"Mom Donna" and Mother Teresa are both helpful Lenten companions, offering encouragement and creative ideas for family prayer, fasting, and almsgiving throughout this holy season. Though we already have loads of Lenten traditions in our family, I always take something new away from Donna-Marie's books. I love the "Reflections for Parents" in this book, as well as the stories from Mother Teresa's life.~Karen Edmisten, Author of After Miscarriage
From the Author
I pray that this book, through Blessed Mother Teresa's intercession, will inspire families to grow in holiness.

Every day, the quote, reflection, prayer, story and action present a powerful message that can only lead you closer to God. Going through each day, you take on Mother Teresa's mantle of doing small things with great love. For example, on the Thursday of the Second Week of Lent: Fasting: Suggest to the children that they fast today from unkind thoughts about others and from saying unkind things. Almsgiving: Ask the children to think about a gift they can give to the Blessed Mother today - a prayer, a gesture, an act of kindness, a sacrifice.
I cannot imagine it possible to go through Lent praying with this book and remain the same person on Easter morning. Spending time with Mother Teresa humbles you before God and surrounds you in His love. I predict living Mother Teresa's words during Lent will change your life.
Donna, through the relationship she developed with Mother Teresa over 10 years, relates the words and stories of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta to our Lenten journey in a wonderful, personal way. Praying with this book during this 40-day retreat will bring you closer to the life of this Saint and deepen your faith life.
