Overview

Lisa Hendey's enthusiasm for saints is contagious. Building on the success of her first book, Hendey continues her work as the Catholic mom's coach to nurturing hearts, minds, bodies, and souls—this time through the rich Catholic communion of saints. With the warmth and candor of My Life with the Saints by James Martin, S.J., Hendey eloquently links personal stories, scripture, prayer, and simple soul-strengthening exercises into this rich spiritual resource for Catholic women.

Hendey offers one saint per week—some famous, some lesser known, some whose cause is in process—to offer companionship and guidance for the challenging, often under-thanked vocation of Catholic motherhood. She introduces Thérèse of Lisieux, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and Patrick, as well as Gianna Beretta Molla and Chiara Badano. Each week offers a thematic prayer intention, biographical and devotional information about the saint, lessons learned, daily scripture meditations, prayers, and practical, spiritually rich action steps that help moms incorporate the wisdom and exemplary faith of each saint.

What People Are Saying

James Martin
Every time a Catholic mother asks me what author she should read, I have a ready answer: Lisa Hendey. Her latest book is one that every mother (and father, son, and daughter too) will find accessible, inviting, and above all, useful. (Rev. James Martin, S.J., Author of My Life with the Saints)
Matthew Kelly
Lisa Hendey once again demonstrates that Catholicism is a treasure map—it may be old, but it still leads to treasure. The challenges of motherhood have increased exponentially over the past several decades, but the heroes and heroines of Christianity still have the answers. (Matthew Kelly, Author of Rediscover Catholicism)
Paula Huston
Lisa Hendey's Catholicism is as pure and joyful as the saints she writes about. A gracefully written introduction to the holy exemplars who can teach, sustain and bless mothers. (Paula Huston, Author of The Holy Way)
Danielle Bean
The communion of saints comes alive in these pages; we meet and learn more about some of God's most precious gifts—our spiritual friends and companions on our path toward heaven. Lisa Hendey knows exactly what inspires and encourages Catholic moms, and in this book, she absolutely delivers it. (Danielle Bean, Editorial Director of Faith & Family)
Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle
God bless Lisa Hendey for bolstering Catholic mothers by sharing her intimate companionship with fifty-two of her favorite saints. She provides a brand new look at them, complete with their well-worn wisdom, reminding us that we are never alone. (Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle, Author of A Catholic Woman's Book of Prayers, Host of EWTN's Everyday Blessings for Catholic Moms)
Teresa Tomeo
I am so grateful for Lisa Hendey's new book. Whether you're a spiritual Mom like me or a Mom with children who keep you on the move, A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms will provide much joy, guidance, and companionship on your journey. (Teresa Tomeo, Host of Catholic Connection)

    Wonderful book for busy moms

    I received this book as a gift and have really enjoyed it. As a mom of five children under 9, it allows me to spend time daily attending to my spiritual needs without becoming stressed about finding time to do it all. The saints covered in the book are inspiring and relevant to modern mothers. If you are looking for a way to spend a few minutes each day reflecting on your Catholic faith and being encouraged in your vocation as a mother, this book is a wonderful resource.
