In Rhythms of Growth, Linda Douty uses the seasons of the year to illustrate natural trends in our spiritual lives. For winter, she writes about themes of rootedness, fallow times, reflection; for spring—awakening, planting, new growth, storms; for summer—bearing fruit, abundance, blossoming, weeding, and pests; for fall—letting go, sifting, harvesting. Douty's conversational style and ability to bring together the everyday and the holy make this book appealing for anyone who wants a devotional book that is applicable to everyday life.
Linda Douty is the author of three books; *Praying in the Messiness of Life: 7 Ways to Renew Your Relationship with God,** *How Can I Let Go If I Don't Know I'm Holding On??Setting Our Souls Free,** and *How Can I See the Light When It's So Dark??Journey to a Thankful Heart.** A book reviewer, retreat leader, and spiritual director, Linda also leads workshops on topics ranging from aging and personal growth to spiritual formation. She lives in Memphis, Tennessee.
