The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Pray, Decide, and Don't Worry: Five Steps to Discerning God's Will - Bobby Angel, Jackie Angel, Father Mike Schmitz - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Pray, Decide, and Don't Worry:

How to figure out what God's telling you to do.

My favorite quote (from Pope Benedict XVI) about discernment:

"Each of us is the result of a thought of God. Each of us is willed. Each of us is loved. Each of us is necessary."
Pope Benedict XVI

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What do you want to do?

Is what you want REALLY what you want?

My review of Pray, Decide, and Don't Worry:

Based upon St. Ignatius of Loyola's Discernment of Spirits.

A good guide for the basics of discernment.

Great perspective changer.
