Female Author Writes Book For Boys About Becoming Men? Author To be Interviewed on CatholicTV

BOSTON- On June 15th, Cheryl Dickow co-author of “All Things Guy”, a book which aims to teach boys aged 9 to 13 to become “Men Who Matter”, will be interviewed on the live CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day”.

This is the Day airs at 10:30AM ET at and on CatholicTV. The show is rebroadcast at 7:30PM.

All Things Guy discusses the dignity of the person, relationships (family, friends, bullies, girls), virtues, vocations, puberty, the importance of knowing history, a prayer plan and examples of strong Catholic men today.

Catholic writer and speaker Lisa Hendey wrote of the book, “All Things Guy: A Guide to Becoming a Man that Matters is chock full of great content presented in a fashion that will appeal to boys. Mixed in with the messages on dignity, virtues, and becoming a “Man that Matters” are mazes, puzzles, games and activities that drive home the authors’ points. I particularly enjoyed the “Media and Men that Matter” and “Know Your History” chapters. The book is aimed at readers ages nine through 13, but could be read to younger boys under adult supervision and will also be enjoyed by older boys due to the depth of the content included.”

Cheryl Dickow is a Catholic wife, mother, author, speaker and publisher. She is a columnist with work appearing on several sites including Catholic Exchange, National Catholic Register and She has a Master’s Degree in Education and lives in the beautiful state of Michigan.
