Wherever you look, there's trouble and wonder, pain and beauty, restoration and darkness--sometimes all at once. Yet amid the confusion, if you look carefully, in nature or in the kitchen, in ordinariness or in mystery, beyond the emotion muck we all slog through, you'll find it eventually: a path, some light to see by, moments of insight, courage, or buoyancy. In other words, grace. Lamott knows and lives by this belief, most of the time. In these essays, she recounts the missteps, detours, and roadblocks in her walk of faith.--From publisher description.

Lamott navigates the same world and obstacles as you and I with a strong faith and good friends to see her along the way. In essays covering topics ranging from apologizing for an impulsive and snarky email, to sitting on a panel and speaking out in support of women's health issues at a Catholic-based conference, and reflecting on her drug-fueled past mistakes, Lamott shares her gift for asking for, and receiving, forgiveness.

I like reading Anne Lamott. She's honest, authentic, and speaks her mind. It's like having a one-sided conversation when reading her books, and quite often her stuff hits me just right when I'm needing a little spiritual pick-me-up. Still, this isn't as good as Traveling Mercies. But the way Lamott connects to her reader is undeniable, and reading this still makes me want to read through all of her books.

Another good one by Anne Lamott, though I must confess I've enjoyed others of hers more (especially Bird by Bird, Operating Instructions, and Plan B - those are my favourites). Still looking forward to reading more by her - there's usually at least one turn of phrase or moment that makes me laugh out loud, and there's always plenty of comfort in being in good company with other struggling human beings who are striving after those moments of grace.
