I have visited over 450 abortion facilities at 40 Days for Life locations around the world.

In my travels, I meet two groups of people: those who want to do something to end abortion, but don't--and those who feel they are not doing enough, but are.

Find out how small, seemingly insignificant acts of love strengthen the family, promote chastity, dignify human life, and prevent women from ever turning up at Planned Parenthood.

"To the Heart of the Matter may be the first-ever public work that articulates what it is to be pro-life in daily living. It's a response that is fresh and integrated and strikingly bold in its simplicity."

Mother Agnes Mary Donovan, Superior General, Sisters of Life

"To the Heart of the Matter gives us a tangible guide on how we can and are winning this battle with the simplicity of doing everything in our life for God. This insightful tool is so needed in our noisy world. "

Ramona Trevino, Former Planned Parenthood manager, wife, mother, and author of Redeemed by Grace

"Carney's work is an important devotional that leads us to recognize the power of prayer, the importance of life, and the call we all have to defend the most innocent among us."

Billy Hallowell, Director of Communications and Content for PureFlix.com

"In 40 short chapters, he provides practical ways for us to create a space for the Lord to live in and through us, thereby making each moment an opportunity to allow the Lord's own love and life to take root in the world."

Sr. Peter Marie Chrismer, Vocation Director for the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia
