Powerful, but not a quick fix!

I have found this book to be a difficult, but enjoyable read. It's enjoyable because the book was written in the right spirit and with the best of intentions. The book is difficult because, if the reader is sincere, you will be challenged to examine your own heart, beliefs and actions. If you are like me, you will desire to change some things about you.

I wish that I could say that I've gone through the book and my life was instantly filled with miracles beyond count. This book isn't about instant prosperity. This process requires discipline. Choose this book if you are willing to be open and work toward change. I fully believe that if you earnestly work through the exercises and follow the steps as presented by the author, you will open yourself up to more miracles. The author's life is certainly a testament to that.

The author has provided fresh insights. This book has allowed me to see the deeper meaning behind the Lord's Prayer and I'm grateful for the understanding. I recommend this book to all who want to deepen their spiritual practice through life application.

review by . August 20, 2010
Author Kathleen McGowan's text "The Source of Miracles: 7 Steps to Transforming Your Life Through The Lord's Prayer" is an excellent primer on positive self-transformation using the Lord's Prayer. McGowan tells her readers that "true happiness can't just be wished for. The real secret to fulfillment lies in using the Lord's Prayer as part of an ongoing spiritual practice that leads to real and lasting change in the soul--change that will manifest itself in earthly, tangible ways." McGowan teaches …

By Kelly Jad'on  Basil & Spice    The Source of Miracles by Kathleen McGowan is a transformational book for this time in history.

McGowan, a student of Biblical manuscripts, relates her own life experiences and the miracles she's seen in the book. The Source of Miracles is a book of hope, not just for those who have given up …

About this book

Wiki

Bestselling author McGowan (The Expected One) calls the Lord's Prayer the most powerful tool for changing your life—and changing the world—that you will likely ever encounter. McGowan offers a unique perspective by pairing the prayer with the rose with six petals, the middle point of the labyrinth in the floor of Chartres Cathedral. The six petals and the middle coincide with the teaching points of the Lord's Prayer, which McGowan exegetes with depth and personal insight, based in part on the miracle of her son, who was expected to die as an infant but survived. Each section—faith, surrender, service, abundance, forgiveness, overcoming, love—taps into McGowan's premise that the Lord's Prayer is the source of faith, love and forgiveness and in combination, those things are the source of very real miracles. She draws heavily on the Bible as well as such sources as the gospels of Philip and Mary Magdalene; some may quarrel with her definition of evil as the failing of your own nature. Many readers, however, will discover new depths and dimensions in the age-old Lord's Prayer.(Nov.)
