“A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms: 52 Companions for Your Heart, Mind, Body, and Soul”
by Lisa Hendey
Lisa Hendey is a rare human being and a beautiful woman of faith. Beloved by her millions of readers at CatholicMom.com and those of us who devoured her best seller, “The Handbook for Catholic Moms,” she has a genuine gift for friendship. Who better to bring us this gorgeous new resource, “A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms,” which introduces us to 52 of the Catholic Church’s canonized saints through brief, but compelling summaries of their lives, their teachings, the Church’s traditions, quotes, related scriptural passages and suggested activities for use with our children.
So neglected in recent years, friendship with the saints is a great gift offered to us by God through the traditions of Mother Church. As Lisa lovingly demonstrates, through friendship with these unique and deeply human role models, we draw closer to God in the singular and intimate way in which He speaks to (and through) each one of us. Each of the 52 chapters is structured for use during the course of one week, entertainingly engaging us and our families through an entire year of learning about and praying to these amazing and often charming heavenly companions, who watch over us and joyfully intercede for our needs. What a gift to those we love! And what a delightful and intelligently constructed gem of a book!
Set to be released October 24, you can now pre-order at Amazon.com. Highly recommended.
