A compilation of Christian prayers from various traditions of the faith.
Dan Heekin grew up without a father from the age of 3. As Dan grew older he dove deeply into his passions to distract himself from the pain he felt from this loss of a father. He earned several graduate degrees. With the attainment of his last degree, a doctorate in clinical psychology, he began to put together the experiences of his life and education that would allow him to work toward coming to terms with the loss of his father.
In these pages, part memoir, part family biography, you are invited along to take this journey, from loss to acceptance, and possibly understanding of who his father was. Through interviews with family friends and others, and research about topics ranging from the Chicago Winter weather to the World War II experiences of a soldier, Dan tells his story of a lost loved one and what it takes to come to terms with that loss. Dan’s story is more than just his. It mirrors the experience of any person who has lost a loved one and struggles to keep that memory alive.
Edited and Published by Nathaniel Becker and Dan's son Michael.

2017, The Poet's Press
Coffee Break is comedy, rife with satire on the limited, and self-limiting, perspectives of workers who know little else than work, but it goes deeper, showing how those at every level of a company enact the inept cruelties of their bosses upon those below them, so that even a janitors’ workroom or a restroom stall, becomes a place of surveillance.
(Blurb by Brett Rutherford.)
