Item Description...
In Seasons of a Family's Life, Wendy M. Wright-- parent, Church historian, and follower of the contemplative tradition-- offers a reflective, story-filled, and inspirational examination of the spiritual fabric of domestic life. This practical and insightful book explores family life as a context for nurturing contemplative practices in the home. Rooted in an appreciation of our deep and wise spiritual traditions that probe the sacred alongside everyday human experience, Seasons of a Family's Life challenges us to wrestle with the great religious questions that shape our lives and offers parents a model for integrating family life and spiritual awareness. Every chapter in Wendy M. Wright's thoughtful book is a lesson in gaining an awareness of the joy in our experience as families and letting the sacred be more present in our frantically paced daily lives. Wright shows us how to pay attention to the silence that underlies our lives and encourages us to be sensitive to the ordinary moments that connect us. She reveals a family life replete with sacred spaces, rituals that enrich our time together, shared family stories, and much more. Interwoven throughout the book is a wealth of inspiring, personal stories.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Realistic spirituality for families  Mar 12, 2007
Wendy Wright blends sophisticated theology with the practicalities of daily family life to encourage all to develop their spirituality in ways that are realistic and accessible. Excellent resource for spiritual directors, retreat leaders and general readers desirous of deepening their faith.
Beauty, Grace, and Poetry  Apr 18, 2003
Wendy M. Wright has done it once again. A fitting sequel to her memorable, Sacred Dwelling, Seasons of a Family's Life is a prodigious accomplishment. No other writer in spirituality today writes with the insight, beauty, grace, and poetry of Wendy Wright. She makes the ordinary, extroadinary, and the seemingly mundane, numinous. Wendy has the extraordinary gift of using her well-honed language to give meaning to life events we might otherwise pass by. She is self-revelatory and vulneralbe in this book, using her and her family's experience as a gateway to revelation of God and the Spirit all around us. One cannot help but go back and re-read her prose with the hope that some of its lyricism and beauty might linger in the soul. This is a book not to miss. It will give you a deeper appreciation of your own lived experience of family, and cause you to see things there you have never seen before. One can only wait with bated breath to see where this extraordinary author will lead us next.
