It is my hope that the twenty personal stories and reflections contained in this book might bring you laughter at a time you feel forlorn, comfort when you are overburdened with the challenges of daily living, tears of joy when certain words you read or images they generate resurrect thoughts of those you loved and lost, greater appreciation for the gift of life, zeal for the salvation of your soul, and an increased desire to give to God and those He created what He and they deserve.
What others have said about the book:

"entertaining and often thought-provoking."

".[these] short stories are brimming with love."


"easy to read and easy to understand, but profound in its message."

"quick read that sings the praises of our Catholic faith in an easy-to-read style.."

"It warmed my heart!"

"quick read and pretty enjoyable."

"includes humor, common sense, and a sense of the eternal."

"author is entertaining and insightful in his writing."
