Product description

Review

"Helen Cepero argues that journaling can help us hear God better and experience spiritual transformation."--Steve Rabey, YouthWorker Journal, July/August 2008

"Lively, encouraging and pastoral. . . . Cepero shows readers how to . . . [move] past simple recitation of events, to writing that reveals God at work in a life."--Publishers Weekly starred review

"Helen Cepero's book is warm and unassuming, full of wisdom without any showing off. A wonderful introduction to journaling."--Tim Stafford, author of Shaking the System

"The wisdom and guidance of Helen Cepero's book is irresistible. Using poetry, Scripture and stories, she guides the reader into journaling activities that uncover the presence of God in the writer's life. Those who are beginning will discover the richness of journaling as a spiritual practice. Those with experience will find new ways to delve into their depths. A wonderful book."--Rev. Jane E. Vennard, author of A Praying Congregation: The Art of Teaching Spiritual Practice

"This is a book which should not be (merely) read. It should be done. Her book is a vast smorgasbord of particular experiences in the practice of journal-keeping, each one inviting the readers to 'taste and see' the presence of God in their lives. This book opens up the rich potential in journaling, warns us of the patterns of thinking that threaten to derail this practice and provides the tools to make it a valuable means of pursuing relationship with God."--Evan B. Howard, author of Praying the Scriptures

A grace-filled tour guide, inviting readers to join her on a path to encounter God through attentive writing.--Cathy Norman Peterson, The Covenant Companion, December 2008

Cepero's real-life anecdotes, spiritual insight and suggestions for journaling are most effective.--EB, Libraries Alive, Spring 2009

Cepero's book eases the reader into the journaling process from the absolute beginning and leads all the way to how to enjoy the fruits of one's journal. Fresh, frank, and unassuming, Cepero's text allows readers to see that like many other forms of prayer, journaling can be for anyone. Journaling as a Spiritual Practice is a welcome introduction to spiritual journaling, bringing a sometimes intimidating form of prayer out of the garret and into the light of everyday.--Monique Keffer, Presence, December 2008

A fantastic gem that you will need and desire to be part of your journaling library that will never become outdated.--Chery Clay, Midwest Book Review, December 2008

A strength of the book is Cepero's intentionally focused journaling exercises that can jump-start neophytes who don't know how to journal or revivify the practice of those with considerable experience.--Christian Century, October 7, 2008

"Helen Cepero has done a great service for spiritual directors who want to encourage their directees to 'go deeper.' By using the guidance provided in this excellent book on journaling, we can suggest a structured yet inspiring method of sifting through human experience to find the gold of God's presence. By framing journaling as a prayer practice, Cepero has focused this work as a path to spiritual and personal authenticity I recommend this book as an inviting, reflective tool to help us find the Holy Mystery hidden beneath the rushing surface of life."--Suzanne M. Buckley, editor of Sacred Is the Call: Formation and Transformation in Spiritual Direction Programs and director of Mercy Center, Burlingame
