About the Author

In addition to serving as an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, Martie McMane is a sought after public speaker and master teacher. She has served as pastor for churches in Ohio, Connecticut, and Colorado, and as the Minister for Spiritual and Membership Growth on the national staff of the United Church of Christ. The story of Martie’s transformative work as a pastor in the Ohio church was published in the book Good News for Growing Churches (Pilgrim Press). During her tenure on the national staff, she and her husband taught over ten thousand pastors and parishioners in a program they designed to increase vitality in worship and spiritual life in churches throughout the country. Martie is the author of Worship Comes Alive: A Resource Book for Music and the Arts and R.E.L.A.T.E., a Bible study process based on the principles of the Twelve Steps. She has published numerous articles on worship and spirituality and has also composed hymns, songs, and psalm responses, some of which are included in The New Century Hymnal. In addition to her Master of Divinity degree, Martie holds a Master of Arts in Teaching and has taught oral interpretation of literature, drama, and public speaking in both high school and college. She has been a featured storyteller at concerts and conferences throughout the country. As a certified teacher of the Enneagram, Martie has led workshops and retreats for spiritual directors and counselors and has taught classes nationally and internationally for people using the Enneagram for personal and spiritual growth. She is also certified in the Helen Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music for Groups and is skilled in using this methodology for in-depth spiritual work.

Format: Paperback
"The first sign of a great book is my sudden urge to pull out a yellow highlighter and a pen to begin underlining and writing comments in the margins. Living Grace is one of those books. It is more than the knowledge that Martie McMane is offering; it is pure wisdom, the wisdom of an authentically lived spiritual experience that shines through the pages. Each chapter drew me in more deeply. I wanted to read more, ponder more, journal more, savoring each morsel of insight. Of particular help to me were the journaling reflections at the end of each chapter encouraging me to take Martie McMane's words and try them on in my own spiritual journey. If you want to take one significant step of growth on your spiritual path, read and embrace Living Grace."

"Living Grace holds all of the gentleness, wisdom and guidance that one would seek in a spiritual director. Martie McMane's exploration of the Revolutionary Agreements leads the reader to a broader understanding of the very intimate search for peace and understanding in a world of distractions. Her Living Grace concepts facilitate the opening up of the creative process as it relates to spiritual growth, and lights the path to fulfillment on the journey."

Format: Paperback
Martie McMane's book is a feast of riches! Guiding us through a journey of spiritual covenants, she follows each of her essays with a series of creative `Reflections'--evocative guides for centering prayer, for journal writing, for doing processes of self-examination, and for new ways to read Scripture. To both essays and reflections, she brings insight and depth without sacrificing directness or her own warm humanity. She brings a quality of self-revelation and vulnerability that can encourage the same in the reader. She brings memorable illustrations from the experiences of the high and the lowly, and shares her own life with humor and touching candor. The book's title is utterly descriptive of its contents.

"Living Grace is a beautiful integration of scripture, reflection, and soulful exercises. Martie writes from her personal experiences sharing her conviction that the grace of God is real and true and available to all of us. Through stories and the wisdom of many spiritual teachers, she gently leads the reader into reflections that offer the possibility of transformation. Living Grace is ideal for individual seekers or for small group study."
