In Clare's Costly Cookie, we listen to the journey of a nine year old girl as she travels into the heart of Jesus leaving her self-love behind. As if that isn't enough, Julie Kelly presents the reader with an astonishingly painless short course in holiness for the child in all of us. Without a doubt, Our Lord is effortlessly catechizing the reader with the turn of each page. Mercifully drawn into Clare's humble heart Our Lord uses her quest for piety as a vehicle to renew ours.
In the second book by Julie Kelly, The Costly Cookie Chronicles, Clare discovers the tender love of Mary, the transforming power of meditating on the life of Jesus through the Rosary, and the joy of contemplating with Mary the face of Christ. In her delightfully candid way, Clare invites readers to walk the narrow road with her to Jesus through Mary.
