Sometimes in quiet moments I wonder, how did I get to be this old?" With this universal question, best-selling author, spiritual master, and recent octogenarian Gunilla Norris invites us to join her on an enlightening exploration of growing older. A must-read for anyone entering the second half of life, The Light of Evening reminds us that aging offers the unique opportunity to wake up to what really matters and embrace the freedom and grace of living in the light of God's love.


About Great Love in Little Ways

Is there anything more needed in our world today than kindness? In this little gem of a book, best-selling author and spiritual guide, Gunilla Norris helps us learn to cultivate kindness in all aspects of our daily lives upon waking to the sunshine, through our work and daily bread, when offering a safe space to a friend. Great Love in Little Ways is a book to savor and read over again as it broadens our awareness of God s kind and loving presence in today's sometimes harsh and chaotic world.

About Care and Prayer
