Everyone looks up to Jerry Windley-Daoust, and not just because he is two meters tall (that’s just about 6' 7" for those still resisting the metric system): he is also the author of more than two dozen books on topics such as Catholic social teaching, family spirituality, and Ignatian prayer. Even more impressively, he spent ten years as a stay-at-home dad for his five children while his wife taught theology at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. He took an MA in pastoral ministry from the same institution, despite submitting a 250-page master’s thesis that his advisor never finished reading. Lately, Jerry has also been writing essays, poetry, novels, and award-winning short stories grounded in Christian hope. You can find him hiking along the Mississippi River with his family on many Sunday afternoons; however, an easier way to track him down would be to find his portfolio website, Windhovering.com, which takes its name from “The Windhover,” a poem by one of his favorite poets, G. M. Hopkins.
