+  Gifts of the Visitation: Nine Spiritual Encounters with Mary and Elizabeth

  • Description: "The biblical encounter between the Virgin Mary and her cousin Elizabeth, before the births of Jesus and John the Baptist, is at the heart of Gifts of the Visitation by popular speaker and syndicated columnist Denise Bossert. She uses their story to highlight nine gifts experienced by both women as they awaited the arrival of their sons and to encourage readers to develop these gifts themselves. In her debut book, speaker, columnist, and Catholic convert Denise Bossert showcases the seasons of birth, grief, newness, and challenge experienced in the hearts of Mary and Elizabeth at the Visitation and invites readers to see these times in their own lives as opportunities to let God make all things new. Within each of those seasons, nine gifts emerge--spontaneity, courage, joy, readiness, humility, adventure, hospitality, wonder and awe, and thanksgiving--equipping readers to present Christ to the world as Mary and Elizabeth did."
