“Reading this book is dangerous as it gently challenges you spiritually. It is full of attainable, practical applications that can be incorporated into daily life. If you want to develop spiritual muscles this is a great guide.” Carolyn Draper, primary school teacher.
“Jenny Campbell is such a good connector. She connects deep theology to every day life, the past to the present, the mysterious to the meaningful, the challenges to the opportunities, our doing to our being and, most importantly, the work of the Spirit of God to ordinary people like you and me. Jenny has unlocked some deep truths and shown us how to exercise them in our every day lives. This book will help you to keep in step with the Spirit as you give time and space to draw near to God and seek his presence to enrich you and form you into his likeness.” Revd Canon Tim Montgomery, Missional Leadership Development Officer, Diocese of Liverpool
“This little book of wisdom is for anyone; for the seeker of spiritual direction in Christ it is invaluable.” Andy Packer – Retired headteacher and seeker of answers.
“Jennifer Campbell packs a lot into a small book. As an octogenarian wishing to have read the book earlier, it is still a relief to understand now, that our Lord intended the Beatitudes to be a goal to reach for rather than, as Campbell illustrates with refreshing humour and empathising self-deprecation, being perfect now. The comparison between the struggle of the Ancient Greek athlete and that of the Christian spiritual athlete gives form and structure to spiritual gymnastics. It is never too late to have a go.” Suzy Miles, octogenarian and artist.
“An insightful, easy to understand, practical book to strengthen your spiritual muscles at any stage of your faith. It’s perfect for anybody who wants a concise, practical guide to take their discipleship to the next level!” Matt Human, A-Level student
