Anne Lamott is so open and funny and she is disarming. This book makes you think and appreciate. I have recommended it to numerous friends and I have given it as gifts to all of my children. It is refreshing. I love it. And I use her prayers all of the time. My favorite is "Thank you, thank you, thank you." She may change the way you think about religion. But she will make you laugh out loud and she will astonish you.

Real life faith
This is a powerful book, full of the thoughts and experiences of one who seeks God.

A fairly quick read, this memoir traces the author's spiritual journey. Though she grew up in a non-religious family, she was heavily influenced by the faiths of her friends and neighbors.
Her struggles with addiction and single motherhood are also detailed here, but each story serves to illuminate some truth about faith or spirituality that she has learned.
While this is not a strictly Christian text, it does raise many good points about the actual practice of religion and worship in the Christian church today. Her emphasis is on the power of God to change lives and the power of community to provide unconditional love.

Anne Lamott is an outrageous and wonderful writer. She wrote about her experiences, many of them sad and difficult (in other words ,real), and her reaction to them in ways that were both inspiriational and uplifting to me.
I have passed this book on to a dear friend and will give it as gifts to others, if they are fortunate!
