Do we make too much of our day-to-day problems? In the big scheme of things how important can they be? Award-winning storyteller Valerie Schultz answers these questions through deeply touching—and sometimes provocative—personal accounts of family, career, addiction, alienation, romance, aging, and loss. With compassion and honesty Schultz retraces the passages of ordinary life, finding grace and the presence of God in those she loves and those she struggles to love.
Valerie Schultz is the author of two previous books: Overdue: A Dewey Decimal System of Grace and Closer: Musings on Intimacy, Marriage, and God. Her work has also appeared in Give Us This Day, America magazine, and in her regular column for The Bakersfield Californian. She and her husband Randy have four children and three grands.
