Author: Micha Boyett
Synopsis: This “…is a story of nourishment for anyone who hungers for rich spirituality and has come up empty. It’s a story for anyone who is trying to reconcile great big dreams with the ordinariness of their days. It’s a story of discovering divine kindness and affection in the most mundane moments of life.”
Why I can’t live without this book: I’m pretty convinced that life is just one big game of Hide and Go Seek, one giant puzzle of lost and found, of losing and finding, over and over again. When I stepped into motherhood, I approached it like I had with everything else in life: I got this! Ain’t no thang but a chicken wing! But the all-consuming world I found myself in – that I wouldn’t have traded for anything, mind you – turned my world upside down. (Add to that trading a career in the non-profit sector for the unknown of caring for my son, writing and speaking). It’s this big idea of getting lost – in faith, in life, in motherhood – that makes us yearn to be found again. True confessions: Micha is a dear friend of mine. So, does that make me partial to her writing? Maybe. But it doesn’t matter: her writing remains gorgeous, regardless of what I have to say about it.
(One of my) favorite quotes: “Prayer is not an act I perform, words I recite, a behavior I strive to maintain. It is a returning. It is a broken life finding healing, a misplaced soul recognizing home.”
So, Found: like it, love it, want some more of it? Didn’t really resonate with it? If this book wasn’t your cup of tea, what favorite “lost and found” story HAVE you loved?
