With vulnerability and transparency, Fr. Stephen Muse draws on his journals of over thirty years, to offer glimpses of parenting as a lifelong spiritual journey. He draws the reader in by sharing stories of wonder, joy, and pain from moments in his life that became divine messages. Part memoir, part catechism and part call to action, readers will discover parenting revealed as a path to salvation, as the author reminds us of the vital importance of relationship with the source of love and life—the Triune God.
Father Stephen welcomes the reader into his home and heart as he shares lessons learned as a father and grandfather. He has a gift for painting a clear picture with his words, and there were more than a few chuckles and episodes of roaring laughter I enjoyed through the stories he told.
I believe Father has the gift of nepsis, or wakefulness, in how he views the events of his daily life. He is attuned to the messages Christ reveals to him through his loved ones. And in through his sharing, the reader hears the messages for her/his own family life - if he/she “has ears to hear and eyes to see!”
Thank you for this sparkling gem of a book for families!
