Some questions she asks are: How can you “open the doors to Christ” in your life? Describe how you have seen hope and joy expressed in young children. What can you learn form them? A suggested spiritual activity, from the chapter on faith is to spend time in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on a regular basis and from Fortitude, consider reading one of the gospels all the way through, paying special attention to how Jesus lived out eh virtue of fortitude.
I enjoyed the study and think it would be useful to women in many different stages of their faith life. All of us need a reminder now and again that Christian virtue should be the foundation of our life in Christ and that the world’s definition of beauty is not what makes an attractive woman. I especially enjoyed Gina’s story as to how she was convinced to spend time cultivating her inner beauty.
This book is definitely on my short list of possibilities for fall with the women. This review was written as part of the Catholic book Reviewer program from The Catholic Company. Visit The Catholic Company to find more information on Choosing Beauty.
