Item Description...
Overview
When families are faced with crises and challenges- unemployment, the untimely death of a family member, natural disasters and chronic illnesses- those who seem to weather the crisis best are often those who have an active spiritual dimension to their lives together. And in times of joy and celebration families with strong spiritual lives rejoice in deeper and more wondrous ways. But what exactly is it that characterizes faith and spirituality in family life? Identifying resilience, strength, and faith in the stories of all kinds of families, Sacred Stories of Ordinary Families motivates readers to think about how faith shapes their own family lives. Drawn from Diana R. Garland's extensive interviews with 110 families, this book includes stories from ordinary families whose lives together both reveal and rely on extraordinary faith.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Importance of Story  Sep 6, 2007
Having read Robert McKee's "Story" (Great must-read, by the way, I can say that Diana Garland has captured the importance of "story" and understands the value and importance of passing down family stories. McKee writes that people have an instiable appetite for stories and who would not want to know the stories of our own families--how they got to the place where they are today, what they had to overcome, the values that were clarified by the choices they made.

I always admire real researchers, like Diana Garland, who go through the painstaking process of interviewing people and creating clarity from chaos and turn it into a story. Like bees collecting pollen, Diana has collected interviews and turned them into a wonderful and meaningful story.
