Summary

Do you long for a deep, fundamental change in your life with God? Do you desire a greater intimacy with God? Do you wonder how you might truly live your life as God created you to live it? Spiritual disciplines are activities that open us to God's transforming love and the changes that only God can bring about in our lives. Picking up on the monastic tradition of creating a "rule of life" that allows for regular space for the practice of the spiritual disciplines, this book takes you more deeply into understanding seven key disciplines along with practical ideas for weaving them into everyday life. Each chapter includes exercises to help you begin the practices - individually and in a group context. The final chapter puts it all together in a way that will help you arrange your life for spiritual transformation. The choice to establish your own sacred rhythm is the most important choice you can make with your life.

Very inspiring and life changing

Great book but narrator sounded robotic. I kept going with it as the content was very good. Thought provoking and uplifting.

The book was given to me as a gift. I have both read and listened to the book and the content is excellent!

Helpful, inspiring & practical

Beautiful book! I will probably get a paper copy. Would that the reader's style matched the content. It was difficult to finish beacause of the narrator who did not feel connected to or understanding of the subject matter. She probably does well in other genre.

Did not like the narrators voice at all!!!

I found the narrators voice to be very disingenuous to the overall message of the book. It was too dramatic and very distracting. Couldn’t finish the book as a result.
