Product Description

In Everyday Sacrament: The Messy Grace of Parenting Laura Kelly Fanucci sees the Catholic sacraments through the smudged and sticky lens of life with little ones. From dinnertime chaos to bath-time giggles to never-ending loads of laundry, Laura stumbles into the surprising truth of what the seven sacraments really mean: that God is present always, even in the messes of motherhood.

A spiritual memoir of parenting's early years and a sacramental theology rooted in family life, Everyday Sacrament offers an honest, humorous, and hopeful look at ordinary moments as full of grace.

Editorial Reviews

"Everyday Sacrament is a gift to every parent everywhere. Whether she's writing about giving a newborn a bath or flying with a cranky toddler, Fanucci reveals the holiness that lives right in the mess of parenting. Her writing is graceful, sensitive, and honest in its portrayal of the highs and lows of motherhood. This beautiful book is a feast for the mind, the heart, and the soul."
Ginny Kubitz Moyer, author of Random MOMents of Grace: Experiencing God in the Adventures of Motherhood

With heart, honesty and humor, Laura Kelly Fanucci's offering of a peek into her quest for God in the midst of the craziness of parenting will help inspire you along your own path to God. Full of tender moments and truth, this is a book that every Catholic who ever lived in a family will appreciate.
Lisa M. Hendey, Founder of CatholicMom.com and author of The Grace of Yes

Everyday Sacrament is a gift to any of us seeking God in the messiness of life and raising kids. With refreshing honesty, Laura Kelly Fanucci shares her home and heart to reveal the sacred in everything from changing diapers to rocking a child to sleep. Along the way, she develops a real-world theology that brings the sacraments to life and honors parenting for the holy vocation that it is. As with any encounter of grace, gratitude is in order for this powerful testimony to the messy grace of parenting.
Jeremy Langford, author of Seeds of Faith: Practices to Grow a Healthy Spiritual Life and father of three

As a mom, Laura Kelly Fanucci has a unique perspective on the Catholic sacraments-informed by everything from giving birth to her first child to chaos at the dinner table. Fanucci walks us through her experience of the seven sacraments as only a mother can.
St. Anthony Messenger

I wish I had a time-traveling media mail envelope. If I could send one book back to pregnant-me, I would send Everyday Sacrament. In the flyleaf, I'd write myself a simple note: Buckle up, buttercup. You're in for an awe-inspiring ride.
