So says the man in the mirror on those days when he just wants to hang out with his buddies and sip good bourbon or sit on the couch and watch an action movie. "Snap out of it." This internal dialogue isn't foreign to most husbands or dads - including the eight regular guys who share their stories in The Joys and Challenges of Family Life: Catholic Husbands and Fathers Speak Out. They've all dealt with the tough, crazy, scary, fun, and always humbling aspects of being a husband and dad in the twenty-first century, including: fatherhood for the first time (or lots of times), infertility, raising kids in the faith, technology and family life, the porn war, and much more. Hang out with these men and find out how they are navigating all the stuff that makes up family life in contemporary society with the help of their Catholic faith.
