Jessica Powers (1905-1988) entered the Carmel of the Mother of God in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1941. For forty-seven years, she lived a contemplative life of prayer and fasting, of community and sacrifice, indeed, a life of faith, hope, and love. Her Scotch-Irish background marked her with both humour and melancholy, but her heart was centred on the mystery of God. God graced Jessica Powers with a poetic heart. Year after year, her words captured various aspects of our human journey: birth and death, love and fear, sin and grace, joy and sorrow. Jessica Powers was extremely perceptive; few things escaped her attentive mind and heart. Graced with an agile pen, she was able to transpose life's experiences into verses that have enriched thousands of people's lives. We all stand in need of models and mentors, of witnesses of gospel living and wise guides. Although she would never have claimed this title, Jessica Powers is a mentor. Through her insights and creative writings, she has left us a legacy of wisdom that can sustain us on life's long pilgrimage. Though a cloistered contemplative, now deceased some twenty years, she continues to teach us many things about the ways of God and the wonders of God's world.

Gleaning key experiences from 21 diverse spiritual guides (including Saint John of the Cross, Teilhard de Chardin, Evelyn Underhill, Dag Hammarskjold, Mother Teresa, Saint Peter Julian Eymard, Yves Congar, Dietrich Bonhoeffer - ), he shows how each teacher's unique approach contributes to the beauty of how we can return God's love for us. A profound collection of spiritual lessons, Notes of Thanksgiving will call you to prayer, to gratitude, and to a renewed awareness of how to allow God's will to govern your life.

This gentle story about a workaholic beaver will charm kids while capturing adults with its humorous but wise lesson for all ages. Barry Beaver has almost literally one word in his vocabulary: work., He works seven days a week, straight through the Sabbath. He's convinced that he is doing his best to provide the good life for his wife, Beulah Beaver, and their eight handsome beaver children. As he toils, he mutters a string of work-related aphorisms like "When a job is once begun, never leave until it's done". Work is the only thing he understands. Nudged by the other animals, Barry at last comes to see all that he's been missing. He's resistant at first ("Too many words in a beaver's head: a dangerous thing, a thing to dread"). His wife, Beulah Beaver, nudges as well, telling him that though he may work hard out of love, having no time to show that love is not good. Finally Barry learns a new word; enough -- as in Enough is enough!
