Some invitations we desperately want: "Will you marry me?" "Would you consider a promotion?" Other invitations we never want to receive but must respond to all the same: "What treatment do you want for your tumor?" Invitations pound away at the coastlines of the soul with a transforming force. God is also sending invitations. Sometimes they seem less compelling than anything on my to-do list. Why would I want to say yes to the invitation to rest when I'm already so far behind? Why follow when I could lead? Why accept invitations to weep or to admit I am wrong or to wait? Saying yes might slow me down, sabotage my agenda and even undo who I think I am. Adele Calhoun, author of the popular Spiritual Disciplines Handbook, offers a book about invitations like these—divine invitations we miss or ignore because we've said yes to going with the cultural flow. While these invitations from God can sometimes be difficult to accept, they can heal and restore even as they shape where we go, what we do and who we become. What we say yes to, what we say no to forms the terrain of our future. Included in this book are reflection questions and exercises as well as overview charts with recommended disciplines to guide you through each theme. As you attend to the often hidden, quiet voice of the Great Inviter, you will find yourself as God created you to be.

Much has been written for adults about their spiritual formation and about the practice of classic spiritual disciplines. Very little has been written for adults who work with children on how to guide children in practices that form their spirit toward Christlikeness. Spiritual Disciplines for Children offers readers the tools they need personally-and the tools they need practically-to guide children in Christian spiritual formation using twelve spiritual disciplines. Concrete activities for readers to do with their children are provide at the end of every chapter. Reproducible pages are also included at the end of some chapters. These activities offer children enjoyable and meaningful experiences. Guided conversation ideas are a part of each activity to help adults build relationships and understanding and communicate on a child's level. The subject matter is serious, inspirational, and practical. It is intended to inspire and equip adult Christian readers to begin the practice of spiritual disciplines with intentionality and commitment in their lives and in their children's lives. The challenge is given to continue in these practices until, in both adult and child, they become lifelong patterns and habits. These patterns and habits allow the Holy Spirit to form their spirit and character toward Christlikeness and a closer, more intimate relationship with God.
