Teresa Tomeo, talk show host, author, and journalist

Teresa Tomeo shares laughs and lessons from her book Everything’s Coming Up Rosie: 10 Things My Feisty Italian-American Mom Taught Me About Living A Godly Life. Through unforgettable “Rosieisms” from Teresa’s mother, a “street-smart theologian” from Jersey City, you’ll come to appreciate the value of your sufferings, big or small, and how they can help you and your loved ones live a sensible, well-grounded, godly life. Teresa shares how Rosie’s life, example, and practical advice will help you cultivate virtue in your life as you learn about: how “go ride your bike!” relates to health (and it’s not what you think), ways to always see the glass as half full, a bit of wisdom that Tomeo learned from both her mother and the Rolling Stones, how round-trip guilt trips can be a good thing, and why you should listen to your mother and “keep smiling.”

Join Teresa Tomeo for her WINE (Women in the New Evangelization) online book study Sept 5-Oct 10 when the book selection will be Everything’s Coming up Rosie. Sign up via Catholic Vineyard and receive the book, a prayer card, a journal, and access to live and recorded sessions.
