“A beautiful and inspiring resource for families seeking everyday spiritual practices that shape a life oriented to the love of God. Beautiful poetry, vibrant painting, and wondering questions accompany seven spiritual practices. I greatly appreciate the everyday-ness of this book. Big emotions, tying shoes, eating a meal, and playing outside are all part of a daily life lived in love, a way of love that renews our own lives and has the power to transform a hurting world.”
- Christine V. Hides
“Hutchison invites readers to journal and share their stories of healing. In his own story, Hutchison lovingly describes how he got the idea for The Painting Table activity from his grandmother's kitchen table, a place where he spent much time: he equates childhood memories of preparing colorful vegetables such as summer squash, tomatoes and okra with the vibrant pigments he uses in his work as an artist.”

“I have known Roger as a visual artist. However, I have discovered he is also a dancer - moving effortlessly from Word to words, from image to reflection, and back again.
