Bold Spirit by Linda Lawrence Hunt
"I was intrigued by the title and synopsis of this book. As it turned out, it was my own little endurance journey to finish it, but the interesting bits made the high-school-history-report style of the writing tolerable. This was an interesting sto..." Read more of this review »

I enjoyed the story which would have been best left to stand on its own. The lengthy moralizing in the epilogue did nothing to enhance the story, in fact, quite the oppoite.

I feel like I just scratched the surface of this book and want to start it all over again. The next time through I plan to read slowly and prayerfully. The last chapter is especially good, what a calibration for all believers! If we are truly honest ...more

Ann Voskamp
“Wherever you are, be all there." I have lived the runner, panting ahead in worry, pounding back in regrets, terrified to live in the present, because here-time asks me to do the hardest of all: just open wide and receive.”
Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are

Muriel Barbery
“Madame Michel has the elegance of the hedgehog: on the outside she is covered in quills, a real fortress, but my gut feeling is that on the inside, she has the same simple refinement as the hedgehog: a deceptively indolent little creature, fiercely solitary--and terrible elegant. ”
Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog

Ann Voskamp
“On every level of life, from housework to heights of prayer, in all judgement and effort to get things done, hurry and impatience are sure marks of the amateur.”
Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are

A.A. Milne
“But it isn't easy,' said Pooh. 'Because Poetry and Hums aren't things which you get, they're things which get you. And all you can do is to go where they can find you.”
A.A. Milne, The House at Pooh Corner

Muriel Barbery
“So here is my profound thought for the day: This is the first time I have met someone who seeks out people and who sees beyond. That may seem trivial but I think it is profound all the same. We never look beyond our assumptions and, what's worse, we have given up trying to meet others; we just meet ourselves. We don't recognize each other because other people have become our permanent mirrors. If we actually realized this, if we were to become aware of the fact that we are only ever looking at ourselves in the other person, that we are alone in the wilderness, we would go crazy. When my mother offers macaroons from Chez Laduree to Madame de Broglie, she is telling herself her own life story and just nibbling at her own flavor; when Papa drinks his coffee and reads his paper, he is contemplating his own reflection in the mirror, as if practicing the Coue method or something; when Colombe talks about Marian's lectures, she is ranting about her own reflection; and when people walk by the concierge, all they see is a void, because she is not from their world.


As for me, I implore fate to give me the chance to see beyond myself and truly meet someone.”
Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog
