Within the pages of Michael Foley’s new book, Reverend Mom - The Words and Wisdom of Reverend Audrey B. Foley, ($14.99, paperback, 9781498448246) readers will discover the story of one woman's commitment to accept and address both the personal and cultural challenges of her times in order to make a difference in the quality of life around her. Foley pens the voice of his mother – heartfelt sermons – words and wisdom of Jesus Christ that she made real and meaningful in modern times. Throughout Reverend Audrey B. Foley’s life, she overcame struggles and managed to teach herself, her sons, her students, and her congregation how to cross the bridge – between intellect and self- interest – to Christianity and the Bible. She empowers each person with critical thought and the faith to follow through with Christian actions. Her premise: In order to BE a Christian, you have to ACT like a Christian.
“I hope readers will enjoy my mother’s story and use the insight and strength of her sermons to bring themselves closer to God when they need it most,” states the author. “That's what she does and that's what I'd like to help her continue to do. It's a true story that proves love begets love.”
Michael Foley is the son of "Reverend Mom." He can say, "I knew her when." He witnessed her remarkable transition from "Mom" to "Reverend". The letters in the book are communications between Foley and his Mom over decades – many of which are answers to specific questions. As a writer, Foley has been writing prose, poetry and songs since he began to write. The groundwork of his writing is the Bible combined with his mother’s love and commitment to reading. His first published work was a song, recorded and released in 1966 with more on the way.
