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.
