  • Two qualities that marked the Chestertons’ marriage (in Gilbert’s own words)
  • Frances’ reaction upon catching Gilbert climbing their 20-foot pergola
  • Major challenges they faced in their marriage (including mixed religions and infertility)
  • Stories from the Chestertons’ 25+ godchildren
  • How Chesterton’s famous toy theater captured kids’ imaginations
  • A day in the life of the Chesterton home (as told by Gilbert)
  • How Chesterton entered the “tremendous gravity of the child”
  • The unique way Chesterton made children feel significant
  • How Gilbert comforted and disciplined young children

G.K. Chesterton was a bubbling mix of joy, wit, wonder, and paradox. He was one of the premier English journalists of the early-twentieth century, as well as a gifted novelist, poet, and essayist. He’s also the most famous Catholic convert of the past 100 years, and his writings have led countless others to faith.

But many people don’t know that in addition to his extraordinary writing and apologetics, Gilbert Keith Chesterton was an exemplary husband and father.

Today, we desperately need models of married sanctity, saintly husbands and wives who pursued the call to holiness in their marriages, work, and ordinary lives.

Chesterton did that. He loved his wife, Frances—he romanced her, like knights of old—and their marriage was immensely fruitful. We should learn from him, not just from his books but from his life.

That’s why, at the most recent Society of G.K. Chesterton Conference, I gave a talk to 500+ people titled “G.K. Chesterton as Husband and Father”, which I'm offering again on this webinar.
