Reviews - What do customers think about Traits of a Healthy Spirituality (Inspirational Reading for Every Catholic)?
Breath of fresh air Sep 11, 2003
Svoboda invites us to slow down and join her as she explores different aspects of our spirituality that is tied to our view of our Heavenly Father. She discusses different traits (wonder, hope, etc.) and discusses why our perspective of these traits needs to be focused on God. She invites us to cultivate this trait and wait for the results that will come. The breath of fresh air is our renewed love for God as we are reminded of the awesome God we serve and grow into a deeper love with Him as we see His goodness and unfailing love in and around our lives.
