About this Blog’s Name
This blog's name was taken from Pope John Paul the Great's Apostolic Exhortation on the Role of Christian Families in the Modern World:
THE ROLE OF THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY
Family, Become What You Are
17. The family finds in the plan of God the Creator and Redeemer not only its identity, what it is, but also its mission, what it can and should do. The role that God calls the family to perform in history derives from what the family is; its role represents the dynamic and existential development of what it is. Each family finds within itself a summons that cannot be ignored, and that specifies both its dignity and its responsibility: family, become what you are.
From time to time I review books here. Sometimes because I want to, other times at the request of authors and/or publishers. When a review is requested by publishers/authors, I receive a gratis copy of the book being reviewed, but no other compensation. Publishers and authors want honest opinions and I will only give honest opinions.
All book reviews are my own opinions ~ good, bad or neutral.
Also, Amazon links found on my site will normally be "associate links". :)
