As a child in a non-religious family, Michael Ridenour found a Bible one day and began reading. Initially excited by its lively stories, he paused at the New Testament, faced with a baffling inner question: Where in the world is Christ today? An unexpected answer came during his teenage years with a spontaneous experience of the Christ being, but this only led to more questions. Later, discovering the work of Rudolf Steiner, he found the authentic vision and language he needed to clarify and better comprehend his own experiences, but the questions kept coming. The Greatest Gift Ever Given is a fruit of Ridenour’s life-long search for answers: a book that is at once deeply thoughtful, humorous, philosophical and poetic. In Part I, ‘Raising the Foundation’, he studies the Judeo-Christian mysteries. After humanity’s ‘fall’ into materialism, these mysteries signal the development of human individuality. The impulse for self-hood continues with Christ, who brings a new path of divine love. But the mystery of Christ leads naturally to his shadow. Today, we can no longer escape the question: Where in the world is Judas? Without Judas’s betrayal, Christ’s greatest gift could never have been given. We can’t reject Judas, but should transform him within ourselves. In Part II, ‘Lowering the Temple’, Ridenour relates the theme of metamorphosis to the contemporary world. Once guided by initiates, personal transformation now needs to blossom from within each individual human soul. The topic of evolution takes us to a consideration of the perennially-controversial Charles Darwin, as well as the intuitive approach of Goethe and the living thinking of Rudolf Steiner. A rich treasure-trove of ideas, The Greatest Gift Ever Given sharpens a dynamic focus on current spiritual needs and contributes a thought-provoking response to them.

There is no greater testament to faith, hope, love, and peace than the gift of light to show up to shine through the darkest moments of life. Many times, the why and, how to moments seem difficult to find the answers of how to navigate through. Open Your Greatest Gift is like a guide to show a daily practice on how to activate the characteristics that were planted inside during birth. Once the vow and determination have been made to open up to these scripts, the gifts unfold to be opened. As the scripts are used ongoing, more scripts that may have not been realized show up. Each situation becomes a story that teaches. The story could have a hidden miracle inside that gives hope that anything is possible when the gifts are used. Open Your Greatest Gift has a collection of short stories that discover and uncover how each character learns how to open their greatest gifts while sometimes in the face of defeat, denial, or unknowing. Many times, in the direct face of darkness, it gets granted and delivered. The delivery of the gifts of Joy and Peace along with Love and Gratitude can calm the soul.

The Greatest Gift My Parents Gave Me is a tribute to the efforts of the critical figures in the adoption process, the biological mother and the adoptive parents. Ever since that day of conception, the biological mother faced and conquered adversities of many sorts, leading to the development of qualities that are gifted to her now-adopted child. The adoptive parents contribute their own gifts as they encourage and guide the adoptee into adulthood. From the importance of an individual’s free will to the value of one’s faith, the book explores a total of sixteen gifts, including what inarguably is the greatest gift that could bless anyone. So whether you’re connected to an adoption or not, maybe preparing for parenthood or just a woman unsure about the future of a pregnancy, may you be inspired, moved, and your heart uplifted by the stories, thoughts, and confessions shared in this book.

The greatest gift is not found in our healings, our sufferings or even in what we have or who God has given us. Jesus Christ is that most precious gift. God loved us so much He sent his only Son to die in our place.

For almost seventy years, people the world over have fallen in love with Frank Capra’s classic Christmas movie It’s a Wonderful Life. But few of those fans know that Capra’s film was based on a short story by Philip Van Doren Stern, which came to Stern in a dream one night. Unable at first to find a publisher for his evocative tale about a man named George Pratt who ponders suicide until he receives an opportunity to see what the world would be like without him, Stern published the story in a small pamphlet and sent it out as his 1943 Christmas card. One of those 200 cards found its way into the hands of Frank Capra, who shared it with Jimmy Stewart, and the film that resulted became the holiday tradition cherished today.
