Item Description...
Overview
Around us, there are hints that there is a way of life vastly richer and deeper than all this hurried existence, a life unhurried serenity and peace and power. A life where we see all that is sacred. It seems the more we pack into our lives, the less we experience of our lives. We've become modern-day Marthas, busy, distracted, and empty, instead of like her sister Mary, calm, focused, and fulfilled. How do we, like Mary, create "pauses" in our days and weeks to hear what the Savior has to say to us? How do we make time for the things that ultimately matter? How can we become more spiritually sensitive to the everyday moments of life? In Seeing What Is Sacred (formerly titled The Reflective Life), acclaimed writer Ken Gire unlocks the door to change by introducing us not to a trendy new method, but to a centuries-old tradition of seeing the sacred in the everyday through reflective living. In this momentous work, readers will: Discover this rich heritage that stretches from David, Solomon, and Jesus himself to Augustine, Brother Lawrence and Mother Teresa. Learn "habits of the heart" that deepen their intimacy with Christ through Scripture, meditation, and prayer Cultivate a spiritual sensitivity that allows them to see God at work in all of life's moments

Around us, there are hints that there is a way of life vastly richer and deeper than all this hurried existence, a life unhurried serenity and peace and power. A life where we see all that is sacred.

It seems the more we pack into our lives, the less we experience of our lives. We've become modern-day Marthas, busy, distracted, and empty, instead of like her sister Mary, calm, focused, and fulfilled. How do we, like Mary, create "pauses" in our days and weeks to hear what the Savior has to say to us? How do we make time for the things that ultimately matter? How can we become more spiritually sensitive to the everyday moments of life?

From there he embarked on a career of fulltime writing which has resulted in the publication of more than twenty books, several of which have won prestigious awards.Ken has a heart for helping individuals create space for reflection so as to develop their personal relationships with others and God.

Word of Caution if You Read "The Reflective Life"  Jan 9, 2007
I have always loved Ken Gire's work. This book is no different: insightful, simple and deeply profound. It can compared to eating a delicious meal because each bite is so rich. However, if you read a previous Ken Gire book, "The Reflective Life" please be aware that it is the same book with a different title. I purchased it thinking it was brand new but ended up giving it as a gift since I already own it under its previous title.
 
Viewing Life Through God's Filter  Jul 11, 2006
From the time we're children, we learn that the playing field is not equal. Some excel in sports, math, or reading. Others display a natural creativity, or a knack for attracting friends like moths to a porch light.

But think back far enough, and I'll bet you can remember someone like Nancy, who could barely lift her head to look you in the eye. Overshadowed. Alone. Desperately in need of a friend, but not knowing where to begin. So she didn't.

Every town, every school, every neighborhood has a child like Nancy. If you haven't met her yet, you or your children will. How we deal with the Nancys of this world is a window into who we really are. In his new book, Seeing What is Sacred: Becoming More Spiritually Sensitive to the Everyday Moments of Life, gifted author Ken Gire writes about how to live a more reflective life. I love his view of the bigger picture when he writes:

"To better love God and other people is the goal of the reflective life. But before we can love them, we must see them. And we must see them not as we would like to see them or as they would like to be seen. We must see them as they are. Otherwise we don't love the person. We love the image we perceive the person to be."

Gire's book strips away the fog and inspires its reader to slow down and count each moment as a possibility to see through God's eyes.
