Reviews - What do customers think about Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting: Patience, Loss of Control, Living in the Present, Compassion, Gratitude, Humility, Trust in God?

A Gem of a Book!  Jan 10, 2007
A gem of a book! I now 'wait' with more humility and grace. These seven gifts have come to my mind regularly since reading this book. Not many moments pass in a day without experiencing one of these gifts as I wait. This book is an easy read filled with wise information. I have used the guidelines in the back for leading a group on this book and found it to be very complete. As a therapist, I have already passed this wisdom on to others. Get this book for you....and for others as a gift!
Hating to Wait  Jan 3, 2007
This is a great book for anyone who has to wait, whether it be for medical results, job search, a new baby, loss of dependence, etc. I have used this book for people who are grieving as well as those who are dealing with cancer and their significant others. Well worth a look.
You'll want to read!  Dec 17, 2005
Holly W. Whitcomb's Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting is truly a gift unto itself. Whether you're simply waiting for the bus, or waiting for the diagnosis of a loved one, this book offers hope and inspiration to those looking for meaning in the hardships of life.

Whitcomb explores patience, loss of control, living in the present, compassion, gratitude, humility, and trust in God as spiritual offerings that we so commonly overlook in our daily lives.

Her suggestions for reframing life's uncontrollable circumstances promise to be life-changing, and her book, full of personal anecdotes, poems, Biblical selections, and excerpts from inspirational writings, is delightful and captivating--something to be read again and again.

Holly W. Whitcomb has been a pastor and clergy-woman since 1978. She is the Director of Kettlewood Retreats in Wisconsin, and travels nationally to lead retreats and spiritual events. Whitcomb is the author of three previous books, including Feasting with God and Practicing Your Path.

Armchair Interviews says: Be sure to pick up extra copies--this is a gift you will want to share.

timely topic  Nov 25, 2005
Even before Waiting for Godot went on stage, the subject of waiting has consumed this time-driven culture. By exploring the texture of those who wait, Whitcomb has managed to give aid and comfort to those wait. In lifting up the blessings of God to the time-impaired, she is blessing us. The book is not only a must read, but a resource for the times to come.
