New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Rhythms of Growth
365 Meditations to Nurture the Soul
• October 2014
eBook (Available in ePub or Kindle)
In Rhythms of Growth, Linda Douty uses the seasons of the year to illustrate natural trends in our spiritual lives. For winter, she writes about themes of rootedness, fallow times, reflection; for spring—awakening, planting, new growth, storms; for summer—bearing fruit, abundance, blossoming, weeding, and pests; for fall—letting go, sifting, harvesting. Douty's conversational style and ability to bring together the everyday and the holy make this book appealing for anyone who wants a devotional book that is applicable to everyday life.
Linda Douty is the author of three books; Praying in the Messiness of Life: 7 Ways to Renew Your Relationship with God, How Can I Let Go If I Don't Know I'm Holding On?–Setting Our Souls Free, and How Can I See the Light When It's So Dark?–Journey to a Thankful Heart. A book reviewer, retreat leader, and spiritual director, Linda also leads workshops on topics ranging from aging and personal growth to spiritual formation. She lives in Memphis, Tennessee.
