Description
In Firstlight, bestselling author Sue Monk Kidd offers readers an intimate glimpse into the early years of her journey as both writer and spiritual seeker. Drawn from the author's early writings for guideposts and to a lesser extent, other publications, this selection of personal reflections and essays is organized around thirteen spiritual motifs and interwoven to create a compelling narrative about the author's spiritual awakening. Included are writings about the author's multiple roles as mother, daughter, wife, nurse, and writer. There are recoleections aabout her extensive travels and reflections on her childhood and marriage. And there are musings on a stream of ordinary moments--watching a bird feeder, a homeless man, a golf tournament--all of which added richness and meaning to the author's journey. In every life there are defining moments when one's heart begins to open.
