"My faith and my family bring me an abundance of joy. When I slow down enough to recognize it, I know that my heart spills over with the goodness of God’s grace. When a simple soul is filled with such an overwhelming surplus of undeserved blessing, it’s hard to keep the good fortune to oneself. Thus the biggest part of what I hope to accomplish here is to share the bounty—with my friends, with my neighbors, and with you. As it turns out, happiness loves company, too."
Share the happiness—as well as the challenges—of Danielle Bean’s sometimes chaotic, often inspiring, always blessed life as the mother of six young children. In an essay collection that takes us from the aisles of the local grocery store to the beauty of a memorable Christmas midnight Mass, Danielle joyously welcomes us into her home and her family.
Every Catholic mother will delight in discovering humor, truth, and a wellspring of spiritual nourishment in these beautifully written stories.

About this Book:
"Danielle writes about the everyday occurrences in the life of a Catholic Mom with a voice that will sound familiar to you - it's your voice, my voice, the voice of my mom...the voice of all of us who are working diligently to love and raise our children to be wonderful individuals who know and love their faith.
