What people are saying:

Catherine McNiel doesn’t urge you to “make time for God” in early parenting but rather to see God there already: in the trial, in the joy, in the leaky diapers, plugged ducts, and scraped knees. –Ted Olsen, Director of editorial development at Christianity Today
Catherine’s words are nothing short of a banquet table of nourishment for a hungry mama’s soul. Read and be seen, feel valued, and awaken to the beautiful, spiritual practice of motherhood. -Aubrey Sampson, Author of Overcomer
