Close to Home is for every young mother who's ever wished children came with an instruction manual; who's ever longed for just one quiet minute to finish a thought or utter a prayer; who's ever despaired of perfecting herself in time to become a good example for her children; who's ever wondered why "happily ever after" takes so darn much work.
With courage, humor, and unflinching honesty, Molly Sabourin addresses all these frustrations and more-offering not answers or solutions, but a new perspective, a pat on the shoulder, a reassuring "I've been there too, and there is hope." Those who share her "quest for patience, peace, and perseverance" will see themselves in these pages, laugh a little, cry a little, and close the book with new strength to continue the quest.
"The Orthodox Church is a repository of great and full spiritual literature- much of which can make a mother of young children feel like she's an irrelevant, distracted, decidedly non-spiritual entity with Cheerios in her hair. Is it possible to flourish and grow in your faith, while changing diapers and driving carpool? Close to Home shows that the answer is yes- and what's more, you're not alone." -Frederica Mathewes-Green, author of Facing East and At the Corner of East and Now
