 Our Description

In a culture that is often dark and discouraging, where can parents look for help in raising their children? By profiling ten men and women on their journeys to the priesthood and the convent, award-winning author Susie Lloyd discovered lessons that can be used by any parents who want toraise faithful children. Here are the heartwarming stories of five priests, five nuns, and the parents who raised them to be open to God's call. Lloyd relates some of their joys and setbacks, reveals their guidingprinciples and rallying cries, and passes along tips from the "master" parents. The mother of seven, Lloyd also shares some of her own (often humorous) parenting tales, and she helps readers understand the various dynamics of Catholic family life and the diverse factors that influence a child's decision to say "yes" to God.

A priest who remembers his parents donating a share of their farm's weekly product to a nearby soup kitchen; a nun who can't forget her Buddhist father's success at sharing the beauty of faith; a blind priest raised by a single mother who helped him embrace his disability as a gift: these stories and more show readers that there is no perfect recipe for raising children to embrace a religious vocation. Rather, the secret lies in creating an environment in which children feel free to become who they truly are. Lloyd helps readers understand the various dynamics of Catholic family life and the many different factors that influence a child's decision to pursue the priesthood or religious life and shares from her own experience as the mother of seven.
