A book that taught me…

 52 Weeks of Gratitude
prompt this week
A Book You Learned From

I have read a lot of books and many taught me something.
Yet, when I saw this prompt one book immediately came to mind.


I read this book the first time when it was published in 1978.
I have read it several times since.

The book is in three parts:
1) The Inward Disciplines
2) The Outward Disciplines
3) The Corporate Disciplines

In each section, the author has treasures to share with the reader.
Probably the most surprising thing I learned from this book
is that discipline is not a dirty word?
It is a beautiful word.

If you are looking for a book to challenge your spiritual life
and learn ways to expand and enhance your worship
read this book.

I am grateful I found this book 37 years ago
and now I am going to read it again.
