Celebration of Discipline, Richard Foster's guide to the classic Spiritual Disciplines, has enriched the prayer and spiritual growth of more than a million readers. Exploring the enduring power of such practices as prayer, meditation, fasting, solitude, service, simplicity, worship, and celebration, Foster demonstrates how we can "bring the abundance of God into our lives," and infuse our daily activities with joy, peace, and deepened understanding.
In this practical, combined journal-workbook, Richard Foster and Kathryn Helmers help readers find new ways to reflect on, experience, and integrate the Disciplines into their lives. Designed for use by individuals or groups, this interactive resource features personal reflections, journaling questions, and exercises that will keep the reader focused on spiritual growth for a full year.
