Item description for Gracious Goodness: Living Each Day in the Gifts of the Spirit by Melannie Svoboda...

Overview
Melannie Svoboda, SND, takes seriously the "traditional" gifts of the Holy Spirit-but she believes that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are far broader and more common than most of us realize. In Gracious Goodness, Svoboda helps us recognize and welcome the abundance and diversity of the Spirit's gifts in everyday life. 52 gifts of the Holy Spirit are listed here, many of which will surprise readers: childlikeness, common sense, levity, relaxation . . . even anger, failure, and guilt. Each two-page meditation, based on Scripture and real-life experiences, begins with a relevant quote and ends with a few application questions and a short prayer.
