"One of the best Catholic motherhood books I've ever read. I have been recommending this to all my mom friends! Husbands, your wife will be incredibly impressed if you get this as a gift for her."
--Clara the Holy Heroes Guide (and new mom)

 

All at once lively, funny, calming, and complete, The Summa Domestica an indispensable how-to book on making and keeping a home that will serve your family best. 

When Leila Lawler started out as a young wife and then became a mother, she had no idea how to keep a house, manage laundry, or plan and prepare meals, let alone entertain and inspire toddlers and select a curriculum to pass on the Faith.

Cue: hilarious and insightful reflections as Lawler reflects on learning how to be a wife and mother!

The Summa Domestica comprises three volumes: Home Culture, which delves into establishing a home and a vision for raising children; Education, which offers a philosophy for the primary vocation of parents to form their children and give them the means to learn on their own; and Housekeeping, which offers practical details for meals, laundry, and a reasonably clean and organized busy and thriving household.

Beautifully packaged as a 3-volume set, Lawler's writing is organized in short chapters (making it easy to read in small spurts of time) accompanied by endearing illustrations. Not only will you enjoy reading these 3 volumes, but they will be a beautiful addition to your bookshelf.
