A review by +Michael Seagriff

I've "attended" the last few conferences. They are charging this year, but it is so worth it! Lots of great information. I'm looking forward to Connie and A.J.'s presentations.

Dan and I have been working on this new video trailer for Trusting God with St. Therese for several months. Enjoy (and share if you feel moved to do so).

Well, yesterday I finished uploading my latest book to IngramSpark and it passed the digital test! Now I'll just keep my fingers crossed that a live person doesn't contact me on Tuesday to tell me what I did wrong. I plan to do a post on this at our blog if everything works out.

I did find a few mistakes in my proof that I thought warranted another revision--all my fault. So I bit the bullet and decided to make a $25 change request. Then for some reason, IngramSpark did not charge me for the changes! I don't know if it was a fluke or if they are changing their policy or what, but I am happy I did not balk at the charge, since I didn't have to pay it anyway. I just approved the book, so we'll see what happens now.

So, you have set aside a certain time every day to converse with God. You are reading short passages of Scripture as a basis for your conversation. You recognize that dryness is a normal part of prayer that even the saints ex...

Listen in and find answers to some of your biggest questions about prayer.
What's wrong if I can't pray very long? To whom were the mystics of the Church addressing their advice? Dan and Melissa take listener's questions on prayer.

Story
Tagline
Carmelite spirituality, contemplative kids.
Introduction
I am a Catholic wife and mother of four boys, dedicated to prayer and to teaching my children to pray. I am the author of Trusting God with St. Therese, A Spiritual Growth Plan for Your Choleric Child, and Is Centering Prayer Catholic? I developed my own homeschooling method to foster a contemplative lifestyle. I blog on that and Carmelite spirituality for adults at Contemplative Homeschool. I also own the Google+ Community Indie Catholic Authors.

I wrote the e-book Five Lessons from the Carmelite Saints That Will Change Your Life. You can download it free for your Kindle or Nook.
