Suffering the loss of her father and grandmother, and dealing with the ending of a relationship left the author tired, bereft, disappointed, emotionally drained, and feeling like God had forgotten her. She wondered what she could do to heal from this holy triumvirate of personal pain.
She decided that spirituality would be the context from which she would make her journey back to herself. If she felt like God had forgotten her, then she would look for him everywhere and in the eyes of everyone she met. She made a commitment to visit a different place of worship every week for a year, whether that place of worship reflected her religious tradition or not. In total, she visited sixty-one churches, temples, mosques, synagogues, and gathering places in the United States, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Nigeria and South Africa.
My 52 Weeks of Worship is the story of one woman's courageous journey. Read and see-will her journey lead her to deep, dark places in her soul or help her find peace and acceptance?

This is a great read! At first I was nervous because the book was a little longer and I don't have as much time as I would like to read fun books. So was happy too see that the book is organized in a way that doesn't force you to read it straight through - I have actually just been using the table of contents to hop around and explore different religions that I am interested in learning more about.
