In 2013 Nativity Press introduced Julie’s first book, Clare’s Costly Cookie: A Young Heart Discovers the Way of Love. In this book Clare, a nine-year old thunderbolt in pigtails, joyfully invites children to experience her transformation from a strong-willed, self-absorbed child to a faithful follower of Jesus. With grace and courage she offers to Him the most meaningful gift she possibly can: her self-will.
Clare models for children that following Jesus Christ and striving for true holiness are worth any cost. With spirit and spunk she demonstrates for young readers that living the holy Catholic faith is not only exciting, but better than gooey, warm chocolate chip cookies!
“What Julie is contributing with her book is the fostering of a personal and prayerful relationship between the child and God with the character of simplicity and spontaneity. This little book, manifesting a succession of childlike dialogues with God in total simplicity and trust, will help the children of our time to take the habit to pray throughout the day…”
