A Devotional for 28 Days of Reflection and Change

Not every pilgrimage requires travel. Some pilgrimages, like this one, can be embarked on without going very far from home. Whether a pilgrimage involves walking the Camino, preparing for Advent, or consciously marking off a period of time to make some changes in your life, what every pilgrim knows is that change does not come easily and rarely happens all at once.

We don’t change by suddenly deciding to change. We change in small ways when we daily open ourselves to the possibility that we too could be made anew. With this in mind, we pay attention. We keep our eyes and ears open for direction and our hearts open to the possibility of wonder and miracle. And when things go wrong, as they always do, we rejoice and give thanks anyway. These are what every pilgrim practices and what this book will, step by step, guide you through.

Walking into the Light is a 28-day pilgrimage that takes us through dark times with the promise of light ahead. Each day on this journey, we’ll be on the lookout for ways to better live our lives in ways which might invite the Divine to shine through. We’ll also be listening for calling, staying open to wonder, and experimenting with practices for traveling light and keeping it holy.

Through photos, stories, practices, and suggested readings, you’ll be guided along in a way that sets you free to explore and find your own Way through.  Some days it will all come together. Other days it won’t. We expect this. Though we’re headed towards mountaintops, we’re ready for the valleys. Though we long to walk in the light right now, we’re ready for the dark nights we’ll surely encounter.

That’s the pilgrim life. Every day a new beginning. Blessings always and already on the way.

If You Could Change Your Life by Reversing Your Biggest Regrets, Sorrows and Mistakes...Would You?

#1 New York Times bestselling author and renowned radio and television host Glenn Beck delivers an instant holiday classic about boyhood memories, wrenching life lessons, and the true meaning of the gifts we give to one another in love.

We weren't wealthy, we weren't poor -- we just were. We never wanted for anything, except maybe more time together....

When Eddie was twelve years old, all he wanted for Christmas was a bike. Although his life had gotten harder -- and money tighter -- since his father died and the family bakery closed...Eddie dreamed that somehow his mother would find a way to have his dream bike gleaming beside their modest Christmas tree that magical morning.

What he got from her instead was a sweater. "A stupid, handmade, ugly sweater" that young Eddie left in a crumpled ball in the corner of his room.

Scarred deeply by the realization that kids don't always get what they want, and too young to understand that he already owned life's most valuable treasures, that Christmas morning was the beginning of Eddie's dark and painful journey on the road to manhood. It will take wrestling with himself, his faith, and his family -- and the guidance of a mysterious neighbor named Russell -- to help Eddie find his path through the storm clouds of life and finally see the real significance of that simple gift his mother had crafted by hand with love in her heart.

Based on a deeply personal true story, The Christmas Sweater is a warm and poignant tale of family, faith and forgiveness that offers us a glimpse of our own lives -- while also making us question if we really know what's most important in them.
