“Now I know that in the same way I‘ve always believed God’s spirit dwells deeply in the world, it also dwells deeply in me. I’ve known that, cognitively but my life spoke otherwise. Now I know that the best thing I can offer to this world is not my force or energy, but a well tended spirit, a wise and brave soul” ~ Shauna Niequist
This book CHANGED me, it is CHANGING me, it was so needed at just this right time. It was.a soul quencher for me. A Faith reminder. A divine appointment. I LOVE HOW BOOKS JUST LIKE PEOPLE ARE SENT INTO YOUR LIFE AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME!
If you are a woman or a man who has spent your life doing and doing and never stopping to think about what you are doing it for…. I mean really asking yourself, knowing yourself, being true to yourself…. this is for you.
If you are happy in many things but want to find the one or two things that really move you for the rest of your life so you can slow down, then please read this book.
I am sure my husband would have loved it if I had read this before he passed away so that he could have had more of me but thankfully he grew in love with the girl I was with the heart I had and now I have to pour my heart in the best of places. My home. My God. My soul. My Peace.
Oh what gratitude fills my soul for this book. I fell in love with this author because she too is in love with books like myself and that love affair began when I was 10 and shall never wain.
Pa. If you are anything like me you will run out of highlighter before you finish this book…… I did not want it to end.

Hey there I am replying to myself to see if replying to myself works.
Girlfriend, you have so many gifts … love, humor, giving selflessly, knowing your strengths and working on growing yourself everyday … you made a comment one day and it never leaves me (well, a lot of your comments never leave me) but one was “don’t let what you can’t do stop you from doing what you can do” … I feel truly blessed to have you in my life … oh, and another gift, you are one sassy go getter”. Love, hugs and thankfulness … Kay
Oh Kay!!!! I just love how you love and lift me!!!! It is in the loving and the lifting that makes me want to be better so thanks for being a catalyst for that. I love you!! Thanks for sharing yourself with me.
