From the Back Cover
Father Jonathan Morris, Fox News religion analyst, bestselling author, and parish priest, has seen firsthand how easily our day-to-day lives are consumed with anxiety and stress as we focus on our failures and troubles, while peace feels unattainable. When he re-discovered the Serenity Prayer, he realized that this little prayer can be, in fact, a powerful roadmap for our spiritual journey toward God. As he began to share this prayer with others, he saw that living these simple lines became a source of profound peace and happiness:
Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
For years a mainstay of recovery programs, this prayer has proven it can change lives. What's more, through it we all can find comfort and support, including an active collaboration with God's grace as he works alongside us to grant the serenity we seek. Unpacking the prayer phrase by phrase, Father Jonathan shows how we can gain a deeper spiritual understanding by practicing its message. Through powerful personal stories, illuminating historical anecdotes, and biblical passages that show us God's plan for our lives, The Way of Serenity will help us grow closer to God and find serenity, regardless of our circumstances.
Join Father Jonathan and the many others who have made this prayer an integral part of their lives, and find lasting peace and happiness today.

This book should not be limited to just the people of faith, as its contents touch on so much more than that. Compassion. Inner strength. Wisdom. All things that anyone could use more of. With the pressures of modernity at every side, looking back into ourselves to find our inner strengths and vulnerabilities, our character, and even our faith is a compelling reason to read this book. This insightful book may just strike a chord in you, as it did me.
If you are suffering from worry, anxiety or depression this book is a must. If you're looking for a book that will comfort, reassure and reveal God's love and peace then please buy this book.
Importantly, a discussion of how this prayer applies to problems we face each day is so valuable. Father Morris knows that our lives are messy and hits the nail on the head over and over.
It has helped me.
