Thea's Song: The Life of Thea Bowman  May 4, 2010
Thea's Song: The Life of Thea Bowman is truly an amazing story. I could go into a lengthy assembly of expressive words and accolades, but I'll just say, "I pray that this book will become a best seller for many years to come and also be made into a movie." The world needs to know about Sister Thea Bowman and the things she learned while on the spiritual journey to become a nun in the Order of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration.

A Beautiful Little Book  Jan 28, 2009
This Little Light is a beautiful book about Sister Thea Bowman, a black Franciscan nun from rural Mississippi. Sister Thea was an inspiration to many in her blending of Catholicism with the African-American experience. Her devotion may have followed an unusual path, but she inspired many with her spirit and changed the lives of many. McGrath's paintings help make her spirit more accessible to the reader with their vibrant colors and beautiful motion. This book has inspired me to learn more about this most interesting woman.
