Product Description

For the past decade, Susan Taylor, editor in chief of Essenxe magazine, has written "In the Spirit", one of magazine's most popular columns. Each month she shares her thoughts on developing inner awareness for the wisdom and clarity needed to create a deeply satisfying and fulfilling life. Susan Taylor connects with the reader in a voice that is sisterly, informed and motivating. She challenges her readers to transcend their fears, to face inevitable challenges with courage, and to use change as an oppurtunity to grow. "We are not powerless spectators of life. We are cocreators with God, and all around us are the gifts, the clay, that we can use to shape our world." Susan Taylor's editorials are often intimate - sharing her own loves, trials and triumphs, and the lessons she's learned and always grounding, helping many to balance work demands with personal needs for family and friendship. In The Spirit will inspire readers to improve their emotional and spiritual health.

Publisher's Description

Twenty-two lifelines to personal growth and fulfillment from the editor in chief of Essence magazine.

When Susan L. Taylor rose to editor in chief of Essence magazine more than a decade ago, she began writing an editorial column in which she shares her thoughts and feelings about how developing one's inner awareness ensures the wisdom and clarity needed to create a deeply satisfying and fulfilling life.

The monthly column called "In the Spirit" is one of the most popular in the magazine.

Susan L. Taylor connects with the reader in a personal and meaningful way, in a voice that is sisterly, informed, and motivating. She challenges her readers to transcend their fears, to face inevitable challenges in their lives courageously, and to use change as an opportunity to grow. "We limit ourselves because change may well mean dealing with the disapproval of the very people we rely on for support. Often words of inspiration and motivation, but she also suggests specific methods for working through problems and improving our emotional and spiritual health.

"We are not powerless spectators of life. We are co-creators with God, and all around is are the gifts, the clay, that we can use to shape our world," she says.

Susan L. Taylor writes passionately about what she has seen and learned in the course of her travels throughout the United States, Caribbean, and Africa. Her essays have helped many to balance the demanding world of work and business with the personal world of family and friendship. She shares bits of her own life--her loves, her trails, and triumphs--and the lessons she's learned.

Many of Susan L. Taylor's readers already collect her editorials and find in them a source of encouragement, self-affirmation, empowerment, and peace of mind. Now they can have new essays and a few previously published favorites elegantly bound in a gift-sized paperback edition to keep for themselves or to give as a gift of love to those who are special to them.
