Paperback | 128 pages

Gary Jansen, popular author of The 15-Minute Prayer Solution and Life Everlasting, knows how difficult it can be to create significant, sustainable change, especially in our spiritual lives. Sometimes we feel too overwhelmed to even start, and in other cases deepening our relationship with God seems like one more burden among the many we have from day-to-day. In his latest book, Jansen offers an answer that he calls “microshifting”—small, incremental adjustments to the way we think, act, work, and pray that gradually reshape our deeply rooted patterns.

With a blend of masterful storytelling and dozens of practical tips, MicroShifts suggests simple, small changes across many aspects of our lives—everything from how we greet others, how we sleep, and how we deal with the incessant chatter in our own heads—to generate big results physically, mentally, and spiritually. If you are looking for steps to improve your life that are achievable, sustainable, and potentially life-changing, MicroShifts is a powerful place to begin.​


“Easy to read and thoughtful to ponder, Jansen’s advice is well worth the price of this book; recommended for anyone seeking to make meaningful changes in his or her life.” (Kay Winchester, Vermont Catholic)

“Jansen provides relatable experiences from his own life and offers the teaching of St. Ignatius, who spoke of seeking the sacred in all things, as proof positive of the transformative potential of microshifts.” (René Ostberg, editoral assistant, U.S. Catholic, October 2019 issue)​
