Ann Garrido admits that she sometimes finds administration draining, even boring, as it fractures her days into "tiny shards of time" that make it impossible to focus on "the big ideas." And yet Garrido has found spiritual gifts in her many years as an administrator in church life. In Redeeming Administration, she reveals those gifts by examining twelve spiritual habits—presenting a saint who embodies each habit—and showing readers how to experience their administrative work as a crucial ministry of the Church. Winner of a 2014 Catholic Press Award in the Professional Book category. (Also available in Kindle and Nook)
