Mary’s Way: The Power of Entrusting Your Child to God

How do you walk with your children during times of struggle and crisis? Do you feel as if nothing you do will be enough? Let Judy Landrieu Klein be your companion with our newest CatholicMom.com Book title: Mary’s Way: The Power of Entrusting Your Child to God.

About the Book:

marys wayIn Mary’s Way, a heartfelt book for moms who struggle to guide children through the various stages of their lives, Catholic speaker and teacher Judy Landrieu Klein shows how her own crisis of faith helped her release her children to the care of the Blessed Mother. In doing so, Klein shows you how to find the love, joy, and peace of Our Lord as you surrender your will to him.

Judy Landrieu Klein struggled with her faith as she lived through her son’s near-fatal addiction to drugs and her daughter’s painful anxiety.  She discovered she couldn’t handle the relentless pressure of life not measuring up to her expectations and it was eating away at her family.

Klein considered Mary’s reaction to the events in the life of Jesus. She meditated on Mary’s fiat and her prayer of total surrender to God’s will and saw how this act of obedience carried on throughout Mary’s life as she witnessed the life of her son. As Klein focused on her devotion to the Blessed Mother, her life and faith were transformed.

In Mary’s Way, Klein reflects on the Annunciation and describes her own to struggle to embrace the will of God by surrendering control of her family planning.  She meditates on Mary’s powerlessness during the Crucifixion, finding a place of calming surrender during her own son’s escalating battle with addiction.

Klein shows how you can become a more powerful intercessor for yourself and your children. When you finish reading this book, you’ll find yourself turning to Mary and surrendering yourself and your children more fully to God.

“Judy Landrieu Klein’s stories invite us into a deeper relationship with the Lord and the Blessed Mother, encouraging us to ‘yield to God and say yes to him in whatever life brings.’ Klein’s ‘yes’ to God, modeled after the Blessed Virgin Mary’s fiat, can be our yes, too.”

“Through vivid personal stories of suffering and joy, Judy shares her own mother’s heart, and how she came to know the most blessed of all mothers, Mary. Mary’s Way is about both—the power of our own maternal prayers, and Mary’s motherly interceding for us.”

Pat Gohn

“With poignant and relatable storytelling, Judy invites us into the intimacy of her profound sorrows as a wife, mother, sister and daughter in the hopes that the lessons of faith she learned will benefit us in our own struggles.  If you’re a mother or grandmother, you need Mary’s Way.”
