Most Catholics are quite comfortable with the idea of encountering God with hearts and minds. Using the heart or brain to “sense” God’s presence doesn’t feel like a stretch. But the notion of finding God with our five senses—sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste—could seem strange indeed. In fact, it might even seem worldly or downright wrong. In Taste and See, Ginny Kubitz Moyer beautifully counters this common misunderstanding. Using personal stories, anecdotes, and Scripture, she demonstrates how the five senses are a powerful, biblically based means for us to encounter God, not only as we practice our faith but also as we participate in the “messy splendor” of daily life. Each sense is allotted five chapters, each of which highlights a different experience of that sense. Every chapter concludes with Ignatian Examen-inspired prayer steps that encourage us to recognize and reflect upon God’s presence and goodness in the physical world. From roses to the rosary, from candle smoke to Communion wine, Taste and See helps readers truly find God in all things—from the mundane to the sublime.

As girls enter their tween and teen years, it’s especially important for them to have an open and growing relationship with their father. Unfortunately, this is often the time when parental relationships are strained. The One Year Father-Daughter Devotions can foster communication and understanding; and it’s a wonderful way for a father to bond with his daughter during a crucial point in her life. Each of the 365 devotions begins with an introductory story, then daddy-daughter time provides discussion questions, activities, or other practical applications of the daily lesson. A “What’s the Word” section gives a related Bible verse to help bring God’s Word alive as father and daughter apply the Scripture to their lives. Written by three fathers, the devotions have a tone that is conversational and relatable: the authors use everything from flavored potato chips to the Etch-A-Sketch game to share truths about God’s Word and to help fathers and daughters relate to each other.
God reveals Himself to us in the Holy Scriptures, and from His Word we can learn about His nature, His character, and His plan for humankind. Yet this spiritual journey takes something more than just reading the words in the Bible and applying our own interpretations—it takes authentic faith and a good deal of help from the Holy Spirit. God’s Unreasonable Reasoning is a captivating spiritual guidebook that can help you understand God’s reasoning in life’s many transitions, and it can change the way you interpret the experiences that you don’t understand in your daily life. Author and ordained bishop Dr. Preston Williams II offers insight into why human reasoning can’t assume that God sees things as we see them, explaining how human reasoning can be an enemy of faith since it is driven by our human nature and the physical experiences of life. With this understanding, you can experience the self-discovery and the wisdom that can prepare you to confront the rapid and complex challenges and transformations in today’s world. Sharing his own remarkable personal stories of trials, transitions, and ultimate triumphs, Dr. Williams invites you to be inspired to follow your own dreams by seeing the world through God’s eyes and allowing your path to be illuminated by biblical principles, metaphors, and insights that will stir your soul and touch the core of every heart earnestly seeking its own destiny on the journey of life.
