As I sat to write this post, it occurred to me that, with Father's Day being just around the corner, this was the perfect post to start the month. I hadn't planned it that way, but I'm never surprised when things fall into perfect order. I've known Karina Fabian for several years now and have always enjoyed her writing. When this book was about to go on tour, I knew I'd want to share it with everyone--even though this is completely different than Ms. Fabian's previous works.
Karina Lumbert Fabian was born into the Catholic faith, but truly grew to love it as an adult. A busy mother of four, she finds her strongest encounters with God's love happen in the ordinary events of the day-to-day. Karina started her writing career with diocesan newspapers but has settled into writing fun-filled fantasy and science fiction that nonetheless incorporates the principles of faith-filled living.
The writing team of Deacon Steve Lumbert and Karina Lumbert Fabian only began with Why God Matters, but the father-daughter team has been running strong for over 40 years. Steve is a former Colorado State Trooper and Associate Director of Deacon Formation. Karina gave up an career as an Air Force Officer to have children and write books, stories and articles. Both came to love the Catholic faith in different ways--Karina being born into it; Steve as a convert. While they've not collaborated much on writing, they have created many things together, from costumes for Karina's high school plays to basements.
