Danielle Bean, editor of Catholic Digest, and Elizabeth Foss, an award-winning blogger, team up to offer daily doses of inspiration, wisdom, and hope for Catholic moms. Now back in print in response to high demand, Small Steps for Catholic Moms gives busy mothers a year's worth of sustenance: brief daily challenges about which to think, pray, and act.
Small Steps for Catholic Moms offers daily prompts and suggestions—small steps—for every day of the year to encourage Catholic moms to attain that elusive balance between action and contemplation in everyday life. Each day’s entry includes a short prayer from a saint, a personal prayer composed from the hearts of two mothers, and a small call to action, making this the perfect prayer companion for the busy mom looking for bite-sized spiritual nourishment.
"Feeds soul-starved mothers exactly what they need."
“This book feeds soul-starved mothers exactly what they need: small, daily meals that serve a rich, spiritual feast—Christ nourishment that offers practical ways to become like him in our domestic churches.”

"Families will grow closer to God and to one another."
“Danielle Bean and Elizabeth Foss may be recommending small steps that can be incorporated into our busy daily lives, but these two beloved authors will also help Catholic moms make great strides in supporting their families along life’s path to sainthood. By taking time each day to journey with Danielle and Elizabeth—to think, to pray, and to act—families will grow closer to God and to one another, while learning many fundamentals of our faith and having a great time together along the way!”
