She has been invited to speak on several topics of Catholic faith, but most especially has brought the Theology of the Body and talks on Mary to many parishes throughout the country.
Bearing witness to the truth of our creation as unique and unrepeatable persons with a purpose to shine and give glory to God in our distinct vocations and “corners of the Kingdom”, she offers inspiration to the engaged, married, parish religious education and family faith programs, and as a guest speaker for retreats/parish programs. She is a published author of many articles, and a contributor to the Catholic Mom’s Prayer Companion (Ave Maria Press). She blogs at cindyacostello.com, Gifts Into Flame Ministries.
