In this book of his personal reflections, David helps us to see God in a range of situations that are often funny, sometimes painful, occasionally toe-curlingly embarrassing. Related with characteristically self-deprecating humour, the stories in this volume range from his moving account of visiting war graves in France to the hilarious account of his “Mr Bean in a ballet” moment in California.

“With self-deprecating humour, David tells gentle stories that describe a powerful Spirit at work in his life.” Fr Christopher Jamison OSB

“In this book you are invited to listen to a master storyteller uncover the beauty of ordinary time.” Fr Denis McBride CSsR

“… anyone who reads this book can get to know David, be spiritually uplifted, and feel happy being just as God made them.” Most Reverend Malcolm McMahon, Archbishop of Liverpool

“I am sure this book of reflections will help many in their own following of Jesus Christ.” Right Reverend Mark O’Toole, Bishop of Plymouth

“This is a book from which everyone can benefit, from the seasoned preacher to the tentative inquirer.” Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP

“… the reader is at once charmed and cajoled into seeing differently, thinking differently and acting differently.” Dr Anthony Towey, the Aquinas Centre.
