Feeling burnt-out from life, strung-out from social media, and put out
by a society that always wants more from you? Beloved nun and social
activist Joan Chittister, who appeared on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday,
offers a practical, character-building, and inspirational guide to help
you take control of your emotional life and redirect your spiritual
Joan Chittister, whom Publishers Weekly calls "one of the
most well-known and trusted contemporary spiritual authors," is a
rabble-rousing force of nature for social justice, and a passionate
proponent of personal faith and spiritual fulfillment. Drawing on little
known, ancient teachings of the saints, Sister Joan offers a practical
program to help transform our thinking and rebel against our fears,
judgments and insecurities.
"Freedom from anxiety, worry, and
tensions at home and work, comes when we give ourselves to something
greater," she argues. "We need to seek wisdom rather than simply facts,
to think before speaking, and in turn create respectful communities."
With a series of twelve simple rules for healthy spiritual living,
Chittister not only reminds us, but pleads with us, to develop enduring
values by shifting our attention to how God wants us to live. This book
will teach you how to accomplish this.
