Our Favorite Resources from 2022

Updated: Jan 3


Written by Erika Castiglione


I love year end lists (best books, movies, recipes, photographs, etc.), so I reached out to the rest of the staff and asked what resources they found edifying this past year. I thought it would be fun and helpful to share some of our “best of” spiritual resources with you. Links are included for all resources except books. Please reach out if you have any questions about any of these or if you want to share your own.
