Life has been so busy this yearÂ with Taste and See getting out there in the world that I haven’t mentioned anything aboutÂ another, very exciting book project: The Catholic Mom’s Prayer Companion.Â This fat little book with a gorgeous cover is the brainchild of editors Lisa Hendey and Sarah Reinhard, andÂ I am honored to have been one of many women (and even a few men) whoÂ helped write it.
This is a daily devotions book that you can pick up and start anytime. Â Each day has a short reflection (sometimes inspired byÂ Scripture, sometimes byÂ the life of a saint, sometimes by a holiday or aÂ meaningful quotation), a prayer, and a way to integrate the ideas of the devotion into your own life. Â Short and sweet!
When I got my copies last night, I triedÂ to keep myself from readingÂ days’ worth of devotions at once, and I failed miserably. Â It’sÂ just so fun to read the collective wisdom of so many wonderful writers, each with a unique voice but all united around the shared goal of helping moms feed their souls and nourish their faith.
So if you’re looking to establish thatÂ new routine now that the kiddos are back in school (or almost!), check out this book. Â It’s a great one to read in those few minutes while you sip your morning coffee, or to have in your bag as you wait in the carpool line.
