This is a warm and compelling book that enables readers to see themselves with fresh tenderness. In an evocative and engaging manner, it offers hope and encouragement in the face of the hectic stress-filled demands of contemporary life.
Pat Livingston listens to life with an attentive, finely-tuned ear. She draws on her keen observations to distill central truths and makes these learnings real through the powerful use of anecdote and story.
Readers will recognize themselves and their experiences in her narratives and images as she "sketches the landscape of life distilling meaning from the curious amalgam of anguish and wonder, boredom and breakthrough that is life".
She explores the geography of loneliness, suffering, mercy, forgiveness, gift and more to express in a poignant way, that spirituality is what we live everyday, not something "out there" to be reached for. We learn that God is a hidden presence in our lives.
