“A moving, poignant story of life, relationships, fears, visions, dreams, joy, sadness, anxiety, hope, and the love of God. I was glued to this book with tears in my eyes: full of joy in my heart. A genius of a work.” by Prof. Corazon Munoz, professor, Capital University, Columbus, Ohio

“I’ve lived in quite a few houses, not many more than I needed, but enough to make me wonder why it was so. it practically took an entire lifetime to inhabit these houses, filling them as it were, with memory and spirit and soul and family. and while all these houses are adequate, not all were entirely meaningful and in fact some were mere roofs over my head, neutral to memory or imagination or both. some were simple outposts but others were more significant in that they were mute witnesses to the maturation and aging of my spirit. i know for a fact that we prayed in all the houses we lived in. and if god dwells in the hearts and praises of those who love him, and if those who love him live out their ways of love for him in their dwellings, then ipso facto, as they say, god must also dwell in their houses. not that god is always palpable, no; it’s only that god is surely always there.” Introduction by the author.
