God has a special mission for each of us! With engaging prose and delightful illustrations, I'm a Saint in the Making reminds children of their unique call from God to live with mission and love.

By recounting the highlights of the stories of both well-known and newer saints (including John Paul II, Mary MacKillop, Augustus Tolton, Teresa of Calcutta, Juan Diego and Chiara Badano) in relatable lessons, the book helps readers learn that there is no one single way to live a life of sanctity.

I'm a Saint in the Making offers simple but impactful suggestions for ways children can offer acts of prayer, service, and love.

Resources for parents, teachers, and caregivers at the end of book provide support for adults as they seek to encourage and accompany their young saints in the making.


"I'm a Saint in the Making is a lovely book that makes the universal call to holiness come alive for today's kids. With concrete, kid-friendly examples, colorful illustrations, and a great mix of saints old and new, Lisa Hendey and Katie Mitchell Broussard remind us that holy people come in many shapes and sizes, and we're all called to join their ranks." -Colleen Carroll Campbell, author of The Heart of Perfection, My Sisters the Saints, and The New Faithful

"THIS! This is the way we should be talking with our kids about vocation. Vocation is not something unusual reserved for an elite. It's for each and every one of us. God has a plan for every life, and all those plans are vitally important to the Church. Vocation talk is failing today because it misses the point that is front and center in Lisa Hendey's book. May this book reach many homes and many hearts." -Mike Aquilina, author, Love in the Little Things: Tales of Family Life

"Lisa Hendey has done it again! She has written a wonderful book that introduces children to the most important subject in the world-becoming a saint. Her latest effort shows kids why everyone is called to be a saint. More importantly, it inspires them to actually desire sanctity by connecting them in a fun way to the heroic legacy of past saints. Finally, this new book gives children some very practical ways they can serve those around them who are in need. Thus, it has the power to truly transform the world-by helping transform the children of the world into the future heroes of the Church." -Anthony DeStefano, Bestselling author of Christian books for adults and children
