Format: Paperback
Sue Monk Kidd has a knack of stating in precise, clear language the words you want to hear about your relationship with God. Not only that, everything in the book is instantly recognizable as some point in your own life. Her style is easy to read, much like a chat over tea, and you will find yourself wishing for more pages. Highly recommended for anyone looking to deepen their relationship with the Creator.

Despite Atomic's rather unfair review, this book serves its purpose - to help the reader search his/her soul, encourage spirituality & provoke thinking in a direction possibly not taken prior to reading the book. I enjoyed every page and found myself a better person for having read it. I laughed out loud, I cried, I had "light bulb" moments - what a book!

Format: Paperback
So tell me why you would ever want to read a Christian inspirational book by a lady who ultimately decided that Jesus was a bunch of hooey and became some new age goddess huckster? Even with all of the books she wrote and wisdom she dispensed in the Christian arena, it didn't work for her and she turned her back on it. Therefore, anything she has to say on the subject of living a Christian life is just so much hot air. She couldn't do it herself and following her advice may take one down the same path of abandoning their Savior. One day she will get to look Jesus in the eye and explain to Him where she thinks He did her wrong!

HASH(0x9ee55e1c) out of 5 stars A new kind of relationship with God June 20 2005
By Karen Potts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having read Sue Monk Kidd's two novels, "The Secret Life of Bees" and "The Mermaid Chair" and having enjoyed them a lot, I was eager to know more about the author herself. This is her first book which was published in 1987, and it tells about a portion of her spiritual journey. She was a young woman who was all too typical of today, a person who tried to be perfect in every aspect of her life. She rushed around baking homemade cookies for every event imaginable, being in charge of several events and ministries in her church, and trying to be the perfect wife and mother. She tried to earn God's love by being the best that she could be and by constantly doing good works. As a result, she wore herself out and began having physical symptoms of the stress she was under. She learned the hard way that it was better to be in fellowship with God rather than rush around earning his favor by works. This is the story of her metamorphosis from an over-stressed wife, mother, and church worker to a true daughter of God who learned to slow down, accept God's love and revel in his presence. There is much to be learned in this book by all Christians who wish to have a closer walk with God.

I read this book years ago and have re-read it many times since. Not only did Sue Monk Kidd's experience resonate with me, but she introduced me to some fantastic writers. I highly recommend this book for anyone searching to know God better.

HASH(0x9ee5669c) out of 5 stars Wonderful July 26 2011
By Darrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I wanted to enhance my daily walk with God and once again, Sue has been extremely helpful with that. She writes so down to earth. She writes about the emptiness that comes before our surrender and then how joy filled and wonderful the journey can be.
