My book is now in stock at Amazon and its official "launch" is but 4 days away. Wow! If you haven't gotten a copy, go check it out.
If you have, feel free to buy more as Christmas gifts. And if you are a real over-achiever, give them away with some nice jam and a loaf of bread and you will help nourish both the body and soul together...
I am really grateful and honored to share this starred review from Publisher's Weekly:
"In her debut, Anglican priest Warren shows readers how to turn the mundane and often frustrating aspects of daily life into a reflection on the sacred. Working her way through a typical day—her morning routine, busywork such as checking email, fights with her spouse—Warren seamlessly blends together lived realities with theological reflections. Her writing is lyrical and often humorous, and she has a gift for making theological concepts seem easy to understand and (perhaps most importantly) easy to live."

I am also happy to let you know that I have an essay on prayer, using "other people's prayers," The Book of Common Prayer, and authenticity at Comment Magazine. I also got to write about how Jonathan and I struggled in marriage and some redemption in that. This piece was one of my more personal, and it was a joy to write. Plus, the people at Comment are very cool to work with. Comment is a great publication and if you don't know about it, check it out and subscribe.

Thanksgiving is next week. I love Thanksgiving. Because it is about gratitude and food and refuses to be commercialized. It doesn't sell much besides turkey and so the poor holiday gets overlooked, so little fanfare, which is why it is so great. So be grateful, give thanks, give thanks so much that it is awkward-- tell all the people thank you, eat mashed potatoes, and whatever you do, don't shop. Hunker down and rest. We need it.
