with the Mass Journal for Catholic Moms
What if you could
You can, with Until I Rest in You.
Because motherhood changes EVERYTHING.
Not even Mass is the same: before kids, you could hear the homily and surrender yourself to Jesus. After kids, you're bouncing babies, shushing toddlers, and managing sibling squabbles before the Penitential Rite begins. (And man, are you gonna need it.)
As a mom to three exceptional children, I know the struggle well. I created Until I Rest in You as a resource for Catholic moms longing to engage fully with the Mass.
While St. Augustine wasn't a mother, he understood the inmost desire of the human heart. It is a yearning all too familiar to those of us raising children: the desire to rest, to be at peace, and be fortified for raising saints.
But if you're like me, you long for God's word to be inscribed in your heart.
You want to renew your passion for the Eucharist;
embrace the connection between reason and faith;
know the beauty and the truth of Scripture and Tradition;
connect your motherhood to a devotion to the Sacraments, to Our Lady, and the Truth of Holy Mother Church.
As the only Mass journal for moms with an emphasis on finding God's presence in the trenches of motherhood, Until I Rest in You is an excellent tool for guiding your formation in the faith:
Discussion questions help you gather the meaning of the readings, even if you missed the Liturgy of the Word.
Thoughtful meditations help you meditate on the holy vocation of motherhood, finding your sanctification in the beauty of your children.
Simple suggestions for liturgical living guide you in your efforts to bring your faith to life.
Journal pages feature plenty of space for writing and reflecting. You can use the journal

Until I Rest in You is totally flexible. You can use it any time, any where - not just in Mass.
Until I Rest in You is perfect for moms of exceptional kiddos. I designed it with my own experiences as a special needs mom in mind.
Until I Rest in You is great for moms at any stage of life. While most of us need more help when our children are younger and more difficult to keep occupied, any mother can benefit from the Mass Journal.
Until I Rest in You won't pull your attention away from the Mass. It will draw you in, helping you to engage more fully than you might on your own.
