Enumclaw, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/27/2017 -- A powerhouse leader in the direct-selling industry reveals the spiritual transformations that changed her life and undergirded her how-to-succeed-in-business story. Chris Manion, author of God's Patient Pursuit of My Soul (Redemption Press, February 2017) was a national executive with over 5,000 women and men in her $20 million sales organization. Before retiring in 2013 to focus on her writing, this inspirational speaker earned the company's highest awards for developing leaders and sales for over twenty consecutive years.
Despite her business acumen and success, this type-A super achiever felt a longing to know God since childhood, a longing that attending church on Sundays did not assuage. Manion began a journey of connecting with God in deeper ways, and evolved into a contemplative Catholic. With dexterous use of metaphor, she leads readers between resisting and following God's call in this candid and often humorous memoir ranging from prison to podium, from guitar strings to monasteries.
Nicki Keohohou, CEO and co-founder of the Direct Selling World Alliance (DSWA) says, "From entrepreneur to literary talent, Chris Manion resonates with the DSWA' mission of personal and professional development by pointing out that the more deeply you commit to serving the Lord and His purpose, the more you are called upon to develop yourself to the fullest."
This cutting-edge memoir gives real insight to the natural way spiritual life can intersect daily life. Marion Roach Smith, author of The Memoir Project: A Thoroughly Non-Standardized Text for Writing and Life describes it as "A handbook, in the form of a memoir, on how to let the beauty of life be a feast for the soul."
