The Sacred Year

*** Special THANK YOU to LitFuse for providing me with a review copy. My review is my own personal opinion.***

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

IMG_9846.JPG

Frustrated and disillusioned with his life as a Christian, motivational speaker Michael Yankoski was determined to stop merely talking about living a life of faith and start experiencing it. The result was a year dedicated to engaging in spiritual practices, both ancient and modern, in a life-altering process that continues to this day.

Whether contemplating an apple for an hour before tasting it (attentiveness), eating on $2.00 a day (simplicity) or writing simple letters of thanks (gratitude), Michael discovered a whole new depth through the intentional life.

Stirred on by the guiding voice of Father Solomon, a local monk, Yankoski’s life is slowly transformed. Both entertaining and heart-wrenching, Yankoski’s story will resonate with those who wish to deepen their own committed faith as well as those who are searching – perhaps for the first time – for their own authentic encounter with the Divine.

MY REVIEW

I was really excited to read The Sacred Year. I love hearing about other peoples testimony and faith experiences.
Several experiences in his life had finally led to a discontent with the “Christian” life. Was the modern Christ-life it all just a big show? Michael wanted answers and the result is “The Sacred Life”.
I enjoyed reading of his journey very much…it’s full of deep moments, hilarious moment, odd moments and all inspiring.
There are so many great take-aways from this book that I hope to adapt into my own life like… Single-tasking, Practicing Simplicity, Gratitude, Community, and Caring.
Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of The Sacred Year and then implement the things you feel necessary…it may just change your year and even your life!

*****5/5 STARS- LOVE LOVE LOVE IT; GET YOUR OWN COPY!!!*****
