Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Applying the symbolism of the empty Zen begging bowl, Bender graciously shares another leg of her spiritual journey, the previous being her stay with the Amish recorded in her best seller, Plain and Simple (HarperCollins, 1989). Listening to the author (who also serves as reader), one has to admire her zest for life and determination for self-discovery as she recounts the experiences that filled her bowl daily and revealed the sacred. She learned that miracles can and do occur when we accept whatever happens to us each day, work from the heart, do less, and listen and relax more. She tells of the power in small things, the beauty in imperfection, and the boundless effects of generosity. Bender's findings are pure and simple and not unheard of; however, it is the fresh context in which she places them that makes Everyday Sacred a special and unique program. Recommended for inspirational collections.-Barbara J. Vaughan, State Univ. Coll. at Buffalo Lib., N.Y.
