Sacred Pauses: A Spiritual Practice for Personal Renewal by April Yamaski. In a fast paced world full of distractions, spiritual practice can help us become more centered-more in touch with ourselves and others, with the world around us and more in touch with God. The author begins with her own longing for personal renewal. What would it take to feel renewed every day? Instead of waiting for a vacation to smooth out the tensions of life, instead of waiting until the end of the week to shed our weariness, what if we could time out every day? Live a renewed life every day? Be refreshed by God every day? With plenty of stories from real life and ideas to try, this book is personal and practical.
