In Grace Eventually Thoughts on Faith the author of the bestsellers Traveling Mercies and Plan B delivers a poignant funny and bittersweet primer of faith as we come to discover what it means to be fully aliveIn Grace Eventually Thoughts on Faith Lamott examines the ways we're caught in life's most daunting predicaments love mothering work politics and maybe toughest of all evolving from who we are to who we were meant to be This is a complicated process for most of us and Lamott turns her wit and honesty inward to describe her own intimate bumpy and unconventional road to grace and faithI wish grace and healing were abracadabra kinds of things she writes in one of her essays that delicate silver bells would ring to announce grace's arrival But no it's clog and slog and scootch on the floor in silence in the darkWhether she's writing about her unsuccessful efforts to get her money back from an obstinate carpet salesman grappling with the tectonic shifts in her relationship with her son as he matures trying to maintain her faith and humor during politically challenging times or helping a close friend die with dignity Lamott seeks out both the divinity and the humanity in herself and everything around her Throughout these essays she writes of her struggle to find the essence of her faith which she uncovers in the unlikeliest places

    The last five years or so maybe I’ve made it a point to begin the year with a book by Anne Lamott maybe it’s become like reading holiday stories around the holidays something to hopefully remind me us of what is important other than the list of people to buy gifts for Anne Lamott’s words remind me of what is important beyond all the hoopla of the daily ins and outs of living traffic jams or last minute runs to the grocery store or even walking the dog Dogs in my case This year than maybe than others I really wanted to find a way to make sense of some things that really boggle my mind As I read through this not unusual lately politics were on my mind a lot – if you’ve read Anne Lamott’s books or even other reviews of almost any of her books you’ll find at least one review it seems where someone complains about her political leanings More to the point her dislike of George W Bush So through much of this I was thinking both about how reviews for this must include some comments to the effect of how someone wishes she’d stop talking about GWB and all I kept thinking was how I figured Anne Lamott must be in a tizzy over the latest office holder So yes she does mention politics ecology the things you’d expect from her how she tries and sometimes fails to incorporate her faith in her everyday life her son The rebellious teenage years that wear one down It’s been ten years since she wrote Grace Eventually Thoughts on Faith she’s older she talks about the toll of age on her body the toll of being a parent the indignation of getting a ticket for her dog being off leash Some are just rants like she’s called you in a moment where she feels momentarily as though her world is coming apart but needs to get this off her chest to feel so she can examine why she feels this way I seem to hang on to my hates because they help take my mind off the cracked reflection in the mirrorIt’s that willingness to be so raw and real but still charming in her awful behavior that keeps me reading her books every year To share these stories these feelings with the world to transform that into something on the page that is sometimes amusing but always true and honest and beautiful I am really looking forward to her soon to be published Hallelujah Anyway Rediscovering Mercy which is scheduled to be published in a few months
