Big, colourful virtues like courage and decisiveness in crisis easily get our attention. But sometimes it's those everyday values that shape us much more profoundly. Lost in our noisy, flashy, gaudy world are the quiet virtues that work behind the scenes--molding our character, guiding our actions, enriching our lives. Greg Spencer unfolds the beauty and nature of each, showing us how to take notice of discernment, innocence, generosity, authenticity and more. In this book you'll discover how far from being dull, these all play a major, though often hidden, role in who we become and what we do.You'll also find practical exercises and companion spiritual disciplines to strengthen these virtues. A guide for personal reflection or group discussion offers further guidance to awakening the quieter virtues in you.
