Editorial Reviews


"In an attention deficit culture, Adele Calhoun gently invites us to walk through many doorways of growth and awareness. She invites us into greater humility that yields attention and perception, wisdom and abundant life. To enter deeply into this guidance is to participate with God in the redemption of our lives."

—Kelly Monroe Kullberg, author of Finding God Beyond Harvard

"What a wonderful book so full of riches! Practical, profound, seasoned, thoughtful, challenging. I can't wait to recommend it to our church."

—Pete Scazzero, pastor and author of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality

"This is a book you will want to read and reread and then keep on your nightstand to refer to constantly for all the insight available in its pages. I found it so refreshing that a book of such depth would be of such use in my everyday spiritual walk. It is unique to find a work that puts you in touch with your own soul in a way that makes you want to live your life in the best way possible. I am changed by these invitations from God."

—Dee Yaccino, Del Camino Connection

"This is a lovely book that helps us to hear and respond to God's most winsome and challenging invitations--invitations for our good and our growth. Read it and be blessed!"

—Ruth Haley Barton, founder, Transforming Center, and author of Sacred Rhythms

"Learning how to attend responsively to God's invitations leads us into wholeness, freedom and transformation. Thanks for reminding us that Jesus continually invites us to come close, draw near and follow him via these pathways of grace, healing and joy."

—Stephen A. Macchia, president, Leadership Transformations, Inc., and author of Becoming a Healthy Church

"I have known Adele Calhoun since seminary days, and I have seen her face many of the divine invitations named in this book, as well as help other people navigate through them. She is a wise and godly guide!"

—Tim Keller, pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City
