My guests this week are author Lisa Hendey and illustrator Katie Broussard. Together, they have created an adorable and inspiring children’s book, I’m a Saint in the Making, newly available from Paraclete Press. This book highlights saints such as John Paul II and Mother Teresa of Calcutta while encouraging kids to know we are all called to be saints. It includes resources for parents and educators as well.

Children remind us that even the small ways of loving can transform the world and mold us into saints
Lisa and Katie share about how this book project came to be and ways that they hope it will reach children with a message of hope and encouragement.
The illustrations in this book are warm and whimsical. The message will touch your heart and the hearts of young people in your life too. Definitely a great idea for religious education programs, schools, and gifts for your kids or God children. Check it out here!
I want to remind you about the Catholic Moms Summit, a HUGE and unique online event I am hosting that will be taking place November 13-15. We have over 60 amazing presenters that will be sharing inspirational and practical talks about ways to find peace, balance, and joy in family living. Registration is free, so head on over and make sure you are a part of this event!
My newest book is one that I wrote with Dan, the Manual for Marriage, a beautiful resource for every couple. In it, Dan and I share reflective essays on marriage and family life, but it also features a large collection of prayers, Scripture passages, hymns, and stories from the saints that will encourage and support you in your married relationship.
I have received so much feedback from all of you about my newest book and the first chapter that I shared with you at the end of episode 210. Giving Thanks and Letting Go: Reflections on the Gift of Motherhood is a book in which I share from my heart about the very real changes, challenges, triumphs, and joys of being a mom in an “emptying nest.” You can read that sample chapter at Ave Maria Press.
