"As I read the book and the story of a 30 year marriage coming to an end, it brought back a lot of memories for me. I kept thinking, "Where was a book like this when I was going through my divorce?" I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who is going through divorce, has been through a divorce or anyone who has a friend or loved one going through divorce. The story is told as a fiction story, so very easy to read, and then followed by a powerful study guide. It is perfect for any support groups, book clubs or church organizations." Sandy Lawrence
40-Day Journey with Kathleen Norris
By Kathleen Norris; Edited by Kathryn M. Haueisen
"A wonderful compilation with excerpts from Norris's writings and invitations questions for reflection and journaling, plus short daily prayers. I would highly recommend this book to both fans of and newcomers to Norris. The 40-day format makes it ideal for Lent, but it could be used anytime." Melanie J. Taormina
A Ready Hope - Effective Disaster Ministry for Congregations
Co-authored with Carol Flores who works in the disaster response world helping institutions and faith communities prepare for disasters and clean up after them.
Available at Amazon.
"Haueisen and Flores have added a remarkable new resource to disaster planning for local faith communities. Stressing the importance of preparation and discerning of ministry, especially balanced against infrastructure improvement, A Ready Hope gives a detailed and comprehensive view of how local people face the devastating effects of a disaster. In addition, the book is written in a narrative form...following the steps taken by a fictional church in the midst of a flooded community...that is an absolute page-turner. Just like a compelling novel, you can't put it down. A Ready Hope is a compelling read, a dependable information source and an inspiration for churches, congregations and faith communities." Christy
God in the Raging Waters – Stories of Love and Service Following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
By Bishop Paul Blom; Edited by Kathryn M. Haueisen
Bishop Blom was responsible for the many congregations in Louisiana that suffered major trauma due to these nasty storms that hit the Gulf Coast only weeks apart in 2005. Support poured in from around the country. Available at Amazon.
Natural disasters will never be able to weaken or stop the love of Christ. The unprecedented response of love and support from across the country and blogs are evidence of hope in the midst of destruction, injury, and death. This book should be part of the training for those who are led by the Holy Spirit to respond to disasters. Ron Warren, Bishop Southeastern Synod of the ELCA
