 General Description:

"Timothy E. O'Connell has written a gem of a book for parents as well as for those adults who care about children. With humor, insight, and a strong sense of Christian values, he engages the reader with an exploration of what it means to educate children to be morally responsible and happy human beings. No condescension here; no pious platitudes; no hard-sell prescriptions for fixing up what is wrong with families. Instead, the author lures us to reflect on the beauty and power of simple, everyday interactions of adults and children. Through sharing stories from his own experience, he helps us to notice the moments of grace in our own lives. This is a book that is simply profound and it is a joy to read."
- Gloria Durka, Ph.D., Professor of Religious Education and Family Ministry, Fordham University.

Timothy E. O'Connell, Ph.D., is a professor of pastoral studies at Loyola University in Chicago. A specialist in ethics and values, he has taught college and graduate students for more than 25 years. A widely known author and speaker, Dr. O'Connell has written eight books and more than 50 articles. "Uncle Tim," as his nieces and nephews refer to him, also loves to swim and play tennis, and, most especially, to putter in his garden. His home in Chicago boasts a large perennial garden designed to offer blooms from April until October, and to leave behind an array of interesting foliage as an antidote to the long Midwestern winters.
