Why God Matters

 I just finished reading Why God Matters, a series of stories and meditations by Deacon Steve Lumbert and his daughter, Karina Lumbert Fabian. With frankness and simplicity the authors tell of how God can be found in the very ordinariness of life, in the performance of our daily duties, in every joy and sorrow. Replete with quotes from Scripture, the Catechism and the writings of the saints, the book is not only deeply inspiring but offers a practical guide for organizing one's activities so that there will always be time for prayer. I enjoyed the family stories and feel that I have met the precious lady to whom the book is dedicated, Mrs. Lumbert, Steve's wife and Karina's mother, whose strong faith was passed on to those she loves. How happy she must be to see this short but powerful book which will surely lift many hearts to God. Congratulations!

Elena - thank you for sharing 'Why God Matters' with your blog readers.

Your description of the book's style is spot on. Deacon Steve and Karina write with frankness and simplicity, and it is SO refreshing. The reader isn't left grasping for clarity. You're right, it is a practical guide that is at the same time inspiring.

Best wishes,
