I'm a big fan of Amy Welborn's writing, so it's no surprise that I loved A Catholic Woman's Book of Days. At the core of this book, however, lies the reason that I'm a Welborn fan. In succinct fashion, this book manages to educate, provoke and inspire the reader. Each of the daily offerings in the book includes a scripture reference, a two to five paragraph reflection, and a closing prayer. In her introductory remarks, Welborn shares that in this book she's tried to help the reader "clear a spiritual space" in her busy life to recognize the Presence of God.
Like most of the women I know, Welborn is a busy professional, a wife and mother who seems to "do it all" with great success. Perhaps that is why she was able to write this book in a tone that hits home for so many of us. If you're looking to make quiet time and daily prayer a part of your spiritual life, you will find this book to be a wonderful companion. A great gift for women of any age or situation, or a give yourself a treat and add it to your spiritual library.
