Matching Words with Action

Book cover of Putting Joy into Practice

Do your everyday actions match up with what you say you want to be in the world? On this morning’s walk, let’s talk about what your life can look like when they do. By the way, a special shout out to my friend Phoebe Farag Mikhail, author of the new book, Putting Joy into Practice: Seven Ways to Lift Your Spirit from the Early Church. (Paraclete Press) Writing the book took longer than Phoebe planned because she wanted to ensure she was walking her talk. In the epilogue she shares how her writing slowed when she realized she was weighed down by life’s cares and not seeking her own joy and indeed was far from it. The book has a marvelous authenticity as a result. Bravo Phoebe!
