This is not your typical book on faith. Anne Lamott shares the stories of her spiritual awakening and transformation in a refreshingly candid and endearing. Her writing style always strikes me as poetic and funny. Lamott offers an honest look into her life, her search for meaning, her encounters with God, and her struggle with destructive addictions. With a sense of humor and a dose of irreverence Lamott reflects on her deepest fears, her painful losses, and her overwhelming desire for meaning and love in her life. Her tales are told with poignant insights and real pain as she offers wit, grace and hope for living life to the fullest and beyond. Traveling Mercies offers every woman and man, in search of meaning and spirituality, a traveling companion.
