Our young people need guidance and encouragement on their paths of discipleship. With each generation faith is becoming less of a priority, needless to say, planting and nurturing the seeds of faith is very important. Julie Kelly offers her second book aimed at touching young hearts and lives!

Clare, a fictional character in the recently published book “The Costly Cookie Chronicles: A Young Heart Discovers the Face of Christ,” written by cradle Catholic Julie Kelly, helps young people understand their journey of faith better.
For a lot of people the rosary can be boring. I wanted to explore the idea of why from the perspective of a child,” Kelly said. “If we enter deeply into the why behind the rosary, the why behind every prayer, the absolute joy of meditating on the life of Christ at Mary’s side … it gives us a deeper openness with Mary our mother.”
Most of the 191-page book centers on the mysteries of the rosary, attaching each with a struggle or emotion, like obedience, that Clare is going through in her family.
