I haven’t read it, but Randy is a friend of mine: and I’ve read the review by Deacon Mike Bickerstaff from our parish. Randy and Deacon Mike have dedicated their lives — BUSY, family-work-filled lives! – to helping us all live out our Faith more authentically. They co-founded the Integrated Catholic Life blog/website which has over 100,000 followers from around the world. They created the Atlanta Catholic Business Conference, which presents a stellar line-up of speakers each year. They have an active social media presence with fans that help them spread their message.

Randy has written several books: Find them all at Integrated Catholic Life or RandyHain.com

Landed!: Proven Job Search Strategies
The Catholic Briefcase: Tools for Integrating Faith and Work
Along the Way: Lessons for an Authentic Journey of Faith
Something More: The Professiona’s Pursuite of a Meaningful Life
and now, Journey to Heaven: A Road Map for Catholic Men

Deacon Mike’s Review:

There is an exchange between Alice and the Cheshire Cat in Lewis Carroll’s, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, that is very evocative of one or more of life’s greatest philosophical questions.

“‘Cheshire Puss,’ she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider. ‘Come, it’s pleased so far,’ thought Alice, and she went on. ‘Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’

“‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat.

“‘I don’t much care where—’ said Alice.

“‘Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,’ said the Cat.

“‘—so long as I get SOMEWHERE,’ Alice added as an explanation.

“‘Oh, you’re sure to do that,’ said the Cat, ‘if you only walk long enough.’”

This exchange is often paraphrased and attributed to Carroll as, “If you do not know where you are going, any road will take you there.”

Maybe Yogi Berra said it best (also paraphrased), “If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll probably end up someplace else!”

Do you know where you are going in life?

Do you have a plan?

Have you laid out your route on a map and checked on your progress lately?

If you are a Catholic man who wants practical help to live a deeper faith and to have a stronger relationship with Christ — or you know someone that fits this description — Randy Hain’s fifth book, Journey to Heaven – A Road Map for Catholic Men (Emmaus Road Publishing), is a must-read.

      • Hi Number 9. I am also a Catholic Alcoholic. I live in Latin America. I don”t want to drink anymore. We have very few AA meetings here. I am so sick and tired of being a slave to alcohol. I love your posts and your inspiration. My biggest fear is that I have not hit rock bottom, yet. In all the AA meetings I’ve been to, they quit drinking when they hit “rock bottom”. I don’t want to. It’s scary. Thank you so much for your blog. God Bless you and INRI. : )
