Reading scripture has to be more than gaining information. Mullholland teaches his readers ways to read and engage with scripture that brings about a formational approach.
"The Gift of Being Yourself"

This book is a great example of how psychology and spirituality go together. Through the process of understanding ourselves better we are able to see and know God deeper. A small but powerful book.
"To Bless the Space
To borrow someone else's prayers allows us to speak and connect in ways that we sometimes struggle with in our own words. O'Donohue brings his Celtic traditions into his beautiful book of blessings that journey through many of life's transitions and emotions.

How do we experience God in our everyday life experiences? Barbara Brown Taylor gives us practical examples for how she has connected to the Divine in her simple daily activities. Plus, she is a beautiful writer.
"Discovering Your Personality Type"
Don Richard Riso &
Enneagram work has helped me better understand myself and those around me. This is a comprehensive book that gives the reader an understanding of how and why the enneagram is so helpful. There is a quiz to help the reader self-identify, but the rest of the book helps to confirm that. Highly recommend for those exploring this great tool.
These are just a few to give you a taste for what I have found helpful. There are times when one resource might be a better fit then others and I am happy to direct you to something more tailored and helpful for the greatest benefit.
