Healthy Spirituality Gift Guide
Gifts to Feed Your and Your Friends’ Faith
I love giving and sharing great gift ideas, knowing I am nourishing both my faith and those of my loved ones and friends. Below are some ideas I have recently compiled for holiday gift giving. Hope you enjoy this special edition of Healthy Spirituality.
The Absolute Find of the Year – My Pick
Shacke Packing Cubes – What did I ever do without these? My clothes are less wrinkled (though they have a few creases when I rush the packing) and fit into smaller suitcases. I love this product!
The products created by Dayspring are wonderful. Here are just a few neat ideas:
A great jewelry collection. I especially like the “Be Thou my Vision Necklace” as that is one of my most favorite hymns.
Word Matter Letter Box Collection of wall art is both inspirational and beautiful.
Since my fourth grandchild was born in October I have been going crazy with Christian baby gift ideas. Check out what Dayspring offers for newborns here.
Books – Always the Perfect Gift Idea
Here are a few of my favorite book finds that I purchased in 2016:
Mere Spirituality – the Spiritual Life According to Henri Nouwen by Wil Hernadaz. I recently used this book as the foundation for a multi-day retreat. Lots to ponder and learn from these words.
Henri Nouwen: Eight Essential Titles – a collection of 8 of the book by my favorite author.
Word by Word: A Daily Spiritual Practice by Marilyn McEntyre. I am using this plus the book listed below for my morning devotions.
Desert Banquet – A Year of Wisdom from the Desert Mothers and Fathers by David Keller. I have learned so much from this book and my walk with these ancient wise ones.
Conquer Your Year – the Ultimate Planner by Natalie MacNeil. I’m using this planner currently.
Altar in the World – A Geography of Faith by Barbara Brown Taylor. My small group is slowly reading this and loving it.
A Few Fun Things I Purchased this Year
Fun Socks –Bookworm Socks – I bought this for a sock hop at a writers conference and they still make me smile and keep my toes warm.
Fair Trade Coffee – Don’t come between a girl and her coffee, especially when she is writing.
Coloring Books – Adult coloring books are quite the rage
Candleberry Hot Maple Toddy Candles – makes my office smell delightful and lasts a long time
And I always am looking for spiral bound lined journals. Journaling is an essential faith practice for me and I am encouraging even my 7-year-old granddaughter to start.
Self-Serving Plug – The Books I Published Recently
Christmas Seasoning: 101 Quotes and Prayer to Flavor the Holidays
Spiritual Retreats: A Guide to Slowing Down to be with God.
