Keep this book with you at all times! Aug 24, 2004
'The Heart of Henri Nouwen' is a wonderful little book. It's the kind of book that I keep with me every day. I read it as I would a meditation or a 'thoughts-in-solitude' type of text. For me, it is for reflection, soul-making, soul-mending, and very healing. It's 'spiritual' in the sense that it connects our normal living -- and its attendant emotions -- with purpose and with vision. It constantly reminds me, whatever my day is like, to look at the following question directly in the mirror: "What kind of a person do you want to be?" Tough question, but I cannot go through life without wanting integrity in my answer.
