'Love is patient,
but I'm not!'

If you can relate, this book is for you!

You've heard me talk about love before... but not like this. In my revealing, new book, I reflect on the topic of love and relationships through the lens of my own personal experience. If you've ever wondered what to do with that deep cry of your heart to love and be loved, read this book.

Love Is Patient, but I'm Not was inspired by Pope Francis' apostolic exhortation The Joy of Love (Amoris Laetitia) and his beautiful meditation on St. Paul's famous "Hymn to Love" ("Love is patient, love is kind...") in 1 Corinthians 13. In short chapters, I take you line by line through the passage, sharing some intimate aspects of my own faith journey, my wound of perfectionism, my challenges as a husband and father, and the ups and downs as I struggle to work it all out. My hope is you'll realize that we aren't the only ones who find it hard to live out the love St. Paul describes for us. But our wounded hearts can be transformed by opening to God's unconditional love and mercy.

Interspersed throughout the book are short prayers and questions for reflection designed to help you open your heart to God and experience his unconditional, merciful love more fully. Read this book for a dose of spiritual encouragement and for a real-life look at what it means to live the joy of love.
