    2. This book had some really great and practical tips for getting closer to God. The chapter on the Holy Spirit was my favorite.

    3. solid read ! got it as a free gift at a Catholic Men's Conference - the author uses very easy language making the book overall flow very nicely. Recommend as a devotional read :)

    4. This was a book I gave very many years ago to my mother and it had a huge impact on her life. I also found it very good.
