Spiritual Resources for the Month of January
Imagination doesn’t just help us make our way through life, it makes
our life come to life, illuminating the magic in the everyday.

Imagination not only pulls us into an improved future, it illuminates our present and helps us to perceive it as precious, even miraculous.
