Judith Wright Favor is the author of the unique book Sabbath Economics.
Since the later part of the last century, we have seen spiritual, and self-help books cover physical, financial, and career growth discussions. Counselors and spiritual gurus have come to recognize that personal growth and well-being means demands a comprehensive approach to an individual’s daily experience. It includes his or her environment, livelihood, political beliefs, daily routine, the people he or she interacts with on a daily basis as his or her economic status. All these contribute to his disposition, outlook, and core values. The book Sabbath Economics: A Spiritual Guide to Linking Love with Money is a unique book that covers a personal narrative on one’s spiritual journey, a memoir, and a collection of stories that guide readers on organizing their finances and live a more comfortable life. Today, we will learn more about the author behind this excellent book.

Sabbath Economics: A Spiritual Guide to Linking Love with Money
Sabbath Economics: A Spiritual Guide to Linking Love with Money is the complete title of Judith Wright Favor’s 2020 spiritual guide book that focuses on finance and improving one’s outlook. Favor’s refreshing insights and wisdom are told via stories and personal narratives.
“Sabbath Economics (the ‘mother book’) is a combination of how-to, memoir, and journey of personal and spiritual growth. The writing style is informal, conversational, and occasionally intimate. Judith Favor offers inventive ideas to support readers in exploring new approaches to old difficulties. Contemplative money management involves a shift from head-centered control to soul-centered attentiveness. Calling upon your Inner Guide is an art anyone can learn, for all of us know the power of meaning and purpose when it touches us. Stories explore themes of slowing, owing, owning, consuming, sharing, neighboring, and belonging. Practices support giving full attention to our true selves, our dearest ones, our hurting planet, and our Sacred Source. Attention is a pure form of generosity. Increasing attentiveness is a core value brought forth in these pages.” (book description)
