      • Escaping Anxiety: Along the Road to Spiritual Joy

        Escaping Anxiety along the Road to Spiritual Joy is not a “simple” book of advice, which could turn out to be ineffective because too “pat.” Instead it evolved into something that could actually be a new genre! How so? Well, have you ever seen a book of spiritual advice where confidentiality was not an issue because the directee is a co-author and, what is more, one whose personal journals throughout the years have been published! Our book takes the form of a chronicle of the process employed by a well-trained spiritual director helping a Catholic leader struggle to open herself to the graces that brought her from excessive anxiety along the road to spiritual joy. Our goals are to help readers suffering from excessive anxiety and to provide insights for any mentors of such people such as priests, religious, and lay pastoral ministers. (learn more)
