What is Becoming Holy?

Becoming Holy, One Virtue at a Time is no ordinary self-help book.

This book helps you reach for the heights by seeking virtue as a means of loving God and growing closer to him in your daily life.

It encourages you to embrace your call to holiness and your vocation to become a Saint.

You don’t have to be perfect, you just have to be faithful to the journey.

“Becoming Holy, One Virtue at a Time,” will help you keep your eyes on heaven every step of the way.

Meet the Author

Author, Sara Estabrooks, knows what it’s like to live a busy life.

Sara is a Catholic mom.

She lives the stay-at-home, homeschooling life, and is involved in online ministry and evangelization from home.

Sara has discovered: you don’t need to give up your desire to be a Saint just because you feel so “ordinary.”

And she wants to share the journey toward sainthood with you!

What does holiness mean?

“You see, holiness isn’t just for holy cards and halos.

It’s not a still life picture of perfection. Holiness is for the person who marches her way forward every moment of this life, striving for heaven with all her might, with the grace of God to uphold her.

It’s for the woman who fights and falls and gets back up again. It’s for the woman who never gives up in spite of all her shortcomings, because of her great love for God.

Holiness is for saints.

And that means you.”

Sara Estabrooks, in Becoming Holy, One Virtue at a Time

One way Sara seeks holiness is through education and practice in the virtues.

  • What are the virtues?
  • Where do they come from?
  • How do we get them?
  • What would they look like in your life?

In Becoming Holy, One Virtue at a Time, Sara will introduce you to the Theological and Cardinal Virtues – the building blocks for a life of sanctity.

Drawing on the guidance of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and God’s Word to us in the Scriptures, you will embark on a journey of seeking virtue and pursuing sainthood in the place in life you find yourself right now.

Do you love to journal?

Becoming Holy is more than a book – it’s a Scripture Study and a journal. It leads you through reflections on the virtues, ulitilizing both real life experiences and wisdom from the Bible.

It has reflection questions that help you ponder the virtues and how to put them into practice in your life.

Whether you read Becoming Holy by yourself, with a friend, or with a supportive group of Catholic women, you are sure to love this opportunity to practice the theological and cardinal virtues in your life.

This book will help you discover your call to holiness and realize that you – yes you! – can become a Saint, too.

This book is beautiful!  Proverbs 31 tells us that a virtuous woman is to be prized “far above rubies” and Sara has delivered an easy way for us all to get there. With Scripture and the Catechism as the base, Sara drapes the jewels of  order, clarity, and warmth across the pages and the short, easy-to-read chapters. She, and the book, both sparkle!
