Almost every woman knows the press of busy days days when we can't keep track of what we've done (or haven't done), much less find five minutes to rest. These daily meditations from best-selling author Barbara Crafton - wife, grandmother, priest, retreat leader, and spiritual director - will help women restore the balance and bring perspective into their daily lives.
Crafton explores the things women know well: bags under the eyes, people who monopolize meetings, office politics, middle-age pride, kids leaving home, faith, love, destiny, the impossible images women's magazines perpetuate, friendship, and many more. Here she becomes the wise and funny friend every woman needs every day.
"Crafton, an Episcopal priest, presents a series of 365 finely crafted daily meditations that urge women gently and persuasively to seek serenity in the midst of their harried lives. With evocative imagery and sparkling narrative, Crafton locates the sacred in daily experiences such as a mother and child's sharing a subway ride to work and school and a single mother's quest to provide food, housing, and love for her children. These powerful meditations are beautifully rendered and cut across the range of women's experiences. Highly recommended." - Library Journal
