Daily Inspiration

Review: This is great for daily meditation

Made well

Review: Great quality. lot's of information

Beautiful Book!!

Review: This book was very well packaged and protected during shipping. The look and feel of the leather is soft but yet it is very solid. The binding is well made. I had my name engraved on the front cover and love how it turned out. The pages are crisp, colorful, and easy to read. The inspiration that you gain from these Saints is truly powerful, moving, and teaches you how to master great virtues that most people have a tendency to either take for granted or overlook in their busy daily lives.

Cultivating Virtue

Review: An excellent book with great insight and lessons. However, this is not an easy ready. I purchased with the intention to read with my family, I found myself reading alone. A little disappointed it was difficult to share with my family (kids 14, 12, 10) but am enjoying it reading for myself.

A Great Read

Review: I read this book daily and find it very insightful. I’m glad I purchased it. Thank you Trinity Road.

Cultivating Virtue

Review: I love how the book focuses on one virtue a month. Each day of that month has inspirational, thought provoking reading to help strengthen your resolve.

Walking with the Saints in Virtue

Review: Had been studying the 7 Deadly Sins and my spiritual director suggested I look at the corresponding virtues to put things in a more positive light. Cultivating Virtue was the perfect answer in very digestible portions!

This books helps me raise the bar.

Review: By observing the lives and teachings of the saints in daily lessons, I am challenged each day to go forward in my walk with the Lord, which is the hallmark of a disciple of Christ. Accepting the status quo with my spiritual or interior life is in effect backsliding. I value this book highly for it's very real positive effect of challenging me to seek the Face of the Lord in everything I do and to thank Him for every good and perfect gift.

Cultivating Virtue

Review: This book is exactly what I needed to work on obtaining virtue! It uses a different virtue each month and tells you how different saints worked to obtain that virtue. Since you have a month for each virtue, it isn't overwhelming and instead really encourages growth. The shipping was slow, and I did not receive an answer when I contacted the company to find out why. But I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to grow in their spiritual life by following the saints' proven methods.

Cultivating Virtue

Review: This book combines scripture with the wisdom of the saints, and is very applicable to everyday life. Very easy to read.

Cultivating Virtue / Self-Mastery with the Saints

Review: This book contains daily reflections on how to cultivate virtues through the wisdom of saints. The cover is attractive and feels like leather. The quote that opens the books is from St. John of the Cross: "The object of all virtues is to bring us into union with God, in which alone is laid up all the happiness that can be enjoyed in this world. Now, in what does this union properly consist? In nothing save a perfect conformity and resemblance between our will and the will of God."
