Lake Stevens man publishes spiritual self-help book
Lake Stevens author Lee Cuesta has published a new book, “Successful Spiritual Waiting: the 7 Maxims.”
In it, Cuesta draws on more than 40 years of experience to unpack the deepest, fullest meaning of waiting on and for God, along with why and how. He gives guidance enabling readers to implement these principles, and shows that waiting is a positive spiritual practice that helps achieve one’s life purpose while reducing stress. Cuesta defines “success” as achieving and fulfilling one’s life purpose, and he describes in detail how to succeed in the area of spiritual waiting.
