    I loved this book! As a Christian mom (not Orthodox but with a clear understanding of liturgy and sacrament) I struggle with weaving faith into the nooks and crannies of everyday life. Sabourin's writing gives the courage to continue trying and the grace needed at the inevitable failures along the way. Rather than coming up with cutesy ideas about what to do, this "faith in the home" book is about changing one's mindset. I loved this book!

    Loved this book. It’s been on my shelf for a few years now, but, just like Molly, life can be overwhelming. I’m so glad I did, though! It was encouraging, inspiring, and just so real for an Orthodox or Eastern Catholic mom-in-the-trenches. Really, for any mom. I plan on buying my daughter a copy of this when she gets married.

    So far this seems like the best fit for where I am in life's seasons, and for what I need to hear. I will definitely reread this book, and, for the first time ever, I am tempted to write and underline in a book. I want to reread this right away...

    Fantastic. Just the book I needed. I only wish I had read it during the first few months after my daughter was born! I will definitely read at least parts (whole chapters!) of this book again.

    A wonderful book for Orthodox moms. Filled with wisdom and inspiration, Molly's stories and musings make you want to be a better parent, and let you know that you are not alone in your struggle... A wonderful book for Orthodox moms.
