‘Go home for dinner’: Mike Pence dispenses advice on faith and family as 2024 hopeful teams up with his daughter on forthcoming book
- Former Vice President Mike Pence releases his second book in November
- ‘Go Home for Dinner’ is written with daughter Charlotte Pence Bond
- He is running in third place in the race for the GOP 2024 nomination
And during his time in the U.S. House of Representatives his desk was adorned with a red telephone, a gift from Mrs. Pence and to which only she had the answer.
The details reemerged years later when Pence was vice president, triggering ridicule.
But now Pence, who recently launched his own run for the presidency, is distilling his tips on how to juggle work and family into a book.
‘Go Home for Dinner: Advice on How Faith Makes a Family and Family Makes a Life’ will be published by Simon & Schuster in November, and is co-written by the former vice president’s daughter Charlotte Pence Bond.
‘I hope these lessons and stories from our family encourage you to follow your dreams while keeping your family close,’ said Pence.

‘Strong families are the very heartbeat of America. I believe we can heal our country by putting faith and family first—and it all starts when you go home for dinner.’
That sentiment is at the heart of Pence’s campaign, as he looks to pick up the support of the religious right.
However, Donald Trump’s former righthand man faces an uphill struggle in a contest that is dominated so far by the former president.
Polls of likely Republican primary voters consistently place him a distant third behind Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
A rolling average maintained by the statistics website FiveThirtyEight has him on about 5.5 percent, compared to 53.4 percent for Trump and 21.4 percent for DeSantis.
Pence released his first book, ‘So Help Me God,’ last November. The memoir details his life and time in office, offering a springboard to his campaign launch earlier this month.
This time, his publisher said, he has written a practical guide to balancing the demands of life with ‘the long-term satisfaction that only a commitment to your family can bring.’
‘In this personal account, former Vice President Mike Pence champions one of his most deeply held beliefs: that faith makes a family, and family makes a life,’ it continues.
‘And, through straightforward advice and personal storytelling, he shows readers how to do the same.’
