 Our Description

Lisa Hendey’s enthusiasm for the saints is contagious in A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms. Building on the success of her first book, A Handbook for Catholic Moms, Hendey continues her work of nurturing hearts, minds, bodies, and souls—this time through the rich tradition of the Catholic communion of saints. With the warmth and candor of My Life with the Saints by James Martin, S.J., Hendey eloquently links personal stories, scripture, prayer, and simple soul-strengthening exercises into this rich spiritual resource for Catholic women.

Hendey offers one saint per week—some famous, some lesser known, some whose cause is in process—to offer companionship and guidance for the challenging, often under-thanked vocation of Catholic motherhood. She introduces Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Saint André Bessette, C.S.C, as well as Gianna Beretta Molla and Chiara Badano.

The 52 weekly companions to the lives of the saints include:

  • a thematic prayer intention,
  • biographical and devotional information about the saint,
  • Hendey's personal lessons,
  • daily scripture meditations,
  • prayers,
  • and practical, spiritually rich action steps that help moms incorporate the wisdom and exemplary faith of each saint into their daily lives.

This item received 5 stars overall. A busy mom's spiritual resource

 Lisa Hendey, founder and editor of, has written a fantastic resource for busy moms looking to enrich their prayer lives.  Her book, A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms, highlights 52 saints and takes the reader on a weekly journey getting to know each one intimately through prayer, scripture and Mrs. Hendey’s personal reflections.
I adore the lesser known saints featured in her writings. My copy fell open to St. Zita of Lucca, a simple servant to a wealthy Italian family in the thirteenth century. Here the author shows the reader that they can live holy lives by imitating the actions of these saints and obtain a simple piety even Full Review...

This item received 5 stars overall. A wonderful resource all Catholic homes should have

A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms is a wonderful resource all catholic homes should have. This book is all that I have been searching for and wanting.  It's just what busy moms and houses have been looking for. The readings and activites are simple and fun. This is one book you will find yourself reaching for over and over.
I love that many of the saints are lesser known and not ones you might think of right off the bat. From the Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, to a  virtually unknown Kateri Tekakwitha . You will have 52 saints to get you through the year. This book would be a wonderful addition to a family study. Spend the year learning about the saints. For each saint the author has included: 
  • Stories: A brief biography of the saint
  • Lessons: reflections of what each saint tau Full Review...
