Okay I have to admit that when I read this obituary, I was a tad bit jealous of Mary Anne Nolan. Hardly a day goes by that I don't find myself sighing and wishing I could close my eyes and not wake up until 2017. Of course things might be a whole lot worse by then!
What does this have to do with the purpose of this particular blog? Nothing really, except to say that we live in some strange and difficult times. And that is why I am so excited about the release of my new book, The Wired Soul: Finding Spiritual Balance in a Hyperconnected Age. In some ways I believe this may be the most important book I've written, and it is definitely the most relevant. Here is what Stephen Maccia, author of Becoming a Healthy Church and President of Leadership Transformations had to say about it:
Thank you, Tricia, for lovingly inviting us to take the sugar-filled pacifier called technology out of our mouths tberefore it completely rots our roots and destroys our ability to chew, savor and swallow what our souls genuinely crave much more than our hyper-tech-saturated culture compels us to consume. Your masterful modernization of ancient spiritual practices will undoubtedly transform a digital revolution into a soulful renewal for all of your readers.
You can read more and see what Leonard Sweet and Gary Moon had to say about the book at www.thewiredsoul.com! I am so passionate about this book that I am doing SOMETHING I'VE NEVER DONE BEFORE, which is to invite you to help me launch it so we can get it into the hands of as many people as possible.
I will be offering several incentives to those who sign up--like an exclusive look at my Five Day Digital Detox plan or my God-Focused Deep Breathing video, plus you'll get the first chapter emailed to you immediately! And all you have to do is let your friends and family know about the book through email, personal contact or social media--and I'll help you with some resources to do so.
And for all those who do the four simple things I ask, there will be a raffle with some amazing prizes to help you slow down and get some balance for the health of your soul. If you want more information or to find out about the great prizes, click here. Otherwise, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get back to you! Finally, in case you haven't already, you can preorder your book on Amazon here.
