3.0 out of 5 stars Catholic Book of Days 5 May 2008
By kymag - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is well written, but it is not relevant to me...over 50, no children. The readings deal with family life joys and problems, most of which I have not experienced. Therefore, I cannot draw meaning from the devotions. Also, the devotions seem to be mostly the story of her life, not any good advice for me. A young woman with children...a stay at home mom...would probably benefit from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact but Profound 10 April 2006
By Lisa M. Hendey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting! 24 Mar 2006
By A. Hessong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a busy mom, I don't have a lot of time to read "extra" stuff. But, when I saw this book, something called out to me. I now have it in my car. I read the short day's scripture & story and off I go. I find it helps me think of better things through out my day other than the traffic or the myriad of things I have to do. Mrs. Welborne's writting opens your heart to let the Holy Spirit roam free inside you throughout your day!

5.0 out of 5 stars Offers a Quick Daily Jolt of Spirituality 26 Mar 2007
By Patrice Fagnant-macarthur - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In most of her works, Amy Welborn has a very straight-forward direct writing style. A forty-something mother of five children ranging in age from toddler to adult, former teacher, and accomplished writer and blogger, she comes across as a woman not to be messed with. Her beliefs and her faith are rock-solid and she will defend them to the death. In "A Catholic Woman's Book of Day's," I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to meet a softer side of Welborn.

This book offers a reflection for each day of the year, beginning with a scripture verse, then Welborn's comments, and concluding with a short prayer. In her reflections, Welborn shares stories from her own life, her struggles with parenting and her career and her pain at not being able to be at her mother's side as she passed away. She conveys all the hopes and prayers that all of us who struggle to make our way in the world can relate to. She speaks of having difficulties with her spiritual life at times and finding the faith to keep going. She offers her prayers of thanksgiving and praise and contrition and petition. She invites us to walk a year's journey with her.

These short reflections are perfect for a quick jolt of spirituality in the morning, or anytime in the day when you have five minutes to spare. Welborn has outdone herself with "A Catholic Woman's Book of Days."

4.0 out of 5 stars Great content but absolutely terrible digital edition 3 Aug 2009
By Javier A. Plumey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To be clear up front, this review is for the Kindle edition of the book. I bought this for my wife as she was looking for a good daily devotional for Catholic moms. This seems to fill the bill nicely. She is enjoying the book immensely, though it took a while for us to get started. You see, this book has absolutely no Table of Contents on the Kindle edition. Even worse, the date titles (e.g. July 2) are all images within the book so they cannot be searched. It took about five minutes to find the current date by trial and error and specifying locations within the Kindle. While the book is while written and really speaks to her as a Catholic Mom, the publishers did an embarrassingly terrible job with the ebook formatting for the Kindle. Four stars for the book, one star for the Kindle formatting.
