Heidi’s Books

Heidi Saxton is an acquisitions editor for Ave Maria Press … but she also enjoys writing her own books! Here are a couple of her recent books you might enjoy,  both published in celebration of Mother Teresa’s canonization in September 2016.


Lent with Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Mother Teresa was a champion of children in need of a mother’s love. A tireless opponent of abortion, she and the Missionaries of Charity have worked tirelessly to find homes for children who for whatever reason could not be raised by their own parents, and founded her own children’s homes in Calcutta.

“If you want to change the world, go home and love your family.” In this book, Mother Teresa’s wisdom is combined with short Scriptures and my own reflections to help you get a little closer to God during Lent.


Advent with Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Take a quiet moment or two, on your own or with your family as you light the Advent candles, to ponder the life and wisdom of Saint (Mother) Teresa in this companion book, which offers daily meditations from the first day of Advent through the New Year.

Both books are available through Amazon.com or Franciscan Media.
