True happiness and success can't just be wished for. The real secret to fulfillment lies in using the Lord's Prayer as part of an ongoing spiritual practice that leads to real and lasting change in the soul - change that will manifest itself in earthly, tangible ways.
Each chapter in The Source of Miracles is a guide to one of seven steps in that process, corresponding to a primary teaching of the prayer: faith, surrender, service, abundance, forgiveness, obstacles, and love. Each chapter also includes meditations, affirmations, and other activities designed to help readers work through life's challenges.
In her best-selling fiction, Kathleen McGowan has popularized the world of Christian esoterica, a unique place where New Age and Christianity meet, making ancient teachings new and powerful. The Source of Miracles harnesses the wisdom of those traditions at a time of great material and spiritual uncertainty, when the need for signposts on the road to success has never been more acute.

The author presents her reflection on the Lord's Prayer in the context of her personal spiritual journey, as well as drawing on insight from the practice of Labyrinth prayer and a wide variety of works on Christian spirituality. While drawing on traditional sources, her personal insight and struggle adds depth to the work. While I've grown fond of her fiction, this book had me from the beginning. It also provides insight into the spirituality that she injects into her fictional works.
While working the exercises would be easier from a hard copy of the book, I found it very beneficial to listen (several times) while driving or working around the house, even as I drift off to sleep. Narration by the author was authentic and enjoyable; the content was very thought provoking. I have enjoyed all her books, but this one is stellar for spiritual growth.
I have found major healing through yoga and energy based acupuncture that heals the affects of sin passed down through the mother (ancient paths). I have also studied theophostic and the miracle of listening, but I always knew there had to be a way that God provided for us to experience the gifts of the spirit and find answers to our purpose in God's kingdom. I believe this book shows how The Lord's Prayer can unify christians - and humanity - to find emotional, physical, and spiritual healing, as well as dialogue with those who believe differently by challenging them to seek their answers and expect a real/tangible response from our Creator!
