5-Minute Retreats for Women gives readers permission to experience simple pleasures that will brighten their day and renew their spirits. Sue Augustine, the author of With Wings, There Are No Barriers, a contributor to Chicken Soup for the Soul, and an internationally known conference speaker, highlights the benefits of cultivating a relaxed, peaceful spirit by encouraging readers to:
-- Savor the unique smell of favorite foods, crayons, flowers, freshly turned soil
-- Create an inspirational tape of music, voices of loved ones, gentle poems
-- Bask in the pleasure of complete silence
-- Gaze at the stars and delight in the majesty of God's creation
-- Turn embarrassing moments, setbacks, and failures into funny life-stories
As women integrate these low-cost, uplifting activities into their daily lives, they'll discover increased energy, spiritual renewal, and a deeper, stronger faith.
