Books Holly Whitcomb Has Written

The Practice of Finding: How Gratitude Leads the Way to Enough

Purchase Book

In this lovely book conveniently used for individual reflection or group study, Holly W. Whitcomb presents the spiritual practice of finding as the antidote to chronic seeking and as the doorway to a grateful awareness of having received enough. She reflects on wisdom distilled by the "finders" -poets, playwrights, psychologists, and theologians-and derived from her own experience. (The foreword to this book is written by Wayne Muller.)

"Holly Whitcomb's book has enticed me to recognize and savor the plenitude in my life. Her wise reflections in The Practice of Finding provide soothing balm for both mind and heart. This is a great resource for every reader who has known suffering and yearns for a restoration of hope."

Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting

Purchase Book

This popular book on waiting can be effectively used all year, but has also been studied at Lent and Advent by groups all over the country.

"So much contemporary spiritual writing is about questing and conquering. It's refreshing to have a book that explores the multiple dimensions of the most vital and mysterious spiritual discipline, that of waiting. Holly Whitcomb's Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting is her finest book yet for an individual, a spiritual leader, or a spiritual community."
