A Beautiful Book Feb 18, 2004
I am using this book in a group setting with some other mothers in my parish. We all agree that it is a beautiful book in which to find affirmation and encouragement regarding our vocation as mothers and wives. Each section includes an inspirational quote (from a philosopher, saint, pope, etc.), a beautiful prayer, a reading on scripture, and questions for reflection. When I need to find a peaceful moment in my day and return my focus to God, this book provides the welcome respite my soul needs.
It Touched The Depths of My Soul! Apr 4, 2002
Grace Filled Moments is a breath of fresh air. It's easy form of reflection leads one "beside the still waters" to refresh the soul. So many of the scripture quotes are ones that are dear to my heart. There are wonderful quotes from such well-known personalities and saints such as Dorothy Day, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Pope John Paul II, Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen to name a few. This is truly a vehicle that touches the depths of my being.
Every woman should have a copy of this book! Mar 22, 2002
As a young woman who grew up surrounded by the popular feminist ideologies, I have been profoundly affected by this wonderful book. Grace-Filled Moments has helped me to deeply reflect on what it REALLY means to be a woman in the eyes of God and the specialness of our female gender. The world tells us that we have to hide or discard our feminity, and this book redirects us to truly appreciate our authentic feminity, especially in regards to the life bearing potential of our bodies and souls.
Each section has a wonderful theme related to the many aspects of true femininity. Having come full circle in my beliefs about abortion and contraception, I especially appreciated the reflective meditations on woman's fertility. This is a book which will transform your attitudes and your soul. My own spiritual walk with the Lord has deepened as I use the book for daily prayer and meditation. I have also found healing and comfort in the reflections about the wounds of the heart.
For those of you who are interested in the layout of the book, each section begins with a quote from a well-known spiritual writer, philosopher, or theologian (ex. St. Edith Stein, Pope John Paul II, Elisabeth Leseur.) The quote is followed by an inspiring prayer related to the theme. This is followed by a related quote from scripture and then there are several points/questions for prayer and meditation.
I can't recommend Grace-Filled Moments highly enough for all women, young or old, single or married. I plan on giving to all of my friends and loved ones as gifts!
The Joy and Blessings of Being a Woman Mar 19, 2002
I love this book. From the first moment I picked it up I knew it was special. It is a joyous celebration of what makes us women so wonderful. I am deeply touched by so much of it. It is sometimes hard to find resources today for women that aren't affected by the liberal Feminist movement. I want real, authentic, meaty books that provide me with soul enriching material and treat womanhood with respect, joy, and dignity. This book provides all that. What I really liked was the emphasis on the fact that we are special and truly God's favored ones. That He gave us great gifts & graces within our femininity, and that we can and should share them with our families and the world.
Absolutely beautiful book!!! Sep 23, 2001
This book is a must have for all Catholic women striving toward holiness and/or sainthood. There are 52 weeks of meditations that can be used daily, weekly, or however else you would like to use them. Lots of holy advice from saints of the past as well as beautiful prayers & questions to make you think from deep within yourself. Cannot recommend it highly enough!!!
(I only wish there was a description of the book here at this site.com; I had to research this book [elsewhere] before purchasing it here!!!)
