    • Plan of Life: Habits to Help You Grow Closer to God

      There is no better time to change your life than to change it right now, says Father Roger J. Landry, and Plan of Life is the guide you'll need. Landry discusses how people form habits, and how in particular you can form holy habits, habits that will bring you closer to Jesus. It represents a "treasure chest" of practices to help you grow happier, holier, and closer to God every day. Using passages and descriptions from the Bible, Landry first introduces you to the Holy Spirit, who will be your guide and companion throughout the book. He then introduces ways that this book will jumpstart your life through the six pillars of holiness training advocated by Saint John Paul II: grace, prayer, Sunday Mass, Confession, listening to the Word of God, and proclaiming that Word. This book is meant for teens to older adults of all educational levels who aspire to spiritual growth; it's also a great aid for parents and grandparents who need help in teaching children and young people how to grow in God. There are many Catholics who are not familiar with having a plan of life that includes these basic elements. Many Catholics would like to grow spiritually, but don't know where to start and welcome this kind of practical, doable approach: this is what they've been looking for! (learn more)
