Author: Anne F. Grizzle
Anne F. Grizzle
"Altars have always been a common means of remembering the works of God. Fleshy, down to earth characters that we are, we need tangible aids that help us to see and thank God amidst our [busy] days. A home altar makes a statement about the centrality of God in our homes and also serves as a practical tool for cultivating faith in our daily lives."- Anne Grizzle Since ancient times, altars have helped remind us of those encounters with God that are often overlooked or forgotten. In this enlightening book, Grizzle shows us how a personal altar provides an opportunity to refocus our busy, worry-filled lives so that we may more fully experience the life that God has for us. With warmth and practical wisdom, Grizzle passes along both the desire and the knowledge we need to deepen our worship experience through this life-enriching tradition "Anne Grizzle is a wise and realistic counselor" -Harold S. Kushner
"Any room can include a small space where we might place changing reminders of God's presence in our lives, marking our gratefulness and thanksgiving for his care over us. This space can become a regular prayer space. Grizzle offers good suggestions and ideas for anyone who would like to begin the New Year with this kind of active worship and spiritual growth."
