Journal Provides Necessary Tools to Develop Strong Character
It’s not about what you do. It’s about who you are while you’re doing it.
Author Tara Schiro with Xulon Press will publish Write Your Life With Grace: Fruit of the Spirit Guided Journal, in October 2017. This yearlong journal is designed to harmonize your inner life with your outer life. It offers profound wisdom into planning and developing a mature character. Based on the nine fruit of the Spirit plus three extra disciplines – gratitude, forgiveness, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control and humility – this 12-month journal provides interactive sections offering deep questions, inspiring quotations and insightful observations to heal and improve your personal, spiritual and emotional life.
Each month begins with a short explanation of a Spiritual discipline alongside the artwork of local artist Katie Roen. Four weekly concepts and daily integrations capture the heart and soul of the monthly discipline to discern how the inner life is affecting the outer circumstances, either positively or negatively.
“Starting with ‘January: A Month of Gratitude,’ and ‘February: A Month of Forgiveness,’ was essential to the progression of the rest of the journal,” says author, Tara Schiro. “Gratitude and forgiveness are not listed in the fruit of the Spirit because they are a choice. Once we choose them, space opens up for love, joy, peace and the rest to take residence in our soul. We can’t be bitter and peaceful at the same time. It’s one or the other. So it’s important to start by removing what holds us back, specifically an ungrateful and unforgiving heart.”
Write Your Life With Grace: Fruit of the Spirit Guided Journal may be purchased through www.Amazon.com, www.BarnesandNoble.com and www.XulonPress.com/Bookstore. Retailers may order through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors.
Schiro also published No Arms, No Legs, No Problem, the memoir of bronze-medal Paralympian, Bob Lujano. Her latest profile article was recently published in the October/November issue of élite Magazine on legacy runner Don Vulich. She blogs at www.TaraSchiro.com.
