Teresa Tomeo, author of the new book "God's Bucket List," says that she knows from her own life how "freeing" it is to put God's priorities first.
"I always had my own bucket list. I had my own plan. But what I found was that was not necessarily aligned with God's plan for my life," she told CNA Nov. 21. "When I discovered God's plan, it was a much better plan for me."
The phrase "the bucket list" became popular after the 2007 movie of the same name about two elderly men dying of cancer who fulfill their dreams before they die.
Tomeo noticed that "everybody was talking about a 'bucket list' but nobody was mentioning God." Her new book aims to help people make God a priority.
