Mamas Can Be Saints (with Kelly Guest)

This week I am joined by Catholic mom and author Kelly Guest whose first book, Saintly Moms: 25 Stories of Holiness, is newly available. In the book, Kelly shares the stories of moms who are saints in ways that are sure to inspire you on your own path toward heaven. 

Snippet from the Show

“Connection is more important than perfection.”


“We can relate to that idea of being sanctified by our children and being called to greater holiness in various ways by our kids. It is so humbling.”


Kelly Guest is a contributor at Catholic Mom, and a blogger on her own website. You can connect wight Kelly on social medias as well:




How about you? What small practices help you to be more grateful every day?

At the end of today’s show, I share my response to a question from Margaret who is worried about hosting difficult relatives this Thanksgiving. Here is the video I reference where Fr. Mark Mary and I discuss ways to love people, even when they are annoying.

Also mentioned in today’s show: The Catholic Momcast, a podcast from Catholic Mom that I love getting work on with Lisa Hendey and Allison Gingras. Check it out!

Have feedback or an idea to share? I would love to hear from you!

Megan Madden

Megan Madden is a homeschooling mother with a passion for writing and speaking on authentic femininity and virtuous womanhood. In 2017, she began graduate studies in marriage and family at the International Theological Institute in Austria. After moving to Kraków, Poland to work with university students, Megan more personally continued her research on the complementarity of man and woman, particularly on the question of what it means to be a woman. She delved into the study of renowned Catholic writers on women such as St. Edith Stein, Gertrude von le Fort, Alice von Hildebrand, St. John Paul II, and St. Teresa of Avila.

The results were the development of Megan’s online ministry A Mother’s Lace, as well as speaking opportunities and her book with Ascension: Mary, Teach Me to Be Your Daughter.

Megan lives outside of Oxford, England with her husband, who is a lecturer in theology, and their five children.
