New review on The Heart of Motherhood

The Heart of Motherhood

Excellent & Beautiful book for all Catholic Mothers, July 11, 2007

By M. Mccormack (Sandown, NH United States)

I’ve read MANY books about being Catholic, being a Mom & being a Catholic Mom…but none of them have touched my heart & mind the way this one did. It was SO common sense about how to weave our Catholicity into our daily lives when there are children at our feet before 5 AM (when it’s near impossible to get up before them to pray…even if we really, really want to) and at night, we just pass out, not fall asleep. I read this book twice, have MUCH highlighting throughout & even bought a 2nd copy to give to my sil for her birthday this past Feb. Being a Mom can seem to be a thankless job, being a stay-at-home mom is less than respected in today’s society and being a Catholic Mom in the truest sense of the word, can be rougher than anything else I could imagine. Using the practical wisdom in this book helped me to see that even though I can’t physically be on my knees in prayer, my heart can be bowed down & focused on Our Lord all day, everyday, keeping my focus on the true Heart of (Catholic) Motherhood.


Thank you, Mary!

I'm not a mother but I hope to be someday....and reading the reviews of your books is making me want to go out and buy them to read them now in "preparation" for my future vocation as a momma!

Hi Jen,

You are a very smart woman! You are so wise to prepare yourself for motherhood - not everyone would think such a thing, you know.

God bless you!
