Publisher's Summary

Toddler boys lasso each other with rosaries at family prayer. Dad explains confession by inventing a parable involving dishes and marinara sauce. Mom goes from June Cleaver to drill sergeant in the space of one dinnertime. Or, as Greg and Jennifer Willits explain, just another day in the life of the Catholics next door. With the sparkling wit and humor made famous on their popular SiriusXM radio show, Greg and Jennifer offer insight for every Catholic stumbling toward a more fruitful relationship with God.

A must for any Christian family not just Catholic!

What did you love best about The Catholics Next Door?

I love how Greg and Jennifer can relate to all aspects of the Catholic family. As a father of three I find their guidance encouraging and can't wait to use some of the tips they have to help our family become even closer to the Lord. It is not overbearing at all from the Catholic standpoint, it is just the truth when it comes to the faith. This book will help all even non-catholics get a better understanding of family life and God, something that many American families suffer from a lack of, including my own. The title could attract more readers if it didn't have catholic in there but, and a big but, you can tell after reading it that they did not write it for money, they did not write it for glory. They wrote it like it was a mission handed to them by God to inspire catholic families, but again truth be told, as a convert to the Catholic church I think it would benefit any family desiring to be close to God. This book was recommended by a friend who listens to the show on xm radio. I was very hesitant to buy the book since I just didn't know about them at all, but now I am glad I did. Since I finished it, I now have nothing to listen to going back and forth to work but I plan on getting the XM radio so I can listen to their show! Thank Greg and Jennifer for a piece of work that I can tell you prayed to the holy spirit for guidance on, I hope all families can benefit from your book as I did. When is the next book??

No


What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Catholics Next Door?

It's ok to strive for perfection while we venture through our Catholic (Christian) lives, but to realize that God made us human and to accept our humaness in short comings.


Any additional comments?

Thank you Jennifer and Greg, for your daily radio show on the Catholic channel, this book, and helping us realize the living the faith is a journey... but God has given us a map and a guide.
