Poet and author Luci Shaw guides you into a deeper understanding of how to cultivate the life of the soul in relationship to God. Water My Soul speaks of the interior life in images of garden and wilderness, seed and soil, watering and waiting-metaphors for the process that leads to the spouting of the seed, the greening of the leaf, and the eventual harvest of flower and fruit.
This book speaks straight to the heart, helping you enjoy a lifelong partnership with God as you cultivate a rich inner life-a life characterized by growth in wisdom and godliness.

"Luci Shaw is one of our best writers. Read this wonderful book, and for heaven's sake pick up some copies for your friends!"
-Annie Dillard

"Water My Soul is a profoundly rooted book that reminds us all to slow down, breathe deeply, and experience God at work. Luci Shaw displays the wisdom of a woman who has lived well and the child-like wonder of a believer who continues to discover new reasons to believe. This book will be a classic-a volume to be reread whenever life seems to spin out of control."
-Dale Hanson Burke

In Water My Soul, the well-known Christian poet Luci Shaw reflects on the importance of "soul-tending." Drawing on her many years of experience as a gardener (as well as a keen observer of creation, both as poet and photographer) she invites readers to explore gardening as a metaphor for the ways we tend or nourish our inner lives. A very gentle book that one can profitably sip from in small, prayerful doses, which is how I found myself reading it. There are many wonderful bits of wisdom to harvest or glean from its pages.
