I received this book inspirational reflections as a gift from Ann Cavera with no requirement for a review, positive or otherwise. However, that's exactly what I'm going to do--this is a great little book for daily readings. And I believe those outside the Roman Catholic faith--as I am--will also be inspired by these little homilies. When I first picked up Grounded in God, I started reading, intending to charge right through it. It didn't take long before I realized that was a little like trying to eat an entire steer in one sitting. There are 112 little one-page ditties. I'm loving these little reflections, so now I'm reading it like I would a devotional and enjoying it a lot more. My favorite so far is a story about hubcaps, of all things. It seems Jim's car was missing a couple of hubcaps, and he went looking for them--in his Sunday suit. When people stared at him, he realized... Well, get the book and find out out for yourself.
