Title: Why God Matters: How to Recognize Him in Daily Life

Author: Karina Lumbert Fabian and Deacon Steven Lumbert

My Review:

Why God Matters-How to Recognize Him in Daily Life by Karina Lumbert Fabian and Deacon Steven Lumbert is a Catholic living story filled with life journeys shared by this daughter and father duo. Why God Matters reminds us to draw faith from the ordinary daily life and through shared family experiences.

Initially, I was a bit reluctant to read this book because as a former Catholic, I was afraid that it would be an attempt to convert me back to Catholicism. I have read many Catholic based books in the past and after much ancient theology, I was unable to take from those books and apply it to my life.

After reading this book, I am pleased to write there is no an attempt to “convert” but it is a profession of faith. Furthermore, this is the most “real” Catholic story that I have ever read. As a Christian, I was able to appreciate the authors’ words of faith as they have experienced it throughout their lives. I especially enjoyed reading the “Life Lessons” that accompanied each Chapter and was able to reflect inwardly and devote time to prayer and contemplation. Their words seek to encourage others to find a deeper relationship with God. Why God Matters is an excellent read for those seeking to appreciate the very ordinary blessings in our daily lives.

Why God Matters proudly displays the Catholic Writers Guild Seal of Approval. I would recommend this book to any person of faith, regardless of denomination.

I received a copy of this book to review but I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations while reading this novel.*
