Book 46/100: A Spiritual Guide Through Pregnancy by Margaret Hammer
Spiritual Guide Through Pregna - Margaret L. Hammer

This book definitely fills a gap in addressing the spiritual side of pregnancy rather than just addressing the physical/medical/emotional aspects of it. However, it falls short in that it makes a lot of assumptions about the type of woman who is reading it -- it always refers to a woman's partner as her "husband," for example, as if only those who are traditionally married would have an interest in the spirituality of pregnancy. There is no acknowledgment of single motherhood or of other sorts of partnerships -- same-sex partnership, committed relationships that are not marriages, etc. The spirituality is distinctly Christian, which is OK, although it seems then that the title should be a little more explicit since "spiritual" is such a broad term. But some of the meditations are moving and insightful, and the questions could provide some really good journaling prompts. I wish I had found the book earlier in my pregnancy so that I wasn't rushing through all the meditations during the final trimester -- the reflections are definitely more meaningful when read at the proper time in the pregnancy journey.

Vegetarianism (Article) and Christianity

Vegetarianism (Article) and Christianity

The Orthodox Christians obey fasts that sometimes last as long as 1/3 of the whole year. Fasting one does not consume meat or meat products. So, tell me again, what was/is the problem with the vegetarianism within all these Christian countries when their Monks and Saints supported vegetarianism as a physically, mentally and spiritually beneficial diet?

A Beautifully Written Wondeful Dark Tale
The Bear and the Nightingale: A Novel - Katherine Arden

I felt like I was sitting on my Grandmother heart listening to a tale weaved out of hundreds of generations. It was magical, just the right level of dark, and well written. The visual writing was so beautiful I dreamed of the images weaved together in the pages. The story stayed with me long after I finished the book. This would make one fabulous movie !

This story of a young girl in Medieval Russia, her time is filled with magic, pagan beliefs, fears and the church. She was born into this magical world with abilities passed down from her mother. Her abilities to see the spirits of the world around her are not accepted when the church strives to drive the demons out of house and body. The balance of home and forest broken and prices must be paid.

I have missed grand folk tales such as this. What a pleasure I had reading it. This is a debut novel ? I can’t wait to read the next book from her.

Thank you to the publisher for an advanced reading copy for review

How do Christians feel about the Mindfulness Meditation and New Consciousness Spiritual practices?

 

 

'De-mystifying these spiritual methods takes them out of the Religious settings but keeps the seriousness of the self-development and spiritual work.'

Keys of Faith (2016)

Keys of Faith (2016) contains nine doors that come with spiritual keys to open hearts for living.  Its tenets are assembled under each section of this book, which addresses many facets of American culture.  Chapters focus on "all lives matter."  These writing do homage to biblical truths which support scriptural concepts.  While national and international celebrities reflect on the grandiose and omniscient nature of a loving God.
