Gather Round While I Tell You My Stories, book is made up of stories about raising a family, funny tales and some not so funny stories. The family had lots of pets through the years, and loved them all, cats, dogs, and even a pet raccoon. It’s the poignant, personal story of being raised in two homes, where all four parents drank too much. It’s a glimpse into a child’s world of alcoholism, survival, and God’s protection and care when the chips were down. It’s the tragic story of mental illness of one parent, and the effect it had on those close to her. It’s also about finding God in the midst of bad circumstances, and finding peace.  And the last story is of the Hayes, who came out to homestead in Eastern Montana in 1908, and the tragic happenings.
