Local Catholic writer featured in national publication.
Eugene, Ore. – January 10, 2012 – Area writer David Ozab recounts his path to the Catholic Church in the latest issue of Catholic Digest. Ozab’s story is featured in this month’s “Open Door,” a recurring column featuring true first-person stories about individuals who have joined the Church or recovered their lost Catholic faith.
In “A garage sale treasure brought me to the Church,” Ozab talks about the long path he followed, guided by a picture of the Sacred Heart he found between the pages of an old book.
“Conversion can be a sudden, earth shattering event,” says Ozab, “like St. Paul on the way to Damascus, or it can be a process that last many years. God led me down the longer road.”
Ozab’s writing has been featured in Chicken Soup for the Soul and Errant Parent. He is currently writing his first book, A Smile for Anna, which tells the story of his daughter’s life from the womb to about age four, including her cleft diagnosis and surgery, her difficulties with speech, and her incredible outgoing spirit through it all.
Ozab is a guest contributor at MyEugene and a member of the Mid-Valley Chapter of Willamette Writers. He is a stay-at-home dad who blogs about parenting and life at FatherhoodEtc.com and his writing career at davidozab.com.
