Engaging and true-to-life, the 10 short stories in the collection Waking Up Bees vividly portray people who are wrestling with important life issues—love, work, money, suffering, communication, vocation, and more. Written from a young person's viewpoint, the stories offer in-depth material for discussion on the meaning and practice of the Christian life.

The leader's guide contains:

  • suggestions for how to use the stories with young people.
  • background themes and metaphors.
  • questions that help students explore the story and their own experience.
  • references to themes in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
  • cross-references to themes covered in the senior-year religion textbook Creating a Christian Lifestyle.

Customer Reviews

By Heidi Borton, VOYA

Believable characters, smooth narrative, and hopeful endings characterize each story. . . . The author avoids pat answers to complex questions and situations while portraying authentic Christianity. Characters struggle with issues of faith, pray, see God at work in their lives, and grow in understanding in a way recognizable to believers. God is portrayed as loving, faithful, and intimately involved in the lives of his children. With a talent for details recognizable to all readers, Daoust uses simple and humorous language to describe truth.
