Share Article

The author, a Baptist pastor, has designed a journal that helps people apply spiritual principles to their own lives. This new book, released by Dog Ear Publishing, features photos, inspirational messages and thought-provoking questions to help readers search for deeper meaning in everyday situations and progress in their spiritual comprehension.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Journey Within: Moving to the Center of Your Growth” by the Rev. Larry Edmunds with Penny Schricker.

(The book) allows people to chronicle their unique journey in faith and spiritual living, whether individually or in a group setting.

It is not enough to grasp God’s goodness for oneself; instead, people must exercise that realization in their daily lives, suggests the Rev. Larry Edmunds in his new book. The Baptist pastor designed this journal to help individuals apply spiritual principles to their own lives in a concrete way. The book also allows people to chronicle their unique journey in faith and spiritual living, whether individually or in a group setting. Both methods provide a practical way to express spiritual reflection and personal action.

The introduction for “Journey Within” invites readers to use the journal as a tool for the journey, a map of areas to explore, an outline for a personal travel log, a source to focus on the real path of their lives, and a place “to witness the jewels God has placed within you and in your life,” Edmunds writes. The book offers a chance for prayerful meditation inspired by stunning photos and inspirational words, including scripture, followed by questions and space for journaling. For instance, a page reminding readers that Jesus is the bread of life leads to questions on how much time and energy someone spends shopping, cooking and feeding their physical body vs. how much time that person spends feeding his spirit. It concludes with this passage from John 6:35: “Jesus Said to them, ‘I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”

Readers searching for something more out of life can explore the deeper meaning of seemingly everyday things in life that can open them to deeper levels of spiritual comprehension. The journal, with its personal approach, “creates a therapeutic new self-image leading to a more positive and fulfilling life,” Edmunds writes.

Author Larry Edmunds, pastor at Gethsemani Missionary Baptist Church in Las Vegas, is CEO of L&M Global Outreach Ministry Consultants. The Christian-based agency encourages an evangelistic approach that supports personal spiritual growth. Edmunds’ wife is Maxine Heard Edmunds. Penny Schricker is the book’s collaborator.
