Finding God in Your Family

By Mary Kretzmann

Part I

Chapters 1-6 were written over the course of a few years, up to about the the year 2004.  Newer chapters are now being added in 2009

Table of Contents:
First, An Introduction: “A Family Journey In Light”


I started writing this blog  in 2009, but these ideas have been part of our family’s devotional life all along.   Having this website inspires me to take the time to write.   Please note that each new chapter can stand on it’s own, or within this framework of the book. This section was written for an online audience, and links are provided for extra inspiration and resources.

1) Sunday Science, Religion, and Family:
2) Spiritual Seasons, and Easter
3) Sacred Exits, East and West:
Paramhansa Yogananda and Jesus Christ

    Thanks, Mary, for telling me about your site. I just finished navigating it and will start reading your book next chance I get. I enjoyed reading the story about Psalm 91 and “Life Begins”.

    I received this as an e-mail from a member of the healing prayer council. Each note encourages me in the writing process – so thank you!

    Dear Mary,

    I read part of the book last night. I am now catching up with emails, I have had to travel for two weddings.

    I wanted to send a quick email to tell you how inspired I am already. You really are a gifted writer.. Your words allow me to imagine the setting & be completely immerse in the stories. Thank you. I intend to finish it tonight.

    I hope this book will the first of many to come.
