Audiences of every religious tradition respond to Mary Manin Morrissey's powerful message that "we already have what it takes" to create what we most desire in the world: a fulfilling partnership, a better marriage, closeness with children, parents, and friends. Learning how to ask for and listen to divine guidance gives us access to the love that is always there for us.Through dozens of compelling, vividly told stories, Mary shows how ordinary, struggling relationships are transformed when we learn to follow seven basic spiritual principles. A new wife breaks through the hostility of her reluctant stepson. A young woman who has been rejected too many times learns to love again. A teenage boy turns away from anger to find his life's goal. An aging mother and her daughter heal a lifetime of hurt.Each chapter ends with simple but profound practices that will enable readers to discover the creative partnership that God offers every one of us, and to put the teachings into action in their day-to-day lives.
