Summary
Big, colorful 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. These qualities play a major, though often hidden, role in who we become and what we do. In each chapter you'll find practical exercises and companion spiritual disciplines to strengthen these virtues. Questions for personal reflection or group discussion offer further guidance to awakening the quieter virtues in you
