Let the Holy Family be your light through Advent as you receive the healing power of Christ.
In this beautiful guided journal for prayer and meditation, Sr. Miriam James Heidland, SOLT—author of the bestselling book Restore—will walk with you as you explore familial wounds with the help of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.
Behold features stunning original art by Josiah Henley of Heart of IESVS. Free weekly companion videos, a downloadable discussion guide, and other resources make this book perfect for parish-wide, individual, and book club use leading up to Christmas.
Each week of Behold will focus on a different theme that you can connect to your life in a practical way:
- Week one: Motherhood—Receive Mary as your mother and let her tender love soften your heart toward your earthly mother;
- Week two: Fatherhood—Adopt Joseph as your father and embrace his loving strength as you seek healing in your relationship with your own father;
- Week three: Childhood—Become childlike with Jesus and remember the core of who you are as you release your inner joy and playfulness; and
- Week four: Stable—Restore peace and unity in your family and regain hope.
Each day you will journey deeper into the meaning of Advent with a meditation, reflection questions, a prayer, and journaling space.
