While I was on tour, I needed to talk about my books, but now that I’m off, I can talk about someone else’s book!
At the recommendation of a friend I read Adam: God’s Beloved by Henri Nouwen. This is a true story of a Catholic priest in Canada who is assigned to take care of a group of disabled adults. Nouwen, who wrote more than 40 books and taught at Notre Dame, Yale and Harvard, becomes friends with a man who is totally dependent on others. Being a caregiver myself, I found Henri and Adam’s story uplifting and encouraging. His life with Adam becomes so simple and yet so meaningful.
I know I have readers who are also blessed with special children, so I wanted to share this treasure. Reading the reviews of Adam: God’s Beloved his many other books are similar to this one, but it is so wonderful to find a positive message in the challenges we face every day.
