"Bloom... The Book needed to raise the next generation of confident, Catholic women..."

What a rewarding experience my daughters and I have had with Bloom. This book has given us the opportunity to grow together in learning about one another, but also an opportunity to grow in appreciation for our faith and the life God gave to us. This was fun, faithful, and fulfilling and I cannot recommend enough! - Teresa K.

Bloom was the perfect book to help transition my daughter from elementary to middle school. It initiates conversations on age appropriate topics and lets me choose how deep to dive into those subjects. We’ve grown together while encountering this easy to read journey. -Kristen M

As a busy mom of 7 kiddos, it's easy to forget how important one-on-one time is. Through my daughter and I reading Bloom, I realize it was the perfect opportunity to replenish our love and appreciation for each other. I marveled at her questions and answers, love learning about the saints, and we always looked forward to the hands on activities at the end of each chapter. I highly recommend this book for every mama and 10-12 year old girl. -Kim S.

Living in today’s society and raising four daughters feels, at times, a daunting task for me, but Bloom is the perfect guide! The preteen and teen years are often such a fragile time for girls, but this book brings up the perfect conversations to help them realize their beauty, worth, feminine genius, and the beauty of our Catholic faith! What a perfect way to strengthen my bond with my daughters as well! -Kathleen B.

We did the activities and loved it. It was very fun having a tangible act of service, activity, or prayer we could pray together. I'm not sure who is growing more in their faith-- my daughter or me. Sarah T.

The questions in Bloom were great starting points to talk about bullies, hygiene, and self-perception...  it was great to hear where my daughter was struggling and have scripture and real-life examples from the Saints to point to for intercessory prayer. Jessica R.

This book is a Diocesan Approved Catholic Resource, read and endorsed by our bishop.

Meet Mom & Daughter

Stacy and Grace Halbach

My daughter, Grace, was the inspiration for writing this book. I wanted to find a resource that would support mother/daughter conversations about becoming faithful, Catholic women.

I wanted Grace to look forward to these conversations. I wanted her to walk away from our time together feeling loved and encouraged. I wanted to make sure we had quality time together and fell deeper in love with Jesus and His plan for our lives.

I truly believe Bloom can do just this for you and your daughter!
