Book Description

From the hearth to the altar, make magic in every moment. Being a Witch isn't limited to casting a spell under the full moon or consecrating a ritual circle. Whether you're calling the Goddess or doing the dishes, your wonderfully witchy ways are woven into everything you do.

With her signature down-to-earth wisdom and warmth, Deborah Blake takes you into the heart of what it means to be a Witch all day, every day. Filled to the brim with practical suggestions, Pagan and Wicca spells, and helpful advice, this essential book brings to light all facets of a modern Witch's life: The seven core beliefs of Witches, mindful eating and health, creating sacred space at home, relationships with non-Pagans, sex and the single Witch, raising Pagan children, solitary and coven practice, Pagan ritual, and green living.

"Deborah Blake has created a practical method of weaving the spiritual into the daily chores of the mundane world in which we must live."-Edain McCoy, author of Advanced Witchcraft and If You Want to Be a Witch

4.0 out of 5 stars A book I reccommend to others... May 29, 2009
Format:Paperback
This is one book I actually recommend to others quite often. This wonderful little gem goes beyond 101 issues and formulated cook books. The book reads very casually, however, don't dismiss it on that account. The book is written in Blake's witty conversational style giving it the feel that you are sitting across from her having a bit of tea whilst talking about some very important issues that arise for any pagan oriented person who has been on the path for awhile. This volume fits nicely into the library of any pagan who does not live in a vacuum.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Read September 12, 2009
Format:Paperback
The Goddess Is in the Details: Wisdom for the Everyday Witch 'The Goddess is in the Details' is an absolutely fantabulous book. Filled with tips and suggestions on how to incorporate your Wiccan faith into your daily life, this is a must read for any Pagan. Not a Wicca 101 book, this one delves more deeply into the spiritual aspect of Wicca and how to walk the path every day, through the good times and bad times. I enjoyed this book very much and refer to it often. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn how to draw upon their spirituality day to day.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you REALLY want to be a witch or pagan August 5, 2009
Format:Paperback
This book is greatly helpful to those wondering if they truly want to be Wiccan or Pagan. The author gives you the information about paganism and being a witch and what it is really like and how to apply it to your life everyday. The author writes the book in entertaining format that keeps your attention while giving you tips and ideas and also making you think about how you would live as a pagan at the end of each chapter. I plan on getting Blakes others books as well because of her writing style and because I know that her sence of humor make her books fun to read. The thing I liked most of all was the fact that the author describes being a witch as something that can be easy to live everyday if that is what you have in your heart. Granted you still have to use your instinct and intuition and the harm none law with certain aspects of the craft though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not What I Had Hoped March 9, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book in hopes of working some more of my religious beliefs into my every day life. I've already been committed to my faith for a number of years and I wanted to recharge the day to day with meaning. I had hoped that this book would provide some suggestions to help me achieve that goal, but instead I found that the author seemed to talk down to the reader.
It felt like a lot of the jokes and asides that might have been meant to bring the otherwise spiritual guidance down to earth just made it seem condescending; as though the reader could only handle a few deep thoughts at once before an interjection if elbow nudging , "y'know what I mean?"

The author quotes some rather weighty texts, but then proceeds to dumb them down to the point where I found myself wanting to continue reading the books she'd quoted rather than her own. There was no extrapolation of the passages quoted, nor any real new ideas or concepts to be gleaned from her accompanying thoughts.

If you're new to the Pagan lifestyle, this book may give you a step beyond the basics but it doesn't offer anything more substantial than that. Wiccans looking for ways to lead a more spiritual every day life would do best to look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read More Than Once! December 17, 2012
By Mel
Format:Paperback
Read this book more than once. I read it a couple years ago, and while I thought it was 1) informative, 2) though-provoking, and 3) well-written, I found myself saying, "Huh, I guess that was it. Now what?" But that wasn't it! So much of a text is also about what the reader brings to it. Having recently reread The Goddess Is in the Details, I had a much different experience this time around; I understood the book differently (and more fully). The text seemed richer; Blake's words held more meaning for me because I had become more involved in my own Craft as a growing person. The Witchcraft present in this book is truly life-integrated and genuine. Blake obviously "walks her talk," gives useful and practical advice, and inspires the reader to ethically create his/her own life. There's just no hand-holding on Blake's part; she makes you fill in the gaps. (After all, what Witch/Pagan/Wiccan tells all her secrets?)

Here are some things I think Blake did especially well: 1) The "A Note on Names" section was very important and was done thoroughly enough. Blake rightfully encourages the reader to think about what he/she calls him/herself. 2) Blake spends a lot of time talking about living/dealing with other people - both pagan and non-pagan. I think that is an important topic to create dialogue around, and she approaches it seriously but with some humor (perhaps to lighten up any hurt we may have experienced). 3) It is, overall, a very organized book. She divides the text into clear and useful sections - covering all areas of life. (Again, truly integrating the Craft, and giving you space to reflect upon your own life path.)

So, I hope Blake writes a sequel to this book... inspiring each of us to explore Witchcraft (and, of course, ourselves!) even more deeply. Blake is a wonderful writer and mentor for those who always see themselves as students of life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Preachy October 5, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book thinking it would be full of small ways to incorporate the Goddess into my every day. Unfortunately, all I got was preachy nonsense about eating right, exercising, and practicing safe sex. All of these things are good advice, but didn't everyone take Health in high school? I don't think any of these things make you more or less in touch with the Goddess. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I traded this book in for Cottage Witchery by Ellen Dugan and never looked back.

More About the Author

I live in beautiful upstate New York in a hundred and twenty year old farmhouse with five cats (including Magic the Cat, my co-author on several books). Between keeping up with the house and feeding the cats,I also manage an artists' cooperative shop, make jewelry and do a few other esoteric things on the side.

After writing numerous books on modern witchcraft for Llewellyn Worldwide (#7 to be released in April 2014, with #8 in 2015), I am turning my hand to fiction, with two paranormal romances from Berkley. (Yes, there's a witch in them. You had to ask?)

When I am not writing, I love to read (Jennifer Crusie, Katie Fforde, Tamora Pierce and Susan Wiggs are among my favorite fiction writers, and I read a lot of non-fiction about Witchcraft, spirituality, gardening and cooking).
I love to hear from people who read my books.
