Small Steps Giveaway

SmallSteps600x600I’m so excited to help announce the re-arrival of Small Steps for Catholic Moms: Your Daily Call to Think, Pray, and Act, the wildly popular meditation book/sanity saver from the minds of Danielle Bean and Elizabeth Foss.

Here’s an excerpt of a daily meditation:

“He is rich enough who is poor with Christ.”
– St. Jerome
Thank you, God, for all the ways you provide for me and my family. Give your help to those who are not as blessed as we are.
See how long you can go without spending any money. A day? A few days? A week? Longer? Give thanks to God for the abundance you enjoy.
This is an excerpt from February, which has a theme of “Simplicity.”

If you’d like a chance to own a copy (for free!) leave a comment here (one entry per person please!). I will do a drawing Friday afternoon.

In the meantime you can enter over here for another chance to win the book, or pick up a copy. It’s worth buying! So simple and inspiring, just what we women need to start our day — set our focus in the right direction.

I have 2 Danielle’s book at home translated in our language and those are my favourite books in my mummy-library (have 3 kids under 4). Shipping would be probably crazy but not impossible:)
