A Willing Heart will help you implement the practice of compassion in everyday life.

  Grounded in God: A Mature Experience of Faith by Jim Cavera and Ann Cavera
Looking toward the "golden years," most people hope to fulfill dreams they never had time for. Yet upon reaching that stage of life, many find that the longed-for leisure is impeded by bills that just never stop coming or occupied by elderly parents who need care. But one aspect of life that does seem to get better is faith. As things get worse, prayer comes more easily; as life gets more complicated, it is easier to trust in God. Grounded in God is a book of reflections dedicated to the growth of faith, hope, and love, and laughter in the second half of life. It is a collection of 50 articles, which were selected form over 400 the authors have published in Catholic newspaper columns throughout the country. The personal experiences shared here are down-to-earth and easy-to-read. Instead of focusing on the end of life, this book helps readers focus on living life to the end. Through ever-deepending faith, every day becomes an adventure.

  Finding the On-Ramp to Your Spiritual Path: A Road Map to Joy and Rejuvenation by Jan Phillips
Says the publisher: As study after study continues to show, Americans are increasingly becoming unaffiliated with any specific religion. Finding the On-Ramp to Your Spiritual Path: A Road Map to Joy and Rejuvenation provides an access point for these individuals who have broken free of traditional religion and are looking to embark on a more generalized form of spirituality.

It reframes the spiritual path with broader parameters so the millions of Americans who have left traditional religions can feel included in a community of faith, albeit non-traditional and borderless. It's a great gift book for anyone who is disenchanted with instititutional religion and looking for ways to be faithful and spiritual in this complex world.

God Will Provide: How God's Bounty Opened to Saints and 9 Ways It Can Open for You Too by PatriciaTreece
A specialist in human goodness and recent saints, Patricia Treece offers the fruits of years of research on how God meets the material needs, in varying ways, of His people. Mother Teresa of Calcutta, for instance, refused to let anyone raise money in her name, insisting if God wanted something done through her, He'd send the money. Other friends of God did seek donations and got them in amazing ways. Most intriguing of all, Treece found people living quietly anonymous lives secure in God's providence. From them she has learned to live that way, too. In this lively book she offers copious examples of ten universal principles to live by so you can join those who know, in good times or bad, "God will provide."
