Here are a few links:

This book. I am rereading it already for the second time. My prediction is it will become a classic. The kind of book that we will still be reading in 100 years. I tried to explain it to someone else and the best I could come up with is: It is what Practicing His Presence would be like if it was written by a modern-day woman. Deep, poetic, raw and catalytic in its passion. Reading this book has challenged my inner life. I am so grateful for Ann Voskamp's humility.

Emily's series and words about art. 

This year's daily Lenten reads from The Book of Common Prayer.


And, maybe surprising most of all me, these all overlap. In such beautiful ways.

OH how funny, Misha. I have recently been reading this book, and though I really just know you through your blog, I kept thinking, if she has not read this book, she would love it! I have to tell her (you) about it, just in case she doesn't know! I am already planning to turn it into a devotional for myself all year long. Ah, I lovvvveeee this book!

Shauna - that is how I read it when we in NZ! As a devotional! It is too rich to read fast, huh? That is why I am rereading it again. I keep wanting to soak more up from it.

I'm reading very slowly through it as well. Sometimes (like the Bible and other devotional books) I have to make myself pick it up, because it's not a light read, not an "escape" ... but I know I'll be nourished and enlightened every time.

I just read the chapter on how fear/anxiety makes us "practical atheists." Wow. That will stay in my spiritual digestive system for a while, although it's made its way out in conversation already ...

I rushed through it the first time, trembling for Ann.

Now I'm going through it word by sacred word, with a notebook.

I am enjoying Emily's series - something new for me.
