Quoted from the words of Mother Angelica, “I want you to have a new concept of holiness. You’ve got to be holy where you are: washing the dishes, at the office, at school. Where you are, you can be holy there.” The path to holiness is difficult and can be draining, just like being a parent. This book, however, will inspire in you the assurance that you have a strategy, that you are not alone, and that many other parents have grown in their love for God in spite of life's numerous difficulties.
