Jan Richardson is one of the wonderful voices of calm and reason amongst the chaos. I picked up nearly everything of hers during the pandemic and have found that her prayers, even in times where I am flustered bring a sense of calm.
This book is particularly beautiful in its printing and communicates a great sense of depth in understanding who God is through words and art.
This year and the past few have been an inundation of grief and in all the ways I didn't expect. Richardson's words do not overstep or ignore the pain that is part of understanding this Christian life, or this awkward pilgrimage. Richardson also doesn't force us to face it alone. Her beautiful words and understanding of a deeply loving God are a balm for all looking to heal.
