Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert

You’re wishin’ too much, baby. You gotta stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone oughtta be. 

 

Elizabeth Gilbert

 

Happy birthday, Elizabeth Gilbert! The author of Eat, Pray, Love discovered her love of reading and writing while growing up on a small Christmas tree farm in Litchfield, Connecticut. Her family did not own a television or a record player, so Gilbert and her sister entertained themselves with books and plays.

Pray For Silence
Pray For Silence - Linda Castillo Pray For Silence - Linda Castillo Kate Burkholder has to investigate the killing of an entire family. As she digs she discovers disturbing details about the case, about a gentle girl dragged into a world she doesn't understand whose life is utterly changed and then ended.

It's an interesting story and I enjoyed reading the story and meeting Kate and her cohorts again.

Now Enrolling: Prayer 101
Ways to Pray: Growing Closer to God - Cardinal Donald W Wuerl

Everyone comes from different religious backgrounds. For those of you who have been with me since the start of this blog, you know that my particular religious background is that of a cradle-born Catholic, the daughter of two converts to the Catholic faith (one of whom has a Ph.D in Theology and has taught Theology in Catholic colleges since I was a baby); you know that my educational background has always steered toward the Catholic side, what with using Kolbe Academy as a high school program and having gone to the University of Saint Francis for my B.A.; you know that my life hasn't been a life devoid of guidance and growth in my spirituality.

 

This book taught me a lot.

 

Cardinal Donald Wuerl's Ways to Pray: Growing Closer to GOD is a good book for anybody in any walk of spiritual life. Don't be scared by the fact that this book taught a cradle Catholic with a very formative religious upbringing; whether you are like me and have been praying since you could talk, or whether you have never said a prayer in your life (or, at least, have said very few!), this book will offer you a Prayer 101 that meets you where you are.

 

How? How can a book meet people with very different experiences, in very different places in life and development, right where they are...right where they need to be met?

Be Careful What You Pray For - Kimberla Lawson Roby

Alicia, Alicia, Alicia. Smh.   The good man wasn't good enough because you couldn't be carefree with money.   Now you've got yourself a man who allows you buy whatever, whenever.  Oh, but wait, he's also a Class A, no good, womanizing, self serving jerk off. 

 

They say women look for their father in a mate.   Well, you've got that and then some. Good luck!

Eat, Pray, Love
Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert As a young woman, this book spoke to me. It covered a lot of the personal struggles and passions I have encountered in the last 5-10 years.[return][return]I must admit, I started reading this book a long time ago and then set it down for a couple of years. At first, I was a little annoyed at Gilbert's voice. She seemed to be a little full of herself. Picking the book back up later on, I realized that I, too, had gone through a "selfish" phase, focusing on me, myself, and I, in order to balance out my life and gain the self-confidence I needed. It makes me wonder if most all women need to go through this seemingly "selfish" phase in their lives, especially since women are traditionally the caretakers of the world, making sure that everything and everyone is okay before they check their own pulse. This book is a great reminder that, especially as a woman, one needs to take care of themselves before taking care of others. By taking care of yourself, you'll have more to give to others, so it just makes sense. I'm very glad I picked this book back up and finished it, it's well worth the 4 stars.
