Editorial Reviews

Advance praise for Walk Softly and Carry a Great Bag

"One of Teresa’s greatest gifts is her uncanny ability to present a perfect combination of reality and spirituality, and this book touches the hearts and concerns of women in every stage of life, no matter what their circumstances. With all that women do these days, Walk Softly is a 'must-have'—the practical thoughts and prayers guide readers to a deeper relationship with God. Whether you read it in the car-pool line, while waiting in the doctor’s office, during Adoration, or at the end of the day before getting ready for bed, Teresa’s words will speak to your heart and the prayers will move you." —Julie Alexander, cofounder, the Alexander House, and coauthor, Marriage 911

"Walk Softly and Carry a Great Bag is just what the doctor ordered—it’s precisely what every Christian woman today needs in her bag or on her night table. Teresa brings womanly insight, Catholic teaching, humor, and a whole lot of love into this modern-day devotional. I absolutely love this book!" —Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, EWTN TV host, award-winning author, The Miraculous Medal

"Who says you can’t have style with your time with God? Teresa Tomeo finds a way to make on-the-go devotions more than just a passing fad, and she does it with style and verve. This is a book you can tuck in your bag, share with your best friend, and use to grow closer to God." —Sarah Reinhard, author and blogger

"Walk Softly and Carry a Great Bag reminds me daily to ask for help, take care of myself, and appreciate all God has given me." —Cary Alfonso

"Walk Softly and Carry a Great Bag is classic Teresa Tomeo: In her customary Italian style, she tells it like it is, reminding us that God loves a modern woman, and that a modern woman needs to spend time with God, no matter how chaotic her life might feel. In this book you’ll find practical spiritual advice that a busy woman can consume in just a few minutes but process for the rest of the day. It’s a perfect book to keep next to the makeup mirror to read while getting ready…or in your purse for whenever you find a few precious moments for reflection on the go!" —Anna Mitchell, news director and producer, EWTN Radio Son Rise Morning Show

"This delightful little book combines the wisdom of the saints with the sassy wit of a close girlfriend. The entries are brief, powerful, and often funny—just what the modern Catholic woman needs to give her spiritual life a boost." —Jennifer Fulwiler, radio host and author, Something Other Than God

"Carry a great bag…big enough to fit this book, because once you pick it up, you won’t want to put it down! With wit and wisdom, Teresa Tomeo offers the busiest woman a quick (and I do mean quick) way to take "me" time, and with simple devotions that refuel and refresh, she shows how true happiness resides in letting every single aspect of your life be accompanied by the Lord.—Kelly Wahlquist, author, Created to Relate

"Like sitting down for a pep talk over cappuccino with a trusted friend, Walk Softly and Carry a Great Bag is a little luxury, a timely gift you deserve to give yourself in the midst of life’s busyness and stress. Teresa Tomeo’s wit, wisdom, and beautiful soul permeate these pages. This daily devotional delivers a boost to get you revved up to give your very best to God and the world around you. Toss it in your best bag, pray with it daily, and live life to the fullest!" —Lisa M. Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com and author, The Grace of Yes

"As someone who has struggled with anxiety for most of my life, I know the power of letting God speak to me through pages of the Bible. Unfortunately, many people are too busy or too unfamiliar with Scripture to tap into this great resource. In Walk Softly and Carry a Great Bag, Teresa Tomeo makes it practical for anyone to obtain a quick biblical boost whenever necessary! Each verse is personalized with an uplifting reflection—it’s perfect for those who ’don’t have time’ to read the Bible. Highly recommended!" —Gary Zimak , Catholic speaker and author, Faith, Hope, and Clarity

"Like the Martha Stewart of Catholic womanhood, Teresa Tomeo knows how to pull it all together. Faithful, funny, and a little feisty, Teresa’s reflections are a treat for any woman who wants a bite-sized daily morsel to spice up her spiritual routine." —Gina Loehr, author, St. Francis, Pope Francis

"An old adage in the spiritual life says that if the devil can’t make you bad, he’ll make you busy. Teresa Tomeo has written useful short reflections that busy people can carry with them for personal prayer and spiritual growth. Put it in your bag!" —Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J., EWTN host and author, The Holy Land: An Armchair Pilgrimage

"Once again Teresa combines her trademark wit and substance that pierces the heart and draws us closer to God. This year, I’m going to begin my days with Walk Softly. Bravo!" —Meg Meeker, M.D, author, Strong Mothers, Strong Sons

"How much do I love this devotional? Lots! What kind of woman would benefit from having a copy of this in her purse? Every kind! Tomeo’s pithy writing will have you laughing out loud, reflecting thoughtfully, and praying with your whole heart, sometimes all on the same page!" —Danielle Bean, author, Momnipotent

"Teresa Tomeo has done it again! Inspirational and entertaining at the same time, Walk Softly and Carry a Great Bag is a down-to-earth and eminently practical guide for today’s hyper-busy woman. If you want to know the secret of how to transform the distractions of everyday life into opportunities for spiritual growth, get this book!" —Marcellino D'Ambrosio ("Dr. Italy"), author, When the Church Was Young
