I've kept a series of journals since childhood. While my record keeping regularity runs in fits and starts, if I have a big move or a broken heart it's a certainty that I will be journaling about it. One of my favorite books on the profound results that come through journaling is Julie Cameron's The Artist's Way. If you are an aspiring writer or artist, chances are great that you've read TAW or at the very least are familiar with Morning Pages, a delightful writing excercise created by Ms. Cameron in which you are encouraged to write three pages every morning to unload baggage, unblock, and clear the way to create.
Open to the Sprit is like reading a letter from a friend. McKnight writes a very accessible introduction to the Holy Spirit and its role in our spiritual life. McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk. A terrific book for those seeking an introduction to a relationship with the Holy Spirit.
