Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

A Woman's Journey to God

A Woman's Journey to God - Joan Borysenko I really loved this book. It helped that I brought it with me on vacation, and had the luxury of dipping into it whenever I felt like it and taking as much time as I needed to take it all in and process its wonderful ideas and feminine, spiritual perspective of science and life. Ms. Borysenko really weaves all her ideas together beautifully, through story and humor. And I am forever thankful to her for pointing out that women have a different spiritual story than men. We are not climbing Jacob's ladder, but in fact, turning through Sarah's Circle. This book is a keeper, because I know I will dip back into it, whenever my spiritual life feels a little off track.
