Back on Halloween, I was at EWTN and recorded episodes for two shows. At Home with Jim and Joy went live later that week. EWTN Bookmark just went live recently. I was really impressed by Doug Keck’s preparation. You can’t really see it on the episode, but he had bookmarked and highlighted parts of the book. I really appreciate preparation as it lets us go in depth and not just repeat the same surface level stuff again.
Doug has an autistic son himself, and he said that he really found a lot of connections in the book with his experience. His son’s preference for schedules got him praying the rosary every day.
Doug Keck is a great interviewer. I felt comfortable and things came out well.
I hope this episode of EWTN Bookmark reaches many people and helps them see the beauty of autism, and the beauty of prayer in our connection with God.
