Welcome to the CatholicMom.com Sunday Brunch! We're serving up a buffet of articles from the past week. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and settle in to enjoy some great reads.
Unleashed Book Club
This week we’re discussing Chapter 3 from Unleashed, by Sonja Corbitt. Sarah Damm shares her thoughts on facing (and conquering) our predominant fault. She also conveys the reality that God loves us in our predominant fault, but loves us too much to want us to stay there.
Guided by their Catholic faith, the founders of Unbound set out to connect the world with the struggles and tremendous capabilities of families in poverty. Unbound shares how these families become agents of change.
