Spiritual ‘power couple’ Fr. Nicholas and Dr. Roxanne Louh, a parish priest and psychologist, have combined their considerable personal and professional experience to create a book which naturally and seamlessly integrates psychology, physiology and faith. The Louhs address the challenge of how to envision and create a life of purpose and satisfaction which soars above and beyond what we might imagine possible. Practical guidelines, proven methods and various techniques provide a flight plan to conquer our ruts, inaction, excuses and bad habits. Employing solid scientific information, relatable examples from daily life, biblical insights and spiritual inspiration, the Louhs encourage us to climb into the pilot's seat of our own lives, to grasp the controls, to wing upwards and to soar to the heights of the God-given potentiality within each of us.
Dr. James C. Skedros
This exceptionally readable book refashions the wisdom of the Orthodox spiritual tradition for those resident in the noisy and often distracting world of day-to-day living. An enjoyable and practical guide for personal and spiritual growth, Renewing You, needs to be read with intention or it will become yet another book of self-improvement collecting dust on our shelves.
