Phil and Jackie Solem

Phil and Jackie Solem were in to talk about their life and the book they wrote about it, "Such a Road: Autobiography of a Marriage". Phil was a priest and Jackie was a nun when they met. What impressed me about them was their commitment to their community. How service to a community became a part of who they were as a couple. I also took to heart their take on work. Some time ago they made a commitment to work only 20 hours a week. They were willing to give up monetarily in order to gain spiritually and emotionally.

Tune in to Realgoodwords on Sunday April 27th at 9am for our conversation - or check the Realgoodwords archives. Phil and Jackie will speak on their life at the Grand Rapids Area Library on Tuesday April 29th at 7pm. It is free and open to the public. For information on how to get the book see their website
