This book has inspired me in many ways - mostly on how as a mother I am to build my domestic church for the sanctification of my children and self. A book that you will want to read over again depending on the seasons of your motherhood!
  • Jonide
This is a WONDERFUL, CATHOLIC, book for ANY Mom who needs some serious inspiration to champion her in her daily life and Mom. Excellent!

When I read the other negative comments from her other books,I thought the readers were exagerrating.This is Donna's first book I read,and I felt she is extremely biased against working moms.I particularly found it offensive to what she said about we should not expect babysitters and caretakers to take care of our kids while we pursue our own ambitions.Not everyone has a perfect life like her.

It would be my dream-come-true to stay-at-home with my kids,but sometimes we have to make decisions before our financial matters fall apart.And I am not talking about luxurious living.I am all for staying and taking care of kids,because that way at least one parent is 100% avaialable in a kids life,but life is not always what you wish for.Many a times I left my kid at the babysitter and turned away with tears rolling out of my eyes.I couldn't wait to get home to hold my baby.But I had to do what is right for my family.I would never condemn or judge a working mother.More often than not,most working moms have a reason to do so.I still believe it is a luxury to be stay-at-home mom.Maybe not financially,but in terms of fulfillment in motherhood.

Stay-at-home homeschooling moms and fulltime working moms do have a difficult cross to bear balancing work and family and chores and spirtuality.Donna seems to have sent her kids to school,she must have had plenty of time to sit around and complte her tasks.So next she also starts condemning people who go to Sunday obligations on Saturday vigils.I have been buying hundreds of books from Amazon,but never have I seen any author balking at the negative comments as she does.What will be next?

She also touches on the Smart Martha concept,but doesn't do a good job explaining it.I prefer the original Smart Martha book
I have already ordered several books,
I hope all her books won't be such disappointment.

I'm not really a fan of books about motherhood. I've read a few, but it's not a genre I generally seek out. That makes me doubly glad for having discovered Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle's Grace Cafe: Serving Up Recipes for Faithful Mothering.

She starts the conversation with a truth I've witnessed over and over, among friends and women from all over: "Mothers today don't have many opportunities to receive a pat on the back." She continues, later in her introduction, "We can certainly benefit from encouragement and praise to aid and uplift us on our pilgrimage throughout the challenging vocation of motherhood. We can and should extend a hand to help each other along the way."

In eleven chapters, Donna-Marie serves up advice gleaned from her experiences and observations. I felt, reading it, that we were sitting down and having a discussion over a cozy cup of tea.

This book is perfect especially for mothers who are around their children all the time - I hesitate to say "stay at home" because I am not a "stay at home" mother, but I am around my children for big chunks of time, and I benefited from reading this book. Mothers who find themselves struggling with the demands of motherhood and the many expectations and pulls from the world around, gather! This book is for you!

Each chapter has a central theme - "How can I find myself through the vocation of motherhood?" for example - and a "recipe" to guide you through to the answer. I found the poems and prayers concluding each chapter a good point of reflection and a helpful reminder of Whose design we're supposed to follow.
'Throughout, Donna-Marie sprinkles the wisdom of modern-day saints - notably John Paul II and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta. She tackles more than just the easy challenges of Catholic motherhood, and she made me think about why I am the way I am.

There were a few points that made me stop reading - I wasn't sure I agreed with what Donna-Marie was saying. Going back, though, I appreciated Donna-Marie's conversational style, which leaves room for thought and growth.
'Do you find yourself at home, looking around with a weary heart and an over-busy mind, running the rat race of motherhood with no joy? Stop and brew a cup of tea, and sit down with this book. It's a boost of support, and not just for Catholics! All Christian mothers will benefit from O'Boyle's wisdom and advice, and will find themselves discovering the satisfaction of their vocation.
