Publishers Description
Most Americans know George Washington as the father of our country, a dedicated patriot, brilliant general and gifted leader who guided our fledgling nation through bitter revolution and became our first president. He was first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen. What most people don't know is that Washington was a deeply spiritual man.

A devout Christian, Washington's religious beliefs influenced his life as a young surveyor on the dangerous frontier through his heroics as a militia leader in the French and Indian War to the dark days of Valley Forge and the triumph of the presidency. He was held in the highest regard by his fellow citizens and history has canonized him as the most esteemed of the Founding Fathers. At the root of that esteem was his spirituality.

In The Spiritual Journey of George Washington, bestselling author Janice T. Connell examines the spiritual life of our first president. She takes us on a journey from his boyhood scarred by the early death of his father to the pinnacle of the presidency.

Washington was no stranger to sorrow, cold, hunger, persecution, violence, or terrorism. His great accomplishment was to face misfortune and conquer it. He achieved his victory by discipline, commitment, prayer, and the graced ability to bend his will under the yoke of Divine Providence.

Featuring the full text of Washington's private prayers (some possibly composed by Washington himself), The Spiritual Journey of George Washington shines a light on the previously unrecognized faith of our Founding Father, illuminating his personal religious convictions and explaining how they guided his public acts of heroism and his philosophy of governance.

In this modern world, wracked by wars, terrorism, disease, starvation, immorality, and tyranny, George Washington has much to teach us. His accomplishments and writing disclose that Providence was in him, around him, and always with him, as It must be with us.
JANICE T. CONNELL is an attorney and financial consultant. She is a bestselling author of nine books, including Meetings with Mary, Angel Power, and Visions of the Children. She resides in Washington, DC, and Arizona. She is a frequent guest speaker to groups in the United States and abroad.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Spiritual Journey of George Washington?

George Washington Was a Holy Man  Oct 21, 2009
George Washington was certainly a holy man. I had no idea that he was a person of such Christian integrity. This small book, nicely documented shines a light on the spiritual discipline of the first president of the United States. I particularly appreciate his eccumenical understanding, centuries ahead of his times, of the spiritual value of each person. Washington believed and helped others to see that each person rises and falls on the behavior he brings to each moment of his life. I suppose in modern parlance, George Washington, a believing, practicing Anglican Catholic really should be "canonized." Interesting that the founding father of the U.S. would be Saint George Washington. Irony never ceases. The Spiritual Journey of George Washington is a gem.
