The world hates Christ and His Church more than ever, and many Catholics are weary of the battle, often unwilling to undergo the real and painful consequences of taking a public stand for the Faith. This weariness has led some parents to close their eyes to the accelerating moral chaos that threatens to sweep away our children.\r\n\r\nTo be sure, a good portion of this “slumber” by Catholic parents is more like paralysis, the result of an unspoken fear. Parents are secretly afraid of what will become of their children in an increasingly merciless and perverse society; they don’t know if their children can withstand the pressures and temptations that surround them; some even wonder if there is a way around the cross—a way for their children to please both Christ and the world.\r\n\r\n“After all,” they rationalize, “doesn’t God want my children to be happy? To make a good living? To thrive in the world?”\r\n\r\nConfusion, complacency, and fear cause even faithful parents to sleep through the war that wages around us and targets our children’s souls.\r\n\r\nIt is high time to awake for battle, and Kimberly Begg has met us with a herald of trumpets! In Unbreakable, Begg equips and challenges parents to fulfill their duties to God by setting their children’s hearts on fire for Christ. The stories in this book are important and compelling. They will leave parents and children awestruck and eager to serve as soldiers for Christ in our own troubled and dangerous times.\r\n\r\nIn addition, this book reinforces a critical lesson for modern parents: to whatever crosses we are called, we are not asked to do anything the saints before us have not also done, knowing Christ has gone before us all.\r\n\r\nThrough the simple genius of Unbreakable, Begg has provided something refreshing and invaluable to anxious Catholic parents everywhere: not only the clarity of truth and faith but also the inspiration to have courage and confidence to back it up.”\r\n\r\nAnd it does deliver on that. I was using adaptive technology and listening to the book when I picked up my youngest two children from music. They are 15 and 13, when they heard Joan of Arc mentioned they asked if we could keep listening. They have both asked about reading the book now. Just a few lines as they got to the car captured their attention. \r\n\r\nThe opening words of the book are:\r\n\r\n“Catholic parents have long sought to raise saints. We bring our children to Mass, prioritize the sacraments, and teach them to be Christ-like in their interactions with others. Many of us send our children to Catholic schools and cultivate friendships with Catholic families. We give our children a foundation of faith, which we hope and pray is strong enough to resist the unholy temptations outside our homes.\r\n\r\nThe world that awaits our children is remarkably different than the one today’s parents encountered when they left their childhood homes. It’s a world that not only glorifies sin but also demands universal and unequivocal celebration of sin. While the ridiculing of Christians has gone on for decades, the “canceling” of believers as “haters,” disqualified from friendships, jobs, and other opportunities, is new.\r\n\r\nTo prepare our children, we must seek to raise not only saints but martyrs—young men and women strong enough to rejoice in the blessings promised by Jesus in Matthew 5:10–12: “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you.”\r\n\r\nParents need to be intentional about cultivating moral courage in their children to prepare the next generation of Christians to stand up for their faith amidst the hostility of an increasingly atheistic and antagonistic culture.”\r\n\r\nThis book would be a great read for Catholic parents, grandparents, and educators. But the lessons outlined, and the examples given are ones that any Catholic could benefit from. There is much from the 14 saints highlighted that we could strive to emulate and grow in likeness to. \r\n\r\nI was familiar with all but one of the saints held up as examples in this volume. Many are among my personal favourites, or that I have specific devotion to. The volume is incredibly well researched. But it is not just an academic work. It is a practical guide. It is a volume that will change lives. It is written in a clear and concise manner. The examples flow nicely from one to another. And it is a volume that I can easily recommend to any Catholic parent!","date":"Oct 30th 2023"},{"name":"April S","rating":"5","title":"Fantastic Look at Saints","text":"What a fabulous groups of saints!\r\n\r\nUnbreakable by Kimberly Begg is geared toward parents to help them teach their children about the saints.

In the battle for our children’s souls, Catholic parents have a key advantage over the world: our families are destined for heaven. God willed us to exist now—in a world that celebrates sin as virtue and punishes Christians as “haters”—as part of His saving plan. In His abundant generosity, He confers on all His children the power to know, love, and serve Him. But His plan requires our participation. To spend eternity with Him in heaven, we must answer His call, now. 

Unbreakable is a resource designed to help Catholic parents raise children who are strong enough to resist the soul-endangering temptations to “get along” with and “get ahead” in the world. Recognizing that what occupies our children’s imagination is of profound importance, this book tells the stories of four of the Church’s most courageous saints—Saint Joan of Arc, Saint José Luis Sánchez del Río, Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko, and Saint Teresa of Calcutta—and the ten saints who inspired them during their lives, including Saint Michael the Archangel, Saint Juan Diego, Saint Maximilian Kolbe, and Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, among others. 

Written for modern parents, Unbreakable continues a long tradition of helping families build a Christ-centered culture in their homes that can be passed on for generations.

“The battle for our children’s souls is as real and relentless as it is winnable. Evil is no match for God’s children who truly know who they are and why they were made. Written to be a resource for Catholic parents, Unbreakable tells the fascinating stories of saints—including one of my pro-life heroes, St. Teresa of Calcutta—who courageously embraced their calling in the world by drawing on the inspiration of their favorite saints. My message to Catholic parents is this: keep a copy of this powerful book in your home library and pass it on to your children when they become parents.”

"Unbreakable is as beautifully written as it is spiritually profound. Kimberly Begg has written a must-read for parents to help us introduce our children to fourteen inspirational saints—all at the service of raising children to desire sanctity. My wife and I will be using this book with our kids. Warmly recommended."

“We know that like attracts like, and sanctity in one often overflows to others. This is why history is filled with saints who knew and loved each other in life: Peter and Paul, Cosmos and Damian, Monica and Augustine, Francis and Clare, Theresa of Avila and John of the Cross. The list goes on. What Kimberly Begg shows in Unbreakable, however, is that the friendship of saints often crosses the divide of death, with saintly men and women still on earth drawing inspiration as well as intercession from saints already in heaven who, no doubt, waited for the pilgrims to join them in paradise. Begg's book encourages every pilgrim pursuing holiness to be inspired by the true friendship we can have with the saints even now as we long to join them in the eternal happiness of God.”

"Unbreakable is a modern spiritual treasure for parents. Beautifully written, fast paced, and deeply moving, the book presents stories of great heroes and heroines of the faith. The text springs from Begg's own deep faith, evident on every page, and she urges us to see the nature of spiritual parenthood: become a saint, because saints give rise to saints!"
