The Discerning Life: An Invitation to Notice God in Everything by Steve Macchia

Steve Macchia offers one of the best books I have ever read on discernment and how to live a life dependent on the Holy Spirit. "The Discerning Life" does just what it says and focuses on taking time to hear and discern the movements of God in every day life circumstances. If you want to go beyond discernment as it applies to decision making and instead move into practicing a preference for God in all things I recommend getting a copy!

Silencio Edited by Steve Macchia 

"Silencio" is what I like to call a compilation of mini-retreats for the soul! Written by 22 different authors on topics such as Sabbath, Rest, Advent, Lent, Silence, Journaling, Community, and so much more. Each of the 52 prayerfully written reflections comes with corresponding questions to invite you into the gifts that these seasons and spiritual disciplines have to offer you.

This is a great book to have on hand, curl up with a cup of coffee and a journal and enter into sacred space with the Lord. Click the picture for a purchasing link, photo credit: product image from
