Joseph Sharp's first book, Living Our Dying, received incredible praise from Thomas Moore, Marianne Williamson, and Ram Dass. Now, with moving stories and simple suggestions, he reveals how to approach deeper spirituality with a sense of joyous adventure-even when it is most arduous and the temptation to quit is at hand. Open-minded and open-hearted, this book reminds readers that faith deepens with time, that the spiritual journey is one of ongoing growth, and that having the willingness to be teachable will bring depth and maturity to everyday life.
