It wasn’t until she became a mother — a foster mother, to be precise — that Heidi realized just how difficult motherhood can be. “All of a sudden, all my ‘Mommy Monsters’ came out to play, full force. There were these tiny creatures pushing in on me at all hours of the day and night. There was no time to sleep, or eat, or shower … or do any of the other things I had done the first forty years of my life without a second thought.”
And yet, it was also a time of extraordinary blessing. Heidi’s two new books, Raising Up Mommy: Virtues for Difficult Mothering Moments and Behold Your Mother: Mary Stories and Reflections from a Catholic Convert, have been enthusiastically received by “Extraordinary Moms” all over the country.
Autographed copies of both books are available for purchase here.
