Our days are filled with–and sometimes ruled by—the “Yes” we give to others. In her new book, The Grace of Yes: Eight Virtues for Generous Living, author Lisa Hendey explores how our lives could change if we were as generous with our “Yes” to God. How would our lives look if we open-heartedly followed God’s will instead of our own, if we silenced ourselves long enough to listen to what God has planned for us and then answered with a hearty “Yes”?
Each chapter ends with questions “To Ponder” how each grace has worked—or needs to work—in our own lives, as well as a prayer to remind us that these graces are not something that we “do” on our own, but are gifts from God. And all we need to do is to say, “Yes!”
The Grace of Yes is available for purchase or special order through St. Patrick Book & Gift from now until March 31. Begin the New Year by committing your heart to saying 'Yes" to God and then to open your eyes to see the changes that it will make in your relationship to your family, your friends, and most especially to the God who loves each of us more than we can know.
