We want to help our children to learn, live, and love the faith more deeply.
This week’s guest is children’s book author Claudia Cangilla McAdam. Claudia shares about how she got started writing books for kids and why she began to write faith-based books especially.
One of Claudia’s newest books is The Real Presence, a story that teaches children about the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Claudia discusses how she got the idea for this book and what it was like to work with her illustrator.
Claudia is also author of Louie’s Lent, a beautiful story about how a young boy discerns what he will do to observe Lent. All of Claudia’s works are wonderful resources for parents, teachers, and catechists. You can learn more about Claudia and her work at ClaudiaMcadam.com.

Megan Madden is a homeschooling mother with a passion for writing and speaking on authentic femininity and virtuous womanhood. In 2017, she began graduate studies in marriage and family at the International Theological Institute in Austria. After moving to Kraków, Poland to work with university students, Megan more personally continued her research on the complementarity of man and woman, particularly on the question of what it means to be a woman. She delved into the study of renowned Catholic writers on women such as St. Edith Stein, Gertrude von le Fort, Alice von Hildebrand, St. John Paul II, and St. Teresa of Avila.
The results were the development of Megan’s online ministry A Mother’s Lace, as well as speaking opportunities and her book with Ascension: Mary, Teach Me to Be Your Daughter.
Megan lives outside of Oxford, England with her husband, who is a lecturer in theology, and their five children.
