This collection of essays and poems invites the reader to contemplate what it means to raise caring children, why we need the wisdom and guidance of mentors, and how we can shape our lives in ways that support our communities. While candid about his fears and doubts, as well as the realities of racism and sexism, the author believes that the answers we seek are present in the people we love.

Gently Between the Words claims that stories are the best prayers, for by speaking and listening with empathy and hope, we can transform hearts and minds, including our own.
