From Internet access to lottery tickets, pet ownership to R-rated entertainment, we’re faced with more ethical decisions than we might realize, every single day. What’s a person to do -- especially when there is no definitive Catholic teaching on a subject? Do we just brush off these pesky moral dilemmas? Do we happily live in the gray areas of life and simply go along with conventional wisdom? Or do we make an honest attempt to face these moral questions head on? The way we deal with these seemingly small ethical decisions can have a huge impact on our own lives as well as those of our children and families. This book is an ethical toolbox, providing you with a process for making confident choices, asking yourself challenging questions, developing moral virtue, and discovering deeper happiness.

“Not only a reliable guide to resolving some of the ethical questions we face in our everyday lives, it is a guidebook to thinking well about decisions that shape our characters.” -- Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University
