Reviews - What do customers think about Sleeping with Bread: Holding What Gives You Life?
Worth a quick read Dec 4, 2007
This is a great little book that is worth reading. The ideas are simple and can be applied immediately with ease. The ideas are also profound and I believe you could spend a lifetime applying and learning from them. After I read my copy, I purchased six more to give away as gifts!
A Fine Book Apr 6, 2007
I love this book, and have given it to several friends and family. My one suggestion is that the cover be revised, because it looks like a kid's book, and if ever you need to "sleep with bread" it's when you are an adult and have your own kids. The suggestions are helpful, and the stories are engaging.
Not a children's book... Feb 25, 2007
The cover of this book and its production format fooled me. (I want a hardback and one that looks like it is for adults.) While the beginning story is ABOUT children, the examen is for grownups. This examen process, however, is about as simple as it can get and one that speaks to just about everyone. Not only does this process work for a spiritual review of the day, but it can even frame a good business meeting! Asking the questions "What gives life the most?" and "What gives life the least?" are easily translatable to "What was viable in that process?" and "What was not viable in that process?" I found that my reviews of business processes were infused with Spirit after having read this book.
Simple and sound advice for everyday spirituality Jan 13, 2007
For those who see themselves wanting to attain higher peace or spirituality in their daily routine, the authors have provided a simple yet abundant model. This is a wonderful gift for the new year, as people are shifting gears and looking to find a fresh routine that will yield them more satisfaction and happiness--and better decision making! The only reason I give this 4 stars and not 5 is I found myself wanting more! This is a great book for book clubs or prayer groups: a quick read which leads to some wonderful conversation.
A Book To Be Read By All Jan 3, 2007
This book was quoted by our pastor and I purchased it for our church library. I find it to be a wonderful, well written book with a message for our world.
