Spiritual Growth Articles

Graceful Living.

"Our real journey in life is interior:
it is a matter of growth, deepening,
and of an ever greater surrender
to the creative action of love
and grace in our hearts."
~Thomas Merton 

This month, our Feature Articles are exploring the topic of "Graceful Living." We are graced with a rich cornucopia of thought and wisdom on the subject of "graceful living," as each of our contributing authors share his/her personal reflections on what it means to "live gracefully."

We discover that graceful living is many wondrous and miraculous things. Living a life of grace is about living gently, lovingly, kindly, mindfully, peacefully, purposefully, consciously, gratefully, abundantly, beautifully, soulfully, and joyfully.

May your heart be filled with many blessings of grace this holiday season and always!
