9780829444131: Taste and See: Experiencing the Goodness of God with Our Five Senses

Most Catholics are quite comfortable with the idea of encountering God with hearts and minds. Using the heart or brain to "sense" God's presence doesn't feel like a stretch. But the notion of finding God with our five senses--sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste--could seem strange indeed. In fact, it might even seem worldly or downright wrong.
In Taste and See, Ginny Kubitz Moyer beautifully counters this common misunderstanding. Using personal stories, anecdotes, and Scripture, she demonstrates how the five senses are a powerful, biblically based means for us to encounter God, not only as we practice our faith but also as we participate in the "messy splendor" of daily life.

Each sense is allotted five chapters, each of which highlights a different experience of that sense. Every chapter concludes with Ignatian Examen-inspired prayer steps that encourage us to recognize and reflect upon God's presence and goodness in the physical world.
From roses to the rosary, from candle smoke to Communion wine, Taste and See helps readers truly find God in all things--from the mundane to the sublime.

Winner of a 2017 Catholic Press Book Award

About the Author:

Ginny Kubitz Moyer is an award-winning writer with a focus on spirituality. She is the author of Random MOMents of Grace and Mary and Me. Ginny lives with her husband and two boys in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she trips over toys, teaches high school English, and does her best to approach it all with mindfulness and humor.

Review:

Taste and See truly extends beyond the experience of reading a book and into the realm of taking a spiritual retreat. Through personal anecdotes, vivid yet accessible scriptural and theological references, and a realistically achievable format, talented author Ginny Kubitz Moyer journeys alongside her reader as a spiritual guide but also a friend. Read this book once to see, hear, smell, feel and taste the world around you through new eyes. Then read it again in the company of others to share the goodness! I would love to attend a weekend retreat based around this book and will now look forward to praying my Examen with it daily! 
 - Lisa M. Hendey, Founder of CatholicMom.com and author of The Grace of Yes
