Welcome to the Blog Tour for “Small Steps for Catholic Moms” by Danielle Bean and Elizabeth Foss

Think:
“The proud person is like a grain of wheat thrown into water: it swells, it gets big. Expose that grain to the fire: it dries up, it burns. The humble soul is like a grain of wheat thrown into the earth: it descends, it hides itself, it disappears, it dies; but to revive in heaven.”
 – Bl. Mary of Jesus Crucified
Pray:
Pray the Litany of Humility today: Jesus, give me a humble heart like your own. Turn my selfish desires into selfless ones and help me to see your face in everyone I meet.
Act:
What’s the most distasteful job in your house? Cleaning up the dog droppings in the backyard? Scrubbing the gunk from behind the toilet? Sweeping the garage? Whatever it is, do it. While you work, give thanks for the blessings in your life.
 
This is an excerpt from July, which has a theme of “Humility.”

Want to know more about the book from Danielle and Elizabeth? I have an archived Among Women interview with the authors here from when the book first came out. (This book was originally released by a press that went out of business. I’m so happy that my publishers – Ave Maria Press – found it worthy to re-issue! This is certainly a keeper! One to pass on to loved ones, for sure!)
