The perfect Christmas gift for yourself or someone you love
The Retreat, Reflect, Renew journal invites you to step away from the loudness of the world in quiet 15-20 minute increments. Each page provides a safe and sacred space to open your heart, grow in self acceptance and discover your authentic self as a means of growing closer to God's love and strength. The beautiful prayers, scripture verses and reflection questions will help you learn how to draw on God's comfort in the most ordinary moments of your day.
The gift of listening
Do you hear a faint sort of nudging from within, quietly whispering, "there must be more"? More meaning. More hope. More peace. Or maybe you're wrestling with a loud cry calling out for less! Less stress. Less uncertainty. Less isolation. If this sounds like you, I invite you to take a personal retreat with Retreat, Reflect, Renew: A Sacred Journal for A More Peaceful You.
The gift of reflection
"Just trust God," your friends say. If you're suffering from a broken relationship, stressed out over money problems, or feeling overwhelmed with a busy schedule, you know that "just trusting God" is not easy. The path to trust and peace requires time to reflect on your life: your expectations, your schedule, and your relationship with yourself, others, and God. The Retreat, Reflect, Renew journal is designed to give you the personal retreat time necessary to do that.
The gift of affirmation
A faith journey is not a one size fits all. You will come with your own story and that should be honored. Author Christine Jurisich spent three years in prayer and consultation with spiritual directors, retreat directors, family therapists, a psychologist, priests, nuns, and women engaged in a spiritual journey to develop a process that allows you to feel accepted wherever you're at on your journey and empowered to grow at your own pace and in your own way.
That's how I want you to feel when you start the very first page of my personal retreat journal. Like you're on the couch in your comfy sweats with a safe friend welcoming you home. You'll appreciate this personal retreat if you're a Catholic woman looking for a welcoming, loving, and non-judgmental approach to finding a more faith filled life or if you're a Christian sister who appreciates a holistic path to spirituality. I'm Catholic and I draw from the richness and beauty of Christ-centered spirituality. This book is intended to be a place where all of us Christians can meet in our journey towards a more balanced and faith filled life. I hope you'll appreciate my honest stories and approach that'll make you feel like you've finally found your home.
