About the Author:
Sr. Mary Martha Moss, FSP spent her childhood years in Louisiana riding horses and reading books, her two great passions. Confirmation classes opened up for her the reality of a relationship with Jesus as well as the joy and strength that comes from prayer.
Since joining the Daughters of St. Paul in 1977 she has discovered how infinitely rich God is in mercy and how beautiful it is to serve him. She has shared life and faith with others through the Pauline mission of evangelization through service in and management of Pauline Books & Media Centers in New York, California, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Massachusetts; faith and media workshops; vocation retreats and presentations; faith formation for young adults; and writing for children.
Sr. Martha, who has a master's degree in Religious Education from Boston College, currently serves as Director of Marketing and Sales for Pauline Books & Media. Her hope is that My Baptism Remembrance Book will give children and their parents an experience of what Baptism means and how much God is part of their lives
