Reclaim Regret - How God Heals Life's Disappointments
Reflecting on the life you've lived so far might be an exercise wrought with guilt, frustration, disappointment, and regret. When these feelings hinder your spiritual strength and closeness to God, you might feel stuck in all areas of life. This book by bestselling author Sr. Kathryn Hermes can lead you along the path of reshaping those regrets in the context of your life story. Real-world examples, powerful meditations, and Sr. Kathryn's own experiences can transform that feeling of midlife stagnation into spiritual liberation.
This helpful guide uses narrative, sacred scripture, and prayer to explore the hopeful journey of emerging from shame and disappointment from life choices. Learn about God's four promises to you that will help you forgive yourself, encounter God's love and healing, and embrace spiritual freedom.
