Sr. Mary Lea’s lighthearted examples of prayer makes jumping into a personal relationship with God easy to do. Every short and fun-to-read chapter kicks off with a witty and provocative heading. And there are eighty (80) of them to enjoy. Each one is a comforting quick pick-me-up. Some of my favorites are, “Are We There Yet?”, “Ho-Hum Prayer”, “Spitefully Yours”, and “Thanks for Nothing!”.
Most refreshing is that the Crabby Mystic makes it clear: nuns are human too. By sharing her everyday reaction to life in ways that we can all identify with is enlightening. Her knack of combining compassion with a sense of humor gives readers permission to enjoy simple methods of connecting with God. This is likely the friendliest book on prayer you will ever have the pleasure of reading. Applying any of her suggestions will convince anyone, devout or not, that prayer is an effective and practical solution to everyday problems.
