This book is both hard to rate and review.

It was perfect for what I wanted from it--short devotionals for when I only had a few minutes. Given their length (most were 1.5 pages), many were surprisingly deep.

McLeroy has a gift for setting a scene quickly. She did a great job of seeing the sacred within the ordinary without crossing the line into cheesy or disbelief (98% of the time, anyway).

However, I found myself wanting more. I felt like she could teach me a lot with more space for her theolog

Not a review as such (it would be worthless since I wrote the book), but I hope readers will consider and use the back matter - a guide for a personal spiritual retreat.
