If you haven’t already, stop what you’re doing and order a copy of Elizabeth Foss and Danielle Bean’s newest book Small Steps for Catholic Moms. It’s not a book that’s meant to be read in one sitting (although you could if you wanted to!) but rather a book to be savored over the course of a year. It’s a 365 day devotional where each day includes 3 steps: Think (a reflection from a saint or the bible), Pray (a short prayer to help you get focused), and Act (a simple action to put the month’s virtue into practice). I’m finding this book to be my spiritual anchor right now…it’s hard with two little ones to find quiet time to pray and grow, but this book is making it possible. No matter what point you’re at in mothering, you’ll find hope, encouragement, and spiritual noursishment between the covers of this little gem.
