    A Helping Hand--A Saint to Turn To--and a Book for On-the-Go MOMs

    The impossible, the loving, the perfect, the all-knowing, the untiring with unceasing patience--these are the standards that we moms sometimes find ourselves caught up in and hold ourselves to. But--we are human--and we need God's help--and who knows this better than the saints--our intercessors and role models? Author Christine Gibson identifies daily challenges and situations that we moms encounter, and matches each of these to a saint who has faced some of these very same issues. She encourages us to ask these saints to pray for us (just as we pray for or invite our earthly friends to pray for us), and to know that these saints are always on call.
