{
I listened with my heart to the Abbot’s straightforward way of exposing the basic truth about how to trust God. I felt a relief at learning the lies we believe about our Lord. The book points out the myths and roadblocks we all create to hinder the path to a life well-lived. He has the reader go on a clear and honest pilgrimage to build a relationship with God, a relationship that makes a difference.

– The Center Coordinator and Assistant Program Director for St. Placid Priory’s Spirituality Center

Life is confusing.  Which way do I turn? I have to decide quickly. So I have a choice, fight, flight, or freeze. None of them seem quite right…

If you do not have a rule of life, life will rule you.

Actually, the Christian church does have the answers. The problem is that Sunday services alone are not enough. Many folks believe that one hour with God is a sufficient weekly filling station.  Not true.

Let us remember that Sunday service is primarily for worshiping God, not personal growth…
