Too often, spirituality is thought of as something otherworldly, conceptual and mystical. Certainly, spirituality is all these things, but it's also a way of approaching life. Spirituality can be a practical, down-to-earth array of attitudes, techniques and tools that make this life truly a heaven on earth. Especially in times of chaos and change, whether personally or in our world in general, there is a great need for solace, inspiration and reassurance that there is a way to make things better along with guidance on how to achieve that “better.”
This is what Sermon on the Molehill offers you. It shows how using spiritual principles in our daily life makes living more abundant, enjoyable and downright fun. The book is filled with co-author Rev. Cathy Jean Norman’s stories, anecdotes and spiritual principles that are immediately relatable. In collaboration with Dr. Noelle Nelson, Sermon on the Molehill shows you how to apply these principles to your own life. Whether the subject is love, money, facing fear, guilt, making choices, forgiveness, accepting change or finding grace, Sermon on the Molehill seeks to address whatever particular concerns you may be experiencing.
"Sermon on the Molehill is a most special book. It is an inspirational treasure for anyone looking for affirmative, yet insightful, teachings about living a more peaceful and gratifying life. Rev. Cathy Jean Norman and Dr. Noelle Nelson have created a wonderful, relatable road map to a life of Peace, Joy, Balance and Harmony. And, it is a really delightful read!"--Rev.
