“Yes.”  We say it when a friend asks us for a favor.  We say it as we do our family’s laundry.  We say it as we cook a meal for a new mom.  We say it when we agree to marry someone, and we say it when we sacrifice something precious for the good of another.

The Theology of the Body is rooted in the “Yes” of the Crucifix.  Jesus’ complete gift of Himself shows us how to truly love–how to be truly generous with the very gift of ourselves.

But how do we reach this level of generosity?  How do we know, in a world filled with so many demands, which “yeses” God is personally calling each of us to?

Lisa Hendey’s new book, The Grace of Yes: Eight Virtues for Generous Living, encourages us to say yes to God according to our unique gifts and limitations.  Breaking the virtue of generosity into more detailed points to ponder, Lisa, the founder of, leads us through personal stories and the lessons she has learned from them, including an unforgettable account of her visit to a Rwandan genocide memorial.

With thought provoking questions and an original prayer at the end of each chapter, the book can be used for personal reflection, or for a group discussion.  Uplifting, inspiring, and filled with practical ways to grow in virtue, The Grace of Yes is a wonderful resource whose message ties in beautifully with the Theology of the Body. This is a book for anyone and everyone who feels called to give more to our aching world, but just wants to know how.
