Among them we can find wisdom in the wounds we've carried from birth onward, and these wounds can heal; past regrets must be let go lest they cling to us and drain our energy for life; the loving part of us can always out-wrestle the hating part; surprises of beauty and talent in us wait to be discovered and shared; some of what we thought to be unbreakable truth is now shattered pottery and unmendable; and our struggle to name God and to find a spirituality that enlivens and enriches our existence is less complex than we first thought.

    Highly Recommended!

    Joyce Rupp speaks to my spirituality. Like many of her books that I have read, this book feels as though I am speaking directly to my spiritual advisor. Her experiences help me map my own.

    Wow!

    This book really explains many things I have gone through. It is wonderful to know you are not alone when dealing with mid-life soul searching. Hit so close to home, almost seemed like it was written just for me. A definite recommend!
