In the spirit of gospel teaching on time, talent, and treasure, bestselling author Marci Alborghetti weaves together wisdom, humor, personal stories, and a series of attainable goals in this vision of Christian action that is at once a beautiful meditation on spiritual growth and a common-sense guide to discovering practical ways to serve.
What began with a traumatic home robbery became Marci Alborghetti’s first step on a journey toward a deep commitment to Christian service. Part spiritual memoir and part exhortation, A Willing Heart: How to Serve When You Think You Can't is for anyone who feels overwhelmed at the prospect of one more item on the weekly calendar, and for those who worry that they might not have much to offer. Alborghetti, the popular Guideposts writer and author of Prayer Power: How to Pray When You Think You Can't, offers an inspiring invitation to personal growth through Christian action that is sensible, realistic, and joyful.
Each chapter presents a three-part structure of theme, story, and one practical, entirely doable step toward service. Replete with inspiring vignettes from Alborghetti’s life and the lives of the saints, as well as suggestions that begin in your own living room, A Willing Heart: How to Serve When You Think You Can't will help you implement the practice of compassion in everyday life and is ideally suited for faith-sharing groups, parish retreats, and leadership training seminars.
