the brand new A Spiritual Growth Plan for Your Choleric Child.

Register for the conference here.


Radio and podcast interviews, Spring 2015

A Seeking Heart with Allison Gingras featured Trusting God with St. Therese all week, with an interview on Thursday. April 7-10.

Tony Agnesi interviewed me on his Finding God’s Grace radio show in February.


In March I spoke at the online Catholic Conference for Moms. The video is no longer available for sale, but I hope to offer it to you in some form in the future.

List of online events and contests for Trusting God with St. Therese

Look for more details on each of these as their dates come nearer. I will post each on my regular blog page, here, and on the FaceBook page of Four Waters Press, my publishing company.

Everyone who purchases either edition by the official launch date, August 6 at 12 A.M., is invited to a virtual launch party. I will be holding a Google Hangout. You can ask me questions about my life, my writing process, St. Therese, the book, trust, or anything else (within reason!). I will announce the date and time soon. Anyone who has received a review copy is also welcome to join us. Please email me the order number from your Amazon receipt to crossini4774 at comcast dot net, with the subject line “Hangout.”

1 person who gives an honest review on Amazon, Goodreads, or Barnes and Noble will receive a signed print copy of my next work, A Spiritual Growth Plan for Your Choleric Child. I will do a random drawing including everyone who gives an honest review (even if it’s negative). Reviews must be submitted to Amazon by September 8 at 12 A.M. Winner: Theresa George.

Winner: Cheryl Wills. There will also be at least one more print copy given away during the tour. Winner: Dean Pawlowski.

Buy 5 print copies for your book club, faith sharing group, etc. and receive an extra signed copy for yourself. This promotion is ongoing and requires you to purchase directly from me. Please email me if you are interested.
