I am burdened by the increasing numbers of believers who know the Lord very superficially. They do not love Him. They find the time spent in His presence uninteresting. Often they do not know what to say to Him. We live in a generation that does not provide for quiet. Everything is moving fast. There is so much activity going on. The leaders of the day, be they in worldly circles or in the Church, are activists. Those who withdraw to wait on God are few. We believe that when believers in an increasing number, begin to withdraw and spend time alone in God's presence, something will happen to them. They will know God and then they will seek Him more and more. They will serve Him from His presence and things will be different. They will make spiritual progress. We send out this small book with prayer that the Lord will use it to help some make spiritual progress by withdrawing to seek God, know Him and obey Him. If you have been blessed through reading this book, please help put a copy in the hands of another believer and pray that he, too, will be blessed.

Spiritual growth is a mystery and is more evident in some than in others. The more the Holy Spirit shines upon the mind and puts forth His lifegiving influences in the heart, so much the more sin is seen, felt and loathed as the greatest of all evils. And this is an evidence of spiritual growth, namely, to hate sin as sin and to abhor it on account of its contrariety to the nature of God

Spiritual Growth and Care in the Fourth Age of Life explores the spiritual dimension of ageing and investigates the role of pastoral and spiritual care in helping the frail elderly cope with end-of-life issues. Focusing on the experience of nursing home residents and anecdotes gathered in interviews, MacKinlay sensitively presents the struggles facing older people in need of care, such as loss of independence and privacy. Her findings show that despite ill health, loneliness and depression, older people near the end of their lives find meaning and support in (re)discovering their spirituality, and that this is not just the experience of those in care facilities, but of older people more generally. The book includes a useful chapter on spiritual assessment, providing carers with information on how to recognise the need for care. This book will be of interest to nurses, care workers, pastoral support professionals and anyone else working with older people.
In A Trilogy That Explains Spiritual Growth, Jacqueline McNeil Watts has written and published under one cover, three books that reveal information that used to be taught in mystery schools to an elite audience. These Ageless Wisdom teachings are truths that have been hidden and/or misunderstood by Earth’s humanity for many, many years. Due to our current level of evolution, we are now ready to receive and understand this information. We are also ready to learn how we can participate consciously in our growth from third-dimensional human beings to fifth-dimensional spirit beings, and how we are co-creating a new Earth along with more evolved beings and with the Supreme Creator of all that exists. This trilogy will be a rewarding and delightful eye-opener to those who wish to understand spiritual truths on a deeper level than that which is presented by most religions.
