Running Hard, Finishing Strong: 7 Stops to Building Momentum in Your Spiritual Life

Running Hard, Finishing Strong: 7 Stops to Building Momentum in Your Spiritual Life
Sarkisian Ph D, Rick
$12.95
"It's not how you start that matters, but how you finish"

Nowhere is this more true than in our Christian faith. The ultimate goal of reaching Heaven should be the driving force in our lives. But yet, how many times do we get stuck in the minutia of daily life? How many times do we give into self-pity or a feeling of unworthiness? How many times do we simply feel like we are spinning our wheels, perhaps not going backwards, but definitely not moving forward?

Momentum makes all the difference.

By building momentum, it doesn't matter if you stumble. It doesn't matter if you fall. By building momentum, it you see the process instead of the promises. You make the important connections instead of being sidetracked by life's random events.

Here is the practical guide for developing a momentum mindset that connects your faith with real life in a way that supports, motivates, encourages and enhances your efforts along the way. It's a process that focuses squarely not just on who you are, but who you want to become.

  • When you connect the dots, your life comes together
  • When you never give in, you never give out
  • When you seek truth, you find wisdom
  • When you escape your comfort zone, you embrace your purpose
  • When you value your circle of influence, you venture into deeper satisfaction
  • When you insulate your heart, pain can't penetrate
  • When you transform your life, you transmit love

    30 Days to Your New Life: A Guide to Transforming Yourself from Head to Soul

    30 Days to Your New Life: A Guide to Transforming Yourself from Head to Soul
    DeStefano, Anthony
    $21.95

    Happiness. Everyone wants it, but not everyone has it -- or knows how to get it. According to a recent Harris poll, only one in three Americans describes himself as happy. Researchers have dubbed this the "most stressed" of all generations, despite its economic prosperity and technological advances. Anthony DeStefano, best-selling author of A Travel Guide to Heaven and Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To, addresses this problem head-on in his freshly rewritten book, 30 Days to Your New Life, by striving to bring the joy of Heaven down to Earth right now.

    Many self-help books explore the subject of happiness, but one important ingredient always seems to be missing: God. In this no-nonsense, refreshingly direct book, DeStefano bridges the gap between personal development programs and Christian/Catholic spirituality. The result is a wake-up call to readers: an outcome-based motivational guide to living life to its fullest -- and holiest. DeStefano's practical, pull-no-punches approach to popular theology has been described as "Tony Robbins meets Thomas Aquinas."

    With candor and simplicity, DeStefano presents a 30-day program for attaining lifelong peace and fulfillment as well as (more importantly) eternal happiness in Heaven. The path proposed by DeStefano encourages consistent, purposeful, and prayerful action on the part of the reader and offers genuine hope to everyone, from ambivalent agnostics to engaged Evangelicals to the most fervent of Catholics.

    This is a book about getting results, about breaking out of self-delusion and taking small, practical steps to transform your life from head to soul. The author believes that as more and more people today struggle with depression and loneliness, self-help programs need to be less about "self-help" and more about "God's help." God, after all, is the Author of life. He knows what will make us happy -- and what won't.

    DeStefano utilizes the best personal-development tools available but balances and corrects them with Bible-based, faith-filled, time-tested, sacramental, Catholic principles. No matter how terrible your circumstances may be or how many times you've failed to achieve your goals in the past, this book will work for you.

    30-Day Eucharistic Revival: A Retreat with St. Peter Julian Eymard

    30-Day Eucharistic Revival: A Retreat with St. Peter Julian Eymard
    $15.95
    Several popes have referred to St. Peter Julian Eymard (1811-1868) as "the Apostle of the Eucharist." Nonetheless, he is not that well known in the universal Church. When it comes to worldwide recognition of his extraordinary life, as well as the many amazing things he did to foster a greater love for the Blessed Sacrament, most Catholics are unfamiliar with him and have never heard his name. That is about to change. 30-Day Eucharistic Revival is intended to help you, your children, your grandchildren, and all future generations rediscover and experience a revival of belief in the Real Presence, especially during the period of National Eucharistic Revival in the United States.

    33 Days to Greater Glory: A Total Consecration to the Father Through Jesus Based on the Gospel of John

    33 Days to Greater Glory: A Total Consecration to the Father Through Jesus Based on the Gospel of John
    Gaitley, Michael E, MIC
    $16.95

    In this third installment of his 33-day consecration series, Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, has saved the best for last! 33 Days to Greater Glory stands as the culmination of a trilogy of consecrations that begins with the massively popular manual of Marian entrustment, 33 Days to Morning Glory. Second in the series is 33 Days to Merciful Love, because Mary always leads us to Jesus, the Divine Mercy. Finally, because Jesus wants to bring us home to the Father, we arrive at 33 Days to Greater Glory. And this really is a case of saving the best for last, because a consecration to our Heavenly Father truly is the greater consecration, the one in which all others find their origin and end. Finally, as a bonus, Fr. Gaitley has also included his popular and easy-to-use novena of consecration to St. Joseph, Nine Days to Joseph, which helps us enter more fully into the Fatherhood of God.

    Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC, author of 33 Days to Morning Glory, one of the most popular Catholic books of the last decade, brings us his first new book in three years. 33 Days to Greater Glory completes a trilogy of consecrations: first to Mary, then to Jesus, the Divine Mercy, and now to God, our Father. This final consecration to our Heavenly Father truly is the "greater" consecration, the one in which all others find their origin and end.

    7 Secrets of Divine Mercy

    7 Secrets of Divine Mercy
    Flynn, Vinny
    $14.95

    In 2000, Pope John Paul II canonized the great 20th century visionary of Divine Mercy, Sister Faustina Kowalska, and proclaimed the Sunday after Easter to be celebrated annually as Divine Mercy Sunday. In 2006, Pope Benedict stressed that Divine Mercy is not a secondary devotion, but an integral dimension of Christian faith and prayer. Now Pope Francis has proclaimed an extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, which will begin on December 8, 2015. These three Popes have made it very clear that Divine Mercy is a major part of the Christian faith, and now this powerful new book reveals why.

    Best-selling author Vinny Flynn continues his popular 7 Secrets series with a book that brings him back to his roots. Vinny was one of the original editors of the official English edition of the actual Diary of St. Faustina, and he has written and edited a vast number of the Divine Mercy materials that are used today.

    Through his secrets of Divine Mercy, Vinny shows how Divine Mercy is not just another worthy private devotion; it is the key devotion, the umbrella devotion over everything else. Every other devotion in the Church, every ritual, every activity, every teaching is under that umbrella of Divine Mercy. It's all there to help us understand and enter into Divine Mercy. He shows us how everything in our lives can become more meaningful, more powerful, more life-changing once we really embrace the gift of Divine Mercy -- the overflow of love from the Holy Trinity.

    In this compelling and timely book, Flynn draws from Scripture, the teachings of the Church, and the Diary of St. Faustina to not only reveal the heart of Divine Mercy, but to offer you an invitation and a road map so that this mercy can transform your life.

    If you're not yet convinced of the impact Divine Mercy can have on your life, if you've never heard of this message and devotion, or if you're curious to learn more about it, this book is perfect for you. It shows us all how to respond to the call of Pope Francis to live lives shaped by mercy, and benefit greatly from the Year of Mercy.

    Abandonment to Divine Providence

    Abandonment to Divine Providence
    de Caussade, Jean-Pierre
    $18.00
    For more than 250 years, this simple classic of inspiration has guided readers of all faiths to the open-hearted acceptance of God's will that is the sure path to serenity, happiness, and spiritual peace.

    "A spiritual classic of the first order... a book for all those who truly seek God." --Dom David Knowles

    "Father de Caussade has a wonderful way of encouraging the doubtful, of nurturing the personal surrender that is so much a part of the development of faith. The book is a mystery of its own -- and is definitely not for Christians only." --Rabbi Joshua Chasan

    "Abandonment to Divine Providence is a classic perhaps more necessary now than ever before. It's a little book that rightly rejects the spirituality of fear and trembling (and the modern preoccupation with dreary self-absorption) in favor of an abiding trust in God's active benevolence. This is a work one reads again and again, always with gratitude and astonishment." --Donald Spoto, Author of Blue Angel and The Dark Side of Genius

    Abandonment to Divine Providence

    Abandonment to Divine Providence
    Caussade, Jean-Pierre De
    $12.95
    "Let go and let God." This popular phrase captures the essence of Father Jean-Pierre de Caussade's 18th century treatise on trust, Abandonment to Divine Providence.

    Do you doubt? Do you suffer? Are you anxious about the trials of life?

    Father de Caussade offers the one sure solution to any spiritual difficulty: abandon yourself entirely to God by embracing the duties of your station in life. With wisdom and gentleness he teaches how to practice complete submission to the will of God in every situation, whether we are beginners or seasoned travelers on the way of perfection. True abandonment, he explains, is a trusting, peaceful, and childlike surrender to the guidance of grace.

    Abandonment to Divine Providence

    Abandonment to Divine Providence
    De Caussade, Jean-Pierre
    $19.95

    God is to be found in the simplest of our daily activities and especially through total surrender to whatever is His will for each of us. That is the message of this 18th-century inspirational classic by Jean-Pierre de Caussade. Its encouragement to "live in the present moment," accepting everyday obstacles with faith, humility and love, has guided generations of believers to holiness and spiritual peace.

    This special volume of the famous spiritual treatise also includes the many insightful letters of Father de Caussade on the practice of self-abandonment. These numerous letters provide a great additional source of wisdom and practical guidance for how to grow in abandonment and to deepen our union with God in our daily lives.

    De Caussade shows that this practice of self-abandonment to God's will is the key to attaining true peace and virtue, and that it is readily available to all people - from beginners to those well advanced in the spiritual life. He also shows how to determine what God's will is for us. He reveals that it is not extraordinary feats that God expects for our growth in holiness, but rather heroic attention to every detail in our lives and humble acceptance of our daily lot in life as coming from His hand.

    The rich spiritual lessons in this book have stood the test of time, offering real and practical assistance to all people because its message is simple and clear, one that the reader will find to be a rare treasure of inspiration and direction to be referred to again and again.

    Abba's Heart: Finding Our Way Back to the Father's Delight
    Lozano, Matthew
    $16.99
    Discover and Embrace the Extravagant, Unconditional Love of the Father


    How is it that so many believers get stuck when it comes to entering into a relationship with God the Father? Rather than basking in the Father's endless love, compassion, and delight, we seem to hesitate, like orphaned children unsure of a place to call home.

    Neal Lozano breaks through the obstacles that keep us from growing in this pivotal relationship. He shatters fear and estrangement in his joyful exploration of Jesus's promise to show us his Father--and ours. It is a heartwarming journey, starting with the universal experience of loss and ending in the Father's welcoming arms as dearly loved children.

    Abide: A Pathway to Transformative Healing and Intimacy with Jesus

    Abide: A Pathway to Transformative Healing and Intimacy with Jesus
    Khym, Heather
    $17.95

    In this personal healing retreat from Heather Khym, cohost of the popular Abiding Together podcast, you are invited to break through the barriers that prevent you from trusting and experiencing the deep love of Jesus and be transformed by the freedom that comes when we vulnerably bring our entire selves to the foot of the Cross.

    Rooted in the teaching of Khym's Vancouver-based ministry, Life Restoration, Abide shares scripture, essential Catholic teaching, and the author's personal healing journey to reintroduce you to God as the Divine Healer, Restorer, and Miracle Worker. Khym offers you a compass to navigate your past as you dig into difficult memories that have disoriented your understanding of God and made you afraid to trust him. She challenges you to cast off your self-protective tendencies and to recognize your need for healing so you can be the person you were created to be.

    Jesus says, "Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit because apart from me you can do nothing" (John 15:4-5).

    We are meant to abide in Jesus, to unite ourselves to him. Yet over the course of our lives, we experience brokenness and loss, which lead us to doubt God's presence.

    Khym challenges you to step outside your comfort zone so that you can authentically:

  • recognize God as a loving father who desires your happiness;
  • practice spiritual and emotional vulnerability with Jesus;
  • invite the Divine Healer into your past and relationships;
  • acknowledge that you have an enemy who battles for your heart; and
  • overcome false beliefs about God and learn to trust Jesus as a compelling, captivating, and trustworthy lover of your soul.
  • Each chapter includes practical reflection-based exercises that help you recall troublesome memories, identify the roots of your feelings, and meditate on excerpts from scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. You'll come away with a renewed hope in the power of God to bring freedom to your fearful heart as you start to live a life restored in Christ, one that begins with and is sustained by an intimate relationship with Jesus.

    Absolute Surrender: The Blessedness of Forsaking All and Following Christ

    Absolute Surrender: The Blessedness of Forsaking All and Following Christ
    Murray, Andrew
    $15.99

    "My God, I am willing that You would make me willing."

    God waits to bless us in a way beyond what we expect. From the beginning, ear has not heard, neither has the eye seen, what God has prepared for those who wait for Him (Isaiah 64:4). God has prepared unheard of things, things you never can think of, blessings much more wonderful than you can imagine and mightier than you can conceive. They are divine blessings. Oh, come at once and say, "I give myself absolutely to God, to His will, to do only what God wants." God will enable you to carry out the surrender necessary, if you come to Him with a sincere heart.

    About the Author

    Andrew Murray (1828-1917) was a well-known South African writer, teacher, and pastor. More than two million copies of his books have been sold, and his name is mentioned among other great leaders of the past, such as Charles Spurgeon, T. Austin-Sparks, George Muller, D. L. Moody, and more.

    African Saints 40 Holy Men and Women
    Brown, Camille Lewis
    $15.99
    From the continent of Africa come a wealth of saints and other inspirational people included in the Catholic tradition.

Regardless of popularity, each holy person included in African Saints, African Stories displays perseverance in faith and can inspire us all.

    Dr. Camille Brown has chosen to share forty stories from hundreds, some for the first time, in this book. Each chapter provides a brief biography, a relevant Scripture passage, a prayer and reflection questions. The African men and women included are declared saints, blesseds or venerables in the Catholic church, as well as saints in waiting, those who have not yet received official recognition from the church but who contributed to the faith and are members of the communion of saints.

    An American Little Flower: Blessed Miriam Teresa Demjanovich

    An American Little Flower: Blessed Miriam Teresa Demjanovich
    $12.95

     On October 4, 2014, the first Beatification in the United States occurred. A young American religious, Sister Miriam Teresa, was declared a Blessed. 

    Born Teresa Demjanovich to loving immigrant parents, Blessed Miriam Teresa grew up in Bayonne, New Jersey, in the early twentieth century.  She witnessed events that changed the United States—such as the introduction of automobiles and motion pictures, the sabotaging of American industry during World War I, and the rise of the labor union movement. All the while, Teresa was discovering the unchanging reality of God’s love. 

    Like Thérèse of Lisieux, the Little Flower, Teresa learned that God wanted to be her friend and from an early age desired to become a Carmelite. Jesus longed to be with her, and she wanted to be with Him, whether she was studying, working, praying, or enjoying the company of friends. This was her secret to happiness, and to holiness. 

    In this 36th title in the acclaimed Vision Books series of stories of saints and heroes for youth 9-15 yrs. old, we learn the somewhat unknown and very inspiring story of sanctity in modern America through the life of this beloved young Sister of Charity of Saint Elizabeth.

    Apostle of the Crucified Lord: A Theological Introduction to Paul and His Letters

    Apostle of the Crucified Lord: A Theological Introduction to Paul and His Letters
    Gorman, Michael J
    $53.99

    Unlike the many books that treat the apostle Paul merely as a historical figure and his letters as literary relics, this new study by Michael Gorman focuses on the theological message of Paul’s writings, particularly what they have to say to the contemporary church.

    An innovative and comprehensive treatment of Paul, including commentary on all of the Pauline letters, Gorman’s Apostle of the Crucified Lord unpacks the many dimensions of Paul’s thought carefully and holistically. Six introductory chapters provide background discussion on Paul’s world, his résumé, his letters, his gospel, his spirituality, and his theology, while the main body of the book covers in turn and in full detail each of the Pauline epistles. Gorman gives the context of each letter, offers a careful reading of the text, and colors his words with insightful quotations from earlier interpreters of Paul.

    Enhancing the text itself are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter and numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout. All in all, Apostle of the Crucified Lord is the ideal book for students and any other readers interested in seriously engaging Paul’s challenging letters.

    THIS COMPREHENSIVE, WIDELY USED TEXT by Michael Gorman presents a theologically focused, historically grounded interpretation of the apostle Paul and raises significant questions for engaging Paul today. After providing substantial background information on Paul's world, career, letters, gospel, spirituality, and theology, Gorman covers in full detail each of the thirteen Pauline epistles. Enhancing the text are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter as well as numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout.

    The new introduction in this second edition helpfully situates the book within current approaches to Paul. Gorman also brings the conversation up-to-date with major recent developments in Pauline studies and devotes greater attention to themes of participation, transformation, resurrection, justice, and peace.

    At Home in This Life: Finding Peace at the Crossroads of Unraveled Dreams and Beautiful Surprises

    At Home in This Life: Finding Peace at the Crossroads of Unraveled Dreams and Beautiful Surprises
    Greer, Jerusalem Jackson
    $18.99
    In another 'Benedict Option' the author shares about her hunger for a deeper spiritual life, how Benedictine spirituality has shaped her practice, and the ways she has learned to embody Christian spirituality in everyday life. --James Matichuk

    Foreword by Shauna Niequist

    In the midst of beauty and mess, chaos and monotony, celebrations and mourning, Jerusalem Greer tells her story of finding redemption in what is rather than what could be, by practicing the presence of God through rediscovering ancient contemplative teachings and practices (solitude, study, work, prayer, and service) and pairing them with domestic arts (baking, gardening, sewing). Jerusalem writes with a raw honesty that reassures readers they are not alone in feeling not good enough, not wise enough, not Christian enough to figure out God's plans. Jerusalem is active on Facebook and Pinterest and regularly posts on her blog 'Slow Living in a Fast World' where she records what she calls her "beautymess" attempts at living a sacramental life.

    Attaining Heaven: What It Is and How to Get There

    Attaining Heaven: What It Is and How to Get There
    McCarthy, John P
    $15.95

    Here is the one book you need to grasp the illimitable joys of Heaven - and to discover how to get there. You will learn here what Scripture unveils and what the Church's greatest saints have written about Heaven and its joys, as well as the reason you'll experience bliss, happiness, delights of every kind, satisfaction of all desires, joy unbounded, and pleasure in Heaven.

    While any true understanding or appreciation of the joys of Heaven is impossible to us, this book unpacks the many hints of Heaven from Scripture and the saints to provide abundant matter for your meditations. You'll learn that Heaven consists almost entirely of spiritual ideas that cannot be grasped without meditation -- and even then only by one who is not preoccupied with this world and its goods.

    Fr. J. P. McCarthy does more than explain what Heaven is - he provides clear guidance on what you can do to secure it. You will learn what to pray for, how to flourish in the virtues of faith, hope, and love, how to experience the depths of God's love for you, and how to be filled with the fortitude you need to live for a happy eternity.

    By reading and meditating on these pages, you will grow in your knowledge of God and will soon contemplate the mysteries of the Holy Trinity in a deeper, more fruitful way. You'll also learn:

    • What the "lesser joys of Heaven" are
    • Why love is the only theological virtue you can take from earth to Heaven
    • What it means to store up treasures in Heaven
    • What the Beatific Vision means

    Best of all, you will discover your true home in Heaven, where you will be welcomed into the friendship of loved ones, the angels, and saints, who await your arrival. You will abide in the total bliss of God's love for you in the eternal wedding banquet and enjoy the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
