Powerful, image-filled reflections on listening to and responding to the Holy within and around us
Ginny Wilder offers a collection of prayers, poems, reflections, and stories written from a heart that knows what it is like to dwell in the fringe and in the wilderness. It was her ongoing conversation with God, knowing that her words had holes in them, which helped keep her connected and grounded when leaving and coming back to church. These writings are geared toward those who need a different way to nourish their spiritual journey—the spiritually hungry, lost (and found), seekers, and anyone contemplating their prayer life and relationship with God. The language is simple, the settings are personal, and the conversation is always between our hearts and the heart of our God.
"Be still. Call out your name to the stars. Dig for earthworms. Pray on the sea. Get to know your soul. Listen to your heart. All My Words Have Holes in Them is a powerful love story of what it's like to meet your 'rawest' self for the first time and become the authentic creation God breathed you to be."
—Roger Hutchison, author of The Painting Table, Under the Fig Tree, My Favorite Color Is Blue. Sometimes, and the forthcoming Jesus: God among Us
"Ginny Wilder has a gift of inviting the reader into her stories and poetry until you can feel the wind on your face or hear the creak of the rocking chair."
—Andrea McKellar, Ministry Developer, The Episcopal Church in South Carolina
"If you are seeking an honest form of Christian spirituality this is the place to begin."
