Raves and Reviews

"My criteria for a good devotional book are three-fold: succinct, challenging, and authentic. In the Catholic Devotional for First-Time Moms, Karianna Frey nails it. Moms will love the Scripture passage that greets them every day, but the narrative and daily action will make it real and meet them right where they are. I wish I had this book 20 years ago!" —Kathryn Whitaker, author of Live Big, Love Bigger and mom of 6

"These meditations, reflection questions, and prayers are remarkably insightful, encouraging, and precisely what I wish I could've read after I had my first child. Karianna has given us a gift with her honest words and practical advice, and I can't wait to give this devotional as a gift to friends." —Katie Prejean McGrady, author and host of The Katie McGrady Show on Sirius XM
