This book found me! Aug 7, 2007
I was visiting a local bookstore just "shelf shopping" and this little book was in the wrong place on the shelf. I picked it up, put it in my pile of books to browse in the coffee shop area and moved on down the row.
When I finally settled into my chair, I picked the book up and realized, this man lives in my very small town! Unless you live here or in an area like it, you don't understand the amazement I felt at this discovery. This was what drew me in but in is NOT what kept me and lead me to purchase the book.
Mother Teresa's Prescription:Finding Happiness And Peace in Service is a small book filled with powerful information on finding purpose in one's life. It begins with Dr Paul sharing his journey to meet and learn from Mother Teresa and ends with small chapters focusing on the virtues Mother taught him and others. These virtues, or perscriptions, when practiced bring healing to the soul. But, unlike popular self-help books (of which I am a fan) this book does more than heal YOU; if put into practice, this book will heal your community. WOW!!!
Though small and easy to read, it is not a one time read. I find myself going back over the prescriptions again and again trying to "delve deeper' into their meanings and actions.
I like it so much I've placed the book on my list of gifts to give for Christmas this year!
