My Cup of TeaMusings of a Catholic MomDanielle Bean My faith and my family bring me an abundance of joy. When I slow down enough to recognize it, I know that my heart spills over with the goodness of God's grace. When a simple soul is filled with such an overwhelming surplus of undeserved blessing, it's hard to keep the good fortune to oneself. Thus the biggest part of what I hope to accomplish here is to share the bounty--with my friends, with my neighbors, and with you. As it turns out, happiness loves company, too.

Every Catholic mother will delight in discovering humor, truth, and a wellspring of spiritual nourishment in these beautifully written stories.
