I originally got The Handbook for Catholic Moms for a book study my mom’s group was doing. The study itself did not continue, but I did continue reading Lisa Hendey’s very useful book. The book is divided into four parts: heart, mind, body, and soul, with the idea of helping mom’s nurture their whole being. The premises is really great, bringing a sense of balance to (for many of us moms) an imbalanced life.
This is not a book like many on the market today about taking care of you and only you, for the sole purpose of selfishness. The Handbook for Catholic Moms (much like the website Lisa started, CatholicMom.com) is about being a better version of yourself so as to be more of a blessing to our families.
