St. Martin's Press

When one of the century's greatest floods devastated her town, Robin Silverman went looking for the personal peace she new she and tens of thousands of others would need to restore their shattered lives. In her search, she discovered the Ten Gifts: powerful inner resources that have been within us since birth-resources that can transform crisis, create opportunity, and deliver lasting fulfillment. The gifts have familiar names: faith, love, dreams, courage, unity, joy, trust, character, thanks, and intention. Using stories of real people, Silverman beautifully illustrates new and exciting ways your gifts can be defined and used to provide the security you want when you need it the most. In addition, she offers practical exercises so you can put the gifts to work for yourself. For anyone wanting more satisfaction from life, The Ten Gifts lights the path to personal peace.
