On target

We need the message in this book of encountering Jesus throughout every day. Our walk with Jesus means having a relationship with Him, which can only be sustained by encountering Jesus in everything that we do. The authors did an excellent job of showing what our relationship with Jesus should look like. Thank you!!

Trust in God

Trust is my word in my centering prayer portion of my adoration hour and a half each Friday. This is where I try to be quiet, be present, and listen to God. I found this book helpful in doing that better. I am familiar with Fr. Pivonka from the first Sunday of the month program Faith and Reason from Franciscan University on EWTN but found Deacon Poyo's reflections equally compelling; in particular chapter 12 ion guiding me towards discipleship with Jesus.

Great book

This book has made me think of what I need to do to follow Christ. I thought I was doing good, but has found that I am lacking..I will try to do better

This is a powerful tool for both personal growth and exploration as well as a small group discussion!
