    The note of forward from Brene Brown is worth the book in and of itself! She sites that there are two major patterns that emerge across all of Henris letters: 1. loving and listening to God and, 2. Carving out God-centered time in our lives. In this book, Henri encourages us to make time for listening, prayer, solitude, contemplation and thought. These are things that are so difficult to do in our society today and yet so important for leading a God-centered and contented life.

    These letters contain a personal glimpse into Henri Nouwen's life. He covers the topics of death, grief, busyness, strengthening your faith, suffering and many other topics while providing encouragement and prayers to all that he encounters. It is an intimate portrait of a man who lived with great purpose, great thought and great faith.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for this fair and unbiased review.
