About the book:

We all know George Washington the fearless leader, the brilliant general, our first president, and "The Father of Our Country". What we often overlook is Washington's deep spirituality.

Now, in Faith of Our Founding Father: The Spiritual Journey of George Washington, best-selling author Janice T. Connell gives an in-depth examination of Washington's spiritual life. Drawing upon Washington's personal writings, public speeches, eyewitness accounts and letters, Connell reveals the practical, down-to-earth faith that guided him throughout his life. From narrow escapes on the battlefield to braving cold and starvation, Washington often credited his life to "the all powerful dispensations of Providence".

In a world wracked by wars, terrorism, disease, starvation, immorality, and tyranny, the life of George Washington has a lot to teach us. The father of our country faced countless challenges throughout his life, not only on the road to establishing our nation, but also in his childhood, scarred by the early death of his father. It was George Washington's deep personal faith that allowed him to triumph over life's adversities, and it steeled him with the profound inner strength that carried him from the dark days of Valley Forge to the pinnacle of the Presidency.

This spiritual biography includes the entire text of the Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior in Company and Conversation, a text Washington learned by heart as a boy and that continued to guide his values throughout his life. In addition, it includes Washington's daily prayers. His prayer book, with a distinct prayer for the morning and afternoon of each day of the week, gave him comfort and strength all through his years.

George Washington was no stranger to sorrow, cold, hunger, persecution, violence, or terrorism. His deep sense of spirituality allowed him to stand strong in the face of adversity and triumph in the darkest of times. His story can bring similar strength and comfort to us all.
