With his great love for people everywhere and his strong faith, Father Ron Lawson has led a remarkable life. In addition to parish ministry, he served in Desert Storm.

Father Ron Lawson was a Protestant for the first 25 years of his life. While serving with the US Army in Counter-Intelligence in 1959 – 1961, stationed in West Berlin, he felt the undeniable call to the Roman Catholic faith. Baptized and confirmed Catholic in Bavaria, he returned to the US to begin studies in the seminary to become a priest. His spiritual mentor, Maria von Trapp, was instrumental in providing support and encouragement in that journey. He became: a parish priest, high school chaplain, US Army Chaplain serving in Desert Storm, V.A. official and now Senior Priest in Residence.

  Great Read! , 08/29/2010
Reviewer: MJ
On a scale of 1 to 10 this book was an 11! The author is correct, it does read more like fiction than fact. But..... What a wonderfully entertaining book about a man who is a patriot, a good citizen, a wonderful friend to so many and a believer in our Lord while having a bit of a rascal in him. God Bless!

  Terrific book , 09/19/2010
Reviewer: Gale & Fred Whittemore
In each of our lives, we can count on one hand the folks who have, by merely being themselves, given us direction, support and friendship. Often they don't even know it. Ron is an "good ole" friend from school days; was a leader then, and although we thought we knew him, it is this book that has rounded out the wonderful personality with all the parts of his life that he couldn't always share. We loved him then, and love him even more now. ........and he is not through!!!!!!!! God speed, Ron, from Fred and Gale

  Truly a light to be enjoyed! , 10/18/2010
Reviewer: Frank K. Porter Jr.
Father Ron Lawson is truly a light to be enjoyed. His light reflects the passion of a life lived for God through the witness to others. God favored him with the guidance he asked for in doing His will. This is a wonderfully written account of a wonderful, faithful priest, Mary’s priest. An excellent read for all, not just for those seeking answers, in the midst of their own life’s vocation. Father Ron asked, sought and found exactly what he was looking for. Truly blessed, may God so bless the rest of us.
