Testimonials about Seven from Heaven
An outstanding, practical guide for every Catholic parent! Use Seven from Heaven to give your children the greatest gift of all—joyful participation in Christ’s presence every day.
Matthew Kelly, New York Times bestselling author
The timing for this marvelous book couldn’t be better. Elizabeth has given Catholics a real gift as we enter into the Year of Faith and do what we can to help the Church’s efforts in the new evangelization. Seven from Heaven is an example of what Pope Benedict is asking of all believers: to understand our faith more deeply and to proclaim it more effectively from the housetops. The more we know about the Sacraments the more we can all grow in our faith and help others on their journey to heaven. This book is a great resource that can make a real difference in achieving these spiritual goals.
Teresa Tomeo, syndicated talk show host and bestselling Catholic author

Absolutely outstanding! Elizabeth shines light on the essential elements of our Catholic faith, the sacraments, and equips us to more fully integrate them into our family lives. In the pages of this wonderful book, the transformative power of the sacraments is described in practical, relatable terms. A must read for all Catholics family members who need the healing, nurturing and protection the sacraments provide!
Kevin Lowry, husband and father of eight, and author of Faith at Work: Finding Purpose Beyond the Paycheck
Elizabeth’s understanding and unique way of presenting revelational truths from God, concerning the Catholic sacraments, transcends Catholic and Protestant boundaries and differing perspectives and doctrinal views. Any Protestant would be blessed to read this book, setting traditions aside, and asking the Lord to help identify God’s real heart and desire for His people through her wise words that truly help the reader lay hold of His intentions for living relationship with Him and the Body of Christ through encounters that each Catholic sacrament supports.
