CWG: Big-Hearted Families, Inspiring Stories from everyday families

by Patti Armstrong and Theresa Thomas

Editor's Note: When my review was posted on Catholic Writers Guild blog, Patti commented: 

Thanks for the beautiful review. Theresa and I, together with Scepter Publishing, are donating 100% of the proceeds to during the entire month of December. The book has an inspirational pro-life message and we and we want to support a pro-life cause.

 “I joined with (cancer survivor) and mother of nine, Theresa Thomas to write Big Hearted: Inspiring Stories From Everyday Families,” Patti told me. “This collection of 22 stories is a recipe for happiness and love for families of any size.  We've included some of our own stories including how my family came to include 2 AIDS orphans from Kenya.  Big Hearted is a glimpse inside the struggles and joys of ordinary families with generous hearts.”

Big hearts that welcome life are not just in large families. Sometimes big-heartedness comes as the family deals with a tragedy such as miscarriage, infertility, alcoholism or financial devastation regardless of family size. “When a family opens its collective heart to love one another fully, there is no end to the gifts that God will bestow,” Patti said.
