In this practical and easy read, Stone guides the reader through ancient Christian practices that align the mind with the incarnation of the human heart through the profound yet simple practice of holy noticing. The spiritual discipline of mindfully noticing the presence of God strengthens the capacity for emotional regulation, conscious decision-making, insight, and empathy, bringing more balance, harmony, and well-being into daily life. Kudos to Stone for his BREATHe model, an important Rule of Life for those that desire a deep and transformative relationship with Christ.

This book takes the recently popular concept of mindfulness and translates it for the thoughtful Christian. Mindfulness is an ancient Christian spiritual discipline, not just a pagan one. This book gives the Christian history of mindfulness, which the author calls "holy noticing" and also the current scientific research. Mindfulness practices (holy noticing) can rewire our brains in a positive direction and help Christians become more like Christ. I enjoyed both the science, history and Biblical insights in this book. My concern is that the practice the author suggests is a bit too complicated There are seven components he suggests that readers focus on. As I read each chapter, I could see how each component is useful, but trying to implement all of them would be overwhelming to the average person. This book would be most useful for pastors, spiritual advisors, and Christian counselors as they work with individuals. I received a complementary advanced copy of this book from the publisher on NetGally.

I had no idea that there are so many books on mindfulness. Holy Noticing is the first one that I have read. I found it encouraging, easy to read, instructional and very practical. Stone clearly communicates concepts to increase focused attention and be present in the moment. I appreciated the step by step examples of slowing down using brief prayers and verses from Scripture. There is also bonus content available online. Learning to be mindful takes practice, but as a beginner, I have already begun to notice small changes. I easily recommend this book to anyone who would like to become more purposeful in making choices in daily life. I received a complimentary copy of this book by the publisher. All opinions are mine.
