Amy Jo Garner's books
A Year of Wisdom Reflections: contemplating the art of being wise
A Year of Wisdom Reflections draws from the Christian Bible’s Wisdom tradition as a way to reflect on what it means to be wise and how to incorporate wisdom into our daily lives. The book is designed as a weekly devotional or journal that can be used by everyone whether they are Christian, spiritual but not religious, or even atheist. By following the prompts, you will have a chance to: think deeply about what wisdom means to you, find ways to make wise choices, understand how and when to speak or not speak, and develop a better understanding of yourself and others.
The book is set up with the Bible quotation and the author's thoughts on the left and space for you to write, doodle, or draw your own thoughts on the right.
