What is Everyday Saints?

M. Emily said...

Everyday Saints is an excellent book that I have been trying to read since October or November... I keep giving my copy away before I can finish it! I finally got a new one and am determined not to let it go until I read it from cover to cover.

Learn more here: http://www.everyday-saints.com/

Look for a blurb on the book here in a few days!
