New My52WOW Book Club Pick: God The Father or Happiness In Your Hands, by J. Dominguez, M.D.

Happy New Year! I know you haven’t heard much from the My5WOW Book Club, but that is because our last book club pick was a year-long daily devotional. It was a lovely choice, and allowed me to benefit from “365 Stories of remarkable people and the Scripture that changed their lives.” As 2015 ended up … Continue reading

Year End Contemplations – and a new My52WOW Book Club Pick

This morning I had an interesting twitter exchange with a friend that I respect a great deal. She always shares her heart, and she touches many with her talents. This morning she shared that she had had high hopes for 2013 – that it started in such a spectacularly good way, and then exploded, mid-year, … Continue reading

New My52WOW Book Club Pick: God Walk Me Through This

So, I have a confession to make – I am halfway through this book. In September, I began preparing for a presentation at The Women’s Exchange in Winnetka, IL. During that presentation, I shared my top 10 list for regaining resilience after extreme loss. #8 of that list was the directive to “Create a routine … Continue reading

New My52WOW Book Club Pick – In His Footsteps: Be Happy in Every Situation, Find Your Purpose

So, first, let me say I am very happy that September is here. For those of you who may be part of the My52WOW family, you know that historically, August has been a challenging month for me. This August was no different. But with a flip of the calendar, comes a fresh month, a new … Continue reading

Make time for Meditation: Shambhala, The Sacred Path of the Warrior

This morning, I made time for meditation. The last month has been a whirlwind of new – juggling new responsibilities, new relationships, and new ways life has chosen to challenge me. My prayer and meditation life was challenged in a way that it hasn’t been in a long time. Last night, when talking to one … Continue reading

Reminds me of #36: My52WOW Book Club Pick: The Book of Romans

I just returned from the bookstore. And first, let me say, bookstores are some of my favorite places in the world. I know they are closing right and left. People are buying Kindles and Nooks, and eReaders all over the place. I don’t have any (although I spend almost all my time on my laptop … Continue reading

New My52 WOW Book Club Pick: Ordinary People As Monks and Mystics

Ok, I have to make a confession – I am almost done with this book. I made it through this book in record time, maybe I was trying to make up for the fantastically slow pace with which I read and completed the last My52WOW Book Club pick – The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the … Continue reading

Worship, Strength to Stand, and God Never Blinks – My52WOW Book Club reads

12/12/12 Note: Re-posting this in celebration of being given the opportunity to appear on The Regina Brett Show on WKSU in Cleveland. Miracles do happen! Months ago, this was the My52WOW Book Club pick, and now I get to speak to the author, who I think is just amazing. The show will air Saturday, December 15 at 3:00 … Continue reading

New My52WOW Book Club Pick: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Koran

As this is the holy month of Ramadan for those who practice Islam, I thought it would be a good time to spend some time learning more about the religion. For those who know about My 52 Weeks of Worship – in the first 52 weeks, I visited several Muslim worship communities, but I have … Continue reading

New My52WOW Book Club Pick: My 52 Weeks of Worship: Lessons from a Global, Spiritual, Interfaith Journey

Some books are simply delicious. You know the ones – you savor every word, you don’t want to put it down, you read slowly, and then re-read because you are enjoying it so much it makes you sad to think the book will ever end. That was my experience with the last My52WOW book selection, … Continue reading
