Kelly Guest, author of 'Saintly Moms: 25 Stories of Holiness' hosts a 4-week Book Club to celebrate motherhood. Join us!

Do you have what it takes to be a mommy saint? We know you do!

Saintly Moms: 25 Stories of Holiness is here to support and inspire you in your vocation as a mom. This Catholic Mom Book Club is more like a mini-retreat.


Saintly Moms


From May 1 to 25, put yourself on a 30-minute time-out each day. This can be early in the morning, before bed, during nap time, even while sitting in the school carpool line.

Reading each short chapter of the book will be like having a different saintly mom speaker every day. Familiar saints like Saint Monica, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, and, of course, the Blessed Mother, as well as saints you may not know, like Saint Theneva and Blessed Marianna Biernacka will enlighten you about different aspects of motherhood. You will be provided with 2 reflection questions for each chapter to help you focus on the gift of your vocation and encourage you in living it out.


Download reflection questions


Then, meet with the author, Kelly Ann Guest, on Instagram Live each Wednesday evening in May at 7:00 PM Eastern, where she will review some of the lessons learned from these saintly moms. This mother of 9 will keep it real.

If you have not yet purchased the book, Saintly Moms: 25 Stories of Holiness, you may do so at Amazon or Our Sunday Visitor.

It will be like Mother’s Day all month long!
