Are You a Busy Catholic Mom Struggling to Find Prayer Time?
In our busyness, we moms often neglect our own prayer lives while seeing to the many needs of our families. This little book is your encouragement that setting aside even a few moments of quiet prayer each day can be one of the very best gifts you can give to your family. Whether you are a new or seasoned mom working in or outside of your home, this inspiring collection of reflections for every day of the year will help you:
- stay in touch with the seasons of the Church year;
- remember Mary’s loving presence on her feast days;
- keep company with both new and familiar saints;
- see the spiritual meaning of secular holidays; and
- make you smile with occasions such as Houseplant Appreciation Day and National Popcorn Day.
Pause and Reflect for a Few Moments Each Day
Prayers to Guide
Each day begins with a brief quotation from scripture, saints, recent popes, or important spiritual writers.
Reflections to Inspire
