A Daily Spiritual Rx for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany
An established author with over forty years of experience as a physician, minister, mother, retreat leader, and spiritual director has collected daily messages from well-known spiritual authors and responds with a short discussion from her own experience particularly as it relates to spiritual direction. A Daily Spiritual Rx should trigger a connection to God for the reader from her own experience to sustain her for the day during Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. Joanna addresses in particular the most common subjects and questions brought up by people on spiritual journeys or in spiritual direction as she shares books, readings, and experiences that have most connected her to God on her journey from both contemporary and classical writers. Its uniqueness is a daily appetizer sized taste of the spiritual life to be digested during the whole day. The reader may be stimulated to read further about the author or book or insight chosen for that day or just digest this bite. The book can be used as a daily devotional, but hopefully it will lead the reader to a deeper discovery of his or her own insights as well as what well known authors in spiritual direction present.The author is a frequent and well-known retreat leader and the multiple readings on varying subjects in the book are an excellent way to journey with readers on a retreat. The book could be part of curriculum in spiritual direction classes and schools, men's and women's church groups, pastoral care classes and schools. It also speaks to those in 12 step recovery groups. Special writings address the liturgical seasons of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany.
