The Creed

It’s my privilege to count Scott Hahn as a friend. As I recount in my new book, How God Hauled Me Kicking and Screaming Into the Catholic Church, Scott will always have my gratitude for the day he pulled a rosary out of his pocket and handed it to me. At the time, I didn’t even know what it was. Warning: If you’re not Catholic and want to stay... [Read more...]

The Kiss of Jesus

Holy people are made, not born. Such is the case with a woman I am privileged to count as a friend, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle. I first met Donna-Marie when I was but a lowly, first-time author with absolutely no idea how to promote my new book Faith at Work. Donna-Marie’s gracious intercession and encouragement during this time period was, and... [Read more...]

Praying for Prodigals

You meet the nicest people while blogging. A great example of this happened just recently. After posting the last installment of my Workplace Witnesses article, I received a very gracious note from a reader who said she liked the section on freewill. She offered to send me her book that deals, among other things, with this topic. I wrote back, and offered... [Read more...]

Catholic Mom’s Café

I admit it: I was a little reluctant about this book review. The problem is, I’m not a mom. What can I possibly say about a book that targets mothers? It’s not like I have any experience with the subject matter. I’m a guy. So my experience is 100% vicarious. Actual experience, 0%. When I received the review copy in the mail, I didn’t even... [Read more...]

More Must-Read Books

Wow, am I ever behind on book reviews. Part of the problem is that so many good books have been released lately. In addition, I’ve been on the road a lot lately with speaking engagements (including a trip to Benedictine College this past week that was an absolute highlight.) So with apologies to the authors, here is a quick list of must-read books... [Read more...]

Something More: An Interview with Randy Hain

In a spirit of full disclosure, I am a Randy Hain fan. As a friend, he has been the source of unfailing encouragement, fellowship, and wisdom. Yet there are many dimensions to the man… Randy is a husband, father, writer, speaker, business leader, and much more. His third book, Something More: The Professional’s Pursuit of a Meaningful Life... [Read more...]

Clement of Rome & the Didache

If a fulfilling career consists of working with terrific people, then I must have one of the greatest jobs on earth. After twenty years in financial and executive roles, it has been my privilege since 2010 to work with The Coming Home Network International (CHNetwork), a Catholic apostolate that helps non-Catholic clergy and laity to come home, and... [Read more...]

Along the Way – An Interview with Randy Hain

Among the countless joys of working with The Coming Home Network is meeting the many wonderful guests on the Journey Home program. In certain blessed cases, these individuals have become good friends – among them, Randy Hain. I first came to know Randy through our mutual friend Tom Peterson of Catholics Come Home, who told me about an extraordinary... [Read more...]

Catholic Family Fun: A Book Review

Sarah Reinhard is a genius. When she approached me about reading her new book, Catholic Family Fun: A Guide for the Adventurous, Overwhelmed, Creative, or Clueless, I thought, “Wow, she wrote a book just for me. I’m clueless.” Yes, I’m a husband and father of eight kids. But family fun doesn’t always come naturally – even (or perhaps especially)... [Read more...]

“Books Change Our Lives”

Matthew Kelly inscribed a book for my son Daniel with the words “Books change lives” a few years back. The hard cover edition of Rediscovering Catholicism: Journeying Toward Our Spiritual North Star just resurfaced yesterday, and I was again struck by his words. I think he’s right. In my efforts to get up-to-date on book reviews, here... [Read more...]
