Inhaltsangabe: Each of the essays in Gifts of the Spirit share Ardath (Ardie) Rodale's vision of where we can find spirituality: in the various, everyday events, responsibilites and moments of joy and sadness that make up our lives. Whether she's writing about alone-time spent on a garden path or the special, poignant meaning a perfectly formed white feather has, Ardie shows us that common ground exists within personal experience.
Anyone who has ever marveled at the pure joy of a child's smile, been amazed at how a chance encounter with a stranger can have unexpected meaning, or felt the mysterious power that sharing with others can bring, will find the observations and wisdom in Gifts of the Spirit reaching into their hearts and souls. We will reconnect with the core of spiritual life-- home and family-- and be moved to examine our own life experiences for the sacred lessons they can teach, no matter what our faith may be.
Advance Praise for Gifts of the Spirit
"A heart-soaring, soul-lifting book from one of the most gifted, inspiring women I know. The book glows with gentle encouragement, touching stories, and luminous wisdom deeply woven from Ardie's life. You will glow for days after reading this book."--Susan Skog, author of Embracing Our Essence: Spiritual Conversations with Prominent Women and ABC's for Living
" Gifts of the Spirit is an act of courage and generosity. In telling her own stories, Ardie offers optimistic insights into the joys and celebrations of pain and grief of this life. Her wisdom is lucidly revealing. I highly recommend this book to anyone searching for truth, wisdom, and spiritual growth."--James A. Autry, author of Love and Profit, The Art of Caring Leadership, and Confessions of an Accidental Businessman
"This nourishing collection of stories is medicine for the soul. Ardath Rodale is a woman who has faced more than any one woman's share of challenges and has turned her experiences into tales of hope and healing. A book to sit with and savor slowly, like a soothing cup of honey-lemon tea or an afternoon with a cherished friend."--Susan Chernak McElroy, author of Animals as Teachers & Healers
"A deft weaving of image, anecdote, and spirit-- at once elegant in its simplicity and intricate in its subtle play of heart and spirit. And, like any priceless tapestry, its effects linger long and deep in our souls."--Jean Houston, Ph.D., author of A Mythic Life and The Search for the Beloved
" Gifts of the Spirit allows us to drink from the well of Ardie Rodale's extraordinary life, which offers us sweet sips of wisdom and loving inspiration for those who thirst for meaning...."--Keith Smith, American painter
