As a young missionary, Joel Stepanek came upon a prayer that radically changed his life: The Litany of Humility. He discovered wisdom in its words. No, humility does not require shunning success or praise; nor does it demand a "crummy" lifestyle. In Chasing Humility, Stepanek shares the pattern for spiritual growth that became the anchor for the way he lives. Explore eight essential aspects of humility: authenticity, confidence, gratitude, love, praise, empowerment, mentoring, and breaking barriers. His writing is engaging and includes stories, a few humorous, as well as theological reflections. Each chapter includes a practical exercise for spiritual growth. Create an authenticity diagram in one, start a gratitude journal in another. Delvelop habits of speech that praise others for their success. Every chapter has something that will encourage and edify.
