Lots to Offer for the Imperfect
on November 25, 2016
I borrowed this book at my local library and, after reading it, ordered a copy for my daughter. Traveling Mercies is an honest account of Lamott's life (warts and struggles) and her faith in God. I, too, have faith, but find I'm often stereotyped as to my political beliefs and my mind set (narrow mindedness by default apparently) simply because I believe in God. This stereotyping gets so very old!!!! Lamott's perspective on God is genuine and refreshing. One of my daughters currently struggles with three of the same issues Ms. Lamott fought. My hope is my daughter will see herself in this book and realize God loves her even if she isn't perfect and, on the flip-side, she doesn't have to be perfect to have a relationship with God.
