Kathleen McGowan's writing style is sincere and easy to follow. This is a wonderful little book that contains a great message. Kathleen has researched this subject extensively, I especially appreciate the answer to my questions about the secret of abundance. Her explanation is thoughtful and makes sense.

The Source of Miracles -by Kathleen McGowan.... takes the reader thru an amazing journey of self discovery in which your outlook on life is opened and thus enhanced to live life to its fullest with a rightous mindset. Being ever mindful of how an individual lives and makes decisions ultimately do impact your fellow neighbor if done selfishly for outright personal gain. Explore, question and see all the goodness that this world has to offer. Stop limiting oneself because of doubt and lack of self confidence-- push yourself to live a full life so that when you leave this planet you know that in the end you leave satified because YOU LIVED! Enjoy all the little things which ultimately make up the big things.

1.0 out of 5 stars New Age, Not Christian, January 12, 2010 Honestly, I did not read past page 63. I did not read through all the steps she outlines: The Petals of the ancient Secret of the Rose. There was too much New Age philosophy, Gnosticism and Esotericism. The three cannot be blended together effectively and remain Christian. It's not that these subjects make me uncomfortable to explore. It's just that I know The Truth already and I do not need to add to that. Adding in these other conflicting philosophies and theories of thought to biblical Truth creates confusion, not enlightenment. Yes, there is power in prayer. Yes, our words and God's words (the Word) have power. Yes, The Lord's Prayer is a powerful, meaningful and effective prayer. But do I think The Lord's Prayer is literally magic (pg. 3)? No. Do I think that praying it over and over again, even with sincerity and thoughtfulness will help me manifest miracles and abundant life for myself (pg 3)? No. Only God does that. Do I think I made a promise to God or even existed as a spiritual being before I was born (pgs 47 and 51)? I find no Biblical substantiation for that. The author herself does not even give citation for either of these claims. Will I put my faith in man, not just in God? The bible cautions against that in 1 Corintians 2:5 "That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God." Do I think this book is a worthwhile read? I'm afraid not.

I bought this book with good intentions to sit down and enjoy, and possibly learn some new things, then I came across the negative information online- about the author herself. There are so many accusations made by others ranging from lies, deceits to outright fraud ( she is not really an ordained minister as she claims and her books never sold a million copies) that I can no longer trust this author or anything she says. I have come away with the impression that she needs to be reading and understanding more about spirituality and honesty before she writes any more on these topics. How can anyone believe what she has to say in print if she cannot practice what she preaches in real life? Very disappointed with her and cannot in clear conscience recommend this book to anyone.

The Source of Miracles, by Kathleen McGowan, is what inspirational reading should be! This book is not only informative and easy to read, but it is also heartfelt and sincere. Ms. McGowan has a way of being open to many faith traditions but, at the same time, does not "water down" her thoughts and opinions. She is well versed in facts but also reaches into your heart with her abundant sincerity and enthusiasm. This book is easy to use and unintimidating. It makes you want to make the world a better place but can also help you be a happier person. That is a lot to come out of a little book! Thank you, Ms. McGowan!

I love this book! If you want to be more connected to spirit/God/yourself; if you want to learn gratitude, prayer, how to be more peaceful, how to manifest, this book is helpful. I really enjoyed it, and already consider myself adept at prayer and being spiritual.
