Small Victories by Anne Lamott
The Chicago Tribune said about this book: "Anne Lamott is practically a household word in the peeling-back-the-soul department. She's utterly disarming. She's hysterically funny. One minute, you're falling off your chair laughing, and the next, you're gasping for air, because Lamott has just unfurled a sentence that cuts straight to the heart of what you really needed to know." All of which I totally agree with and couldn't have said any better myself. She is irreverent in her style and approach to the subject of faith, so she may not be everybody's cup of tea. But, she truly has a gift for emotional intensity and soul searching and her self-deprecating humor is delightful. This book is honest, vulnerable, and beautifully written. If you are looking for some inspiration during these bleak winter days, pick it up.
