“Susan Katz Miller has created a way for interfaith families to embark on a joyful journey of discovery. As part of an interfaith family for over 25 years, (Muslim, Jewish, UU) I know that stories of family histories are crucial to understanding who we are today. This journal will become a part of your family's story for many years to come.” —Aisha Hauser, MSW
“A brilliantly original, practical approach to interfaith family building that combines structure with flexibility, common sense with spiritual depth. This book will become a lifelong companion.” —M.H.P. Rosenbaum, co-author, Celebrating Our Differences: Living Two Faiths in One Marriage; Director, Dovetail Institute for Interfaith Family Resources
“Having spent my rabbinate working to support interfaith couples, I can think of no better gift than a tangible way to communicate about how to navigate two different backgrounds in one home. This will be an invaluable resource for clergy and wedding officiants and a beautiful resource to offer so many couples before their wedding and as they begin their marriage.” —Rabbi Ari Moffic, founder of Cohere
“The Interfaith Family Journal is a wonderfully inventive and engaging resource for families blessed with more than a single faith tradition. More than this, its value reaches far beyond the ‘interfaith’ issue. It is a tool for clarifying a family’s aims for religious, spiritual and cultural meaning in their lives—and helping a family to tailor its life accordingly. It is pitch perfect for all 21st century families.” —Sheila C. Gordon, PhD, President and Founder, Interfaith Community, Inc.
“As the child of an interfaith family, partner in an interfaith marriage, and co-director of an interfaith arts community, I’ve found that most questions of difference are to be lived rather than solved. In this guide, Susan Katz Miller equips us with creative tools and courageous tactics to do just that.” —Rev. Erik W. Martínez Resly, Founder and Co-Director, The Sanctuaries
“Susan Katz Miller is a pioneer on multi-religious belonging and our wise guide in the realm of non-binary faith. Miller's comprehensive, yet accessible blueprint empowers interfaith families and individuals in preserving, sustaining, and growing complex, beautiful religious and spiritual identities in the modern world. The Interfaith Family Journal is the gold standard map on this path.” —J. Dana Trent, professor of World Religions and author of Saffron Cross: The Unlikely Story of a How a Christian Minister Married a Hindu Monk
“Susan Katz Miller has created a glorious and indispensable workbook for interfaith families navigating their collective spiritual life. She guides family partners through a series of smart journaling exercises that will help them see what would nourish them most thoroughly in the spiritual dimension and how to change and grow gracefully in that path. As someone who writes and teaches about how to create powerful personal and family rituals, I’m deeply impressed with the way she emphasizes tradition and helps families assess how to amplify and expand their own. She gets to this by explicit questions like: ‘On which religious or secular holidays would you expect to exchange gifts in your household?’ This journal is a flexible tool and true treasure for multi-faith families of all varieties.” —Meg Cox, author of The Book of New Family Traditions: How to Create Great Rituals for Holidays & Every Day
