"Delicious, encouraging stories."

"No preaching here, just delicious, encouraging stories. Just what the doctor ordered to keep the worries away and welcome every day as the best day of your life."

Rabbi Charles S. Scherman, Syracuse, New York

"Reassure[s] us that we're not alone."

"Fr. Champlin's wisdom is delivered in a conversational format that is designed to help us see God in the everyday stories of our lives. His reflections on the contemporary human experience reassure us that we're not alone, that God is right there, in the day-to-day details."

Joel Delmonico, Vice President
