In a culture that is often dark and discouraging, where can parents look for help in raising their children? By profiling ten men and women on their journeys to the priesthood and the convent, award-winning author Susie Lloyd discovered lessons that can be used by any parents who want to raise faithful children. Here are the heartwarming stories of five priests, five nuns, and the parents who raised them to be open to God's call.

Lloyd relates some of their joys and setbacks, reveals their guiding principles and rallying cries, and passes along tips from the "master" parents. The mother of seven, Lloyd also shares some of her own (often humorous) parenting tales, and she helps readers understand the various dynamics of Catholic family life and the diverse factors that influence a child's decision to say "yes" to God.
