A look at the spiritual, emotional, and philosophical implications of end-of-life care by an elegant and literary writer who is a hospital chaplain.
As a hospital chaplain, Amy Wright Glenn has been present with those suffering from suicide, trauma, disease, and unforeseen accidents and has been witness to the intense grief and powerful insights that so often accompany loss. She weaves together memoir, philosophical inquiry, and cutting-edge research on death/dying to chronicle how we, as individuals and as a culture, handle everything from grief to mortality.
This is not your Nana's praybook. Have you given up on prayer? Does it feel like God ignores you? Have you stopped believing in God? Could it be that you aren't broken, you have just been using the wrong tools or the right tools ineffectively?
Brandon Kneefel breaks down myths about what prayer is and explains how to do it most effectively. "Defining Moments" is all about standing in the light of the Spirit when it matters most, offering prayers around relationships and work, to dealing with finances or grief.
Brandon Kneefel is a Certified Spiritual Counselor and Practitioner with Inspire Spiritual Communities who draws upon his experiences from homelessness and addiction, to coming out and even his time on reality TV to offer tools and examples on how to use the words of prayer to redirect your life.
Prayer is practical when you know that thoughts inform your feelings and feelings inform your actions, and prayer alters those root thoughts. Brandon believes that we have inside of us all we need to realize our dreams and to live beautiful, loving and powerful lives. The sun can come out at any time, the light can burst forth and your reality can be altered dramatically, all you have to do is turn inward and open your eyes to the truth of who you are.
