—Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, EWTN host, speaker, and author of Rooted in Love: Our Calling as Catholic Women

I count myself among the many who have long needed spiritual direction, but have been unsure regarding who to receive it from or how to get started. Dan Burke’s wonderful new book is filled with practical wisdom and sound Church teaching on how to navigate and grow our interior lives. I will be referring to and recommending this gem for the rest of my life. Well done!

—Randy Hain, senior editor, Integrated Catholic Life eMagazine

Along with the helpful and concise information on creating, nurturing and sustaining effective spiritual direction relationships, the books dives even more deeply into how to live a true life of virtue. Dan Burke is a trusted guide to help you look at the roots sins that cause your separation from Christ and how to move beyond those with a Rule of Life guided by virtue that will help any spiritual seeker achieve lasting progress in his or her interior life.
