    Worth it!

    This book/CD is worth it's price simply to have Roma Downey saying the rosary with me! Its like having my sainted Irish grandmother back with me saying my prayers! This has been extraordinarily useful during difficult times.

    Practical Praying is Heaven Sent

    I have always been intrigued by John Edward's ability to connect to the other side. After reading this little book, I understood more about his ability and could see how I have had similar experiences. The rosary is a sacred tool and has a powerful effect when used to pray. John Edward shows us how to pray the rosary, how to expand upon it, and how he uses it to prepare for his connections to the other side. Our prayers are often so confusing, so John puts them into perspective. The voice of Roma Downey on the meditation CD is beautiful and soothing. My three-year old daughter, listens to this CD at her nap time and has learned the complete Rosary. Not growing up catholic, I didn't ever expect to know this myself, but it is part of learning universal prayer and acknowledging the effectivenss of all religions, all prayer, and one God. Amen to Practical Praying.

    Warm. Personal, and Uplifting

    John Edward admits he was uneasy about writing a book on the Rosary. He needn't have been. I'm sure his readers and fans appreciate his openness about what really matters to him and his thoughts on why prayer should matter to us all. This is a short book but quite personal and contains numerous stories of a truly mystical nature. This may end up being his most popular book yet. Thanks, John.

    Prayer that packs a Punch!!!

    As a rosary praying Catholic, rosary maker and huge fan of John Edward, I loved this book. He gives such a fresh perspective on how to use the rosary to focus your thoughts and energy and on how to pray with intention. He helps the reader understand how very powerful this method of prayer can be and that it can be a valuable tool for people of all faiths, not just Catholics. His sincerity, humor and genuine desire to benefit others are evident as he reveals his own journey. I have found that this method of prayer has enhanced my life, as the title of the book indicates. Also, comes with a beautiful Meditation CD. I highly recommend this book for any of my fellow sojourners on the spiritual path.
