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!"
