More Godby Constance Bovier
Memories of a scratchy starched dress, a cold church and a baffling Sunday school lessons provided little foundation for a practical faith, so it's not surprising that Constance Bovier drifted far from religion as an adult. But when Twelve Step recovery programs intervened, offering relief from problems she couldn't solve alone, she got more than she bargained for - more than she even wanted at first - a slowly dawning relationship with God.More God traces Constance Bovier's journey from wary agnosticism into a non-judgmental, all-encompassing Twelve Step spirituality and, finally, into vibrant Christianity. She writes openly about her joys and sorrows, her traumas and triumphs and, with a keen eye for the divine significance in the details of daily life, distills perceptive lessons from her experiences. These universal lessons and the resilient belief she shares offer valuable guideposts for others who've been circumnavigating their own questions of faith, just as she once did. Constance Bovier's story reaches far beyond the Twelve Step recovery community to provide encouragement and inspiration for anyone who senses a soul-deep longing, anyone struggling with growing faith ... anyone hungry for more God.
