This week is our one-year anniversary of launching Days of Deepening Friendship with a new emphasis: “for women growing wiser.” We have tried to speak to issues that are of particular interest to women at midlife and onward—or, as we hear it put a lot these days—women in the second half of life. We hope to touch upon matters of the spirit, such as prayer, as well as practical matters, such as renegotiating relationships with adult children.
We are revving up for another year of ministry, and we’d like your feedback. Here are my questions for you.
- Which topics this past year were especially relevant to you?
- Which topics do you suggest we add for the coming year?
- Are there Loyola Press authors you’d like to know better? I’m happy to interview authors as they are available to do so, and then post those videos on the DDF site.
- Are there other features you’d like to see more often, such as author videos, book reviews, or posts from other bloggers?
We will begin the year—that is, September and October—by exploring the treasury of wisdom from our long history of women mystics and saints, from Julian of Norwich to Dorothy Day. I’m sure they will give us plenty to think about. Also, I expect that they will inspire us to more frequent prayer and more fervent living!
Peace to you,
Vinita and the DDF team
