Small Steps for Catholic Moms

When it was initially released in 2010, Small Steps for Catholic Moms: Your Daily Call to Think, Pray and Act by Danielle Bean and Elizabeth Foss was immediately on the top of my “wish list” of books. At that time, I was blogging at FaithandFamilyLive.com and had the great good fortune of counting both Elizabeth and Danielle as great friends. The book took the Catholic Mom blogosphere by storm, uplifting all of us with its simple, yet profound approach to bringing faith to life in our Domestic Churches. Sadly, the book fell victim to a publishing house’s closure and went out of print far too soon.

Fast forward a few years later, and we’re thrilled to share the good news that not only is Small Steps for Catholic Moms back in print, it’s actually the newest installment in our CatholicMom.com Books partnership with Ave Maria Press!

I’m completely thrilled with the new format of Elizabeth and Danielle’s instant classic: the “insides” of the book contain that same patented Foss/Bean spiritual wisdom — profound, yet “accomplishable” (is that a word?!) But this new version of the book is smaller in format, which makes it perfect to drop into your diaper bag, purse, or briefcase.

Here’s an overview of this treasure:

Danielle Bean, editor of Catholic Digest, and Elizabeth Foss, an award-winning blogger, team up to offer daily doses of inspiration, wisdom, and hope for Catholic moms. Now back in print in response to high demand, Small Steps for Catholic Moms gives busy mothers a year’s worth of sustenance: brief daily challenges about which to think, pray, and act.

Small Steps for Catholic Moms offers daily prompts and suggestions—small steps—for every day of the year to encourage Catholic moms to attain that elusive balance between action and contemplation in everyday life. Each day’s entry includes a short prayer from a saint, a personal prayer composed from the hearts of two mothers, and a small call to action, making this the perfect prayer companion for the busy mom looking for bite-sized spiritual nourishment.

This week, we’ll have seven days full of Small Steps celebration, with five reviews (including one by a DAD!) and an interview by our own Sarah Reinhard — and stay tuned until the end of the celebration because we’ll cap off our party with a special contest!

Please join me in congratulating Elizabeth and Danielle on a their support of a whole new generation of Catholic Moms. Small Steps for Catholic Moms is a big blessing!

  1. I’m so happy to hear this lovely book is back in print. I was fortunate enough to purchase a copy when it first came out but have been unable to purchase any more to give as gifts.
