Mother Angelica once quipped, “I want you to have a new concept of holiness. You’ve got to be holy where you are: washing the dishes, at the office, at school. Where you are, you can be holy there.”
Like parenthood, the road to holiness is challenging and can be exhausting; this book will give you confidence in knowing that you have a plan of action, that you are not alone, and that countless other parents have grown in their love for God despite life’s myriad challenges.Paperback. 352 pages.
