Do you love reading great books? Are you especially drawn to reading books that will inspire you and empower you? What about having conversations online with others who are reading these books, too?  Does participating in an online book club like this sound interesting to you? GOOD!

I have great news for all of the souls who have ever so patiently inquired about the status of the book club that I announced.

Yes! Yes! Yes! The book club will be active and much more interactive!

After reflecting as to how best to utilize technology for the book club going forward it became clear to me that we need to have a home base as well as a viable structure and a plan. I decided to dedicate the Living In Spiritual Perspective blog (here) to serve as the home base for the book club. This way anyone can come here to see the book of the month, see the questions I’ve posed for consideration, comment and also review the thoughts and comments of others.

Now that I’m  more familiar with the blog platform as well as the new facebook and twitter, this seems like the best plan. We can still use facebook to and twitter to continue the conversations that start here. We may even have scheduled LIVE tweetups and facebook discussions if that’s what you’d like. I figured it best to start with the basic structure and plan that is workable. We can always add on more if/as we’re inspired. Being that I AM a twitterhead, I will certainly be tweeting using #HTCBookClub throughout the month. You all can, too.

How does that sound? I  do not want to make any assumptions as to what you all like and want. That being said, please take a moment to share your thoughts in the comments. Are you interested in following along each month for a book recommendation and then commenting here with the online community? Would you be interested in having LIVE scheduled tweetups and/or facebook discussions? Do you even use facebook? If so, would you join a facebook group for HTCBookClub  and engage in dialogue there? Do you tweet and/or prefer to have a scheduled tweetup each month using #HTCBookClub? Holler!

"The Prayer That Jesus Prayed" by Robert YarbroughI am charged full of inspiration this morning after reading “The Prayer That Jesus Prayed” by Robert Yarbrough! Once I opened this book I simply could not put it down until I had read every last word! It is full of golden keys of understanding about God and spiritual living as affirmed in what is called “The Lord’s Prayer”  or Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount” found in Luke 11:2-4 and Matthew 6:9-15 in the Bible.

Following is a taste of the gems contained in this book:

“It is upon our realization that God has provided each and everyone of us with innate spiritual gifts that we must use in this experience called life that are the keys to our individual kingdom experience.”

“Forgiveness facilitates our being able to not hold anything against ourselves or against others. When we hold something against ourselves or others it weighs us down. Forgive, let go and move on. Meaning that if you want to experience the freeing power of forgiveness in your life then you have got to forgive.”

“Heaven is that state of consciousness in harmony with the thoughts of God [Good]. Heaven is the conscious awareness of peace, harmony, love, health, and prosperity flowing forth in my life at all times.”

Love,

Open Your Mind To Receive by Catherine Ponder

Continuing to provide useful tips and resources to support the accomplishment of all that you seek to be, receive and achieve in the new year I share this wonderful book by Catherine Ponder, Open Your Mind to Receive.

Have you ever read a book that contains ideas which continue to impact your life more than 10 years later and you can actually see tangible results from reading it?

10 years after my first read, I continue to practice many of the principles shared in this book. I have even personalized an affirmation from the first chapter (first printed in Florence Scovel Shinn’s books) that I use everyday:

“Nothing is too good to be true, nothing is too wonderful to happen, nothing is too great to last.”

Love,
Shawna Marie
