An Orphan in the House of God

“Jesus said: “Unless you become childlike, you cannot grasp the kingdom of God…” In “An Orphan in the House of God,” Craig Daliessio shares the intimate details of growing up in a dysfunctional, chaotic family and his desperate attempt to reach out to a God he didn’t understand. As he entered adulthood, he came to realize that a spirit of orphanage was keeping him trapped and unable to experience the childlike faith and joy that Jesus taught. After years of hurtful relationships with his parents and others close to him, Craig came to understand that God’s love is beyond what even the best mom or dad has ever shown their child.

"An Orphan in the House of God" show us the way out of the orphanage, and into the arms of our loving Father. "
