Thank you for all these resources!

I've written a children's book on Brigid titled, The Life of Saint Brigid: Abbess of Kildare. It was published by Conciliar Press and was only just released in July 2009.

I had such a wild time tracking down sources for writing the book. This one, here, I've never seen but will check out... She is an inspiring woman to write about and I pray her story becomes more widely known, and that others will be affected by her example of wild generosity and love for God and her neighbor...

You can see more about my book, and the story behind it on my website: www.janegmeyer.com

Blessings...

Thank you for your comment, Jane. Your book looks great, and the audio and video clips on your website are good for sharing. I'll post a link to them on Brigit's Sparkling Flame.

Sweet blessings!
