Grace (Eventually)

I finished reading Anne Lamott’s Grace (Eventually)  last week.  I really enjoyed it. 

I added it to My Library list and wrote  a blurb out there about it.  I was really struck with how little devotional literature I had read from women.  If you want to get really serious I have not read much devotion literature at all, something I need to work on perhaps. 

But, this book was a short easy and ever enjoyable and applicable.  Since reading it I have found another couple of her books to dive into soon.

    I don’t know if I would consider it devotional literature — maybe it is — but Barbara Brown Taylor is an author that I think everyone should read. “Leaving Church” and “Altar in the World” are at the top of the list for me.

    I’ve loved everything of Anne Lamott’s that I’ve read. And, I agree with Lisa–Barbara Brown Taylor’s books are wonderful. You might like Annie Dillard, too.

    Well, by devotional writing I mean, they are short easy essays about spirituality.

    UPDATE: I went junkin’ today (that is doing the NWA Flea Market and Goodwill circut and bought “Traveling Mercies,” “Plan B,” and “Bird by Bird.” I have a good amoung of reading to do!
