On My Bookshelf: Loving Work

loving workI started this great book by Mike Hayes before I went to bed Thursday night at the conference. I finished it on the plane home the next day.

Mike is well known in the blogosphere as the co-founder of Busted Halo. He has a great blog, Googling God. Now, like me, he’s a campus minister. He delivered an excellent presentation at his breakout session. He’s clearly a guy well at home with himself and in his role in the Church. That confidence provides the spirit of this book.

Mike brings an Ignatian education and sensibility to a straight-forward approach to uncovering just what we should be doing with this life God has given us. He peppers six chapters with personal stories of his own work history, and how he was led from a career in broadcasting, to the internet, and from there, to campus ministry and retreats.

If you know a young adult searching for direction along the lines of work, I can’t think of a better book. It will appeal to those who are deeply religious, but will also impact a person not so deeply churchy.

  1. Oh I’m so glad that you liked it! I did, too. And I was honored to provide a blurb for the back cover- my first! Mike is a dear personal friend and someone I truly respect. I was wondering if you two got to meet in FL.

    Thanks for the kind words! See you again soon, I hope.
