This book was by no means revolutionary, but it provided great reminders to ask the Divine for help, know your limits, and live gratefully for your blessings.

This book lacks substance and at times it seems like the author is just rambling to fill in some space.

Three essential prayers for those times when it's hard to express strong emotion into prayer. A short powerful read and one to keep near.

i find this book so easy to read and yet give me so much practical ways to live and continue on my rocky journey of faith

gives me HELP on how to deal with hard questions of family, work and religion

reminds me to say THANKS when I feel complaining about some of my nonsensical entitlement issues in a first world county

and amazingly look up and WOW, my God is real and knows how unstable my feelings are but continues to love and watch over me

you did it again Ms. Lamott!

Short. Cheerful. Harmless

This is a FABULOUS book! It's not very long but OH-SO-CHEWY!

Anne Lamott writes in a style that makes you think you're having an intimate conversation 1-1 with her. And yet, she brings in so many powerful examples and writes with such honest that you need to stop and consider regularly.

A wonderful book for anyone (Christian or otherwise) who is seeking a deeper prayer life

Annie's hit another home run. This little book is very readable and very wise.
