365 Days of Peace
Benedictions to End Your Day in Gentleness and Hope
By the end of the day we're often exhausted, worn down by meeting other's needs and our own, frustrated by things that happened today, and anxious about what's going to happen tomorrow. In 365 Days of Peace, writer and theologian Jessica Kantrowitz offers a moment of peace for that transition into the evening. In each of these short benedictions, first posted on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, she identifies struggles common to us all yet specific enough that some readers have wondered if she was reading their journals. She then speaks peace over them and over us, offering blessings that are pastoral but also inclusive, accessible for people of any faith, or of none.
Light a candle, make a cup of tea, and settle into the evening with this book, in gentleness, hope, and peace.

"No part of life - no experience, no pang, no sensation, no rhythm - escapes Jessica's gaze. Through her lens, the hard and the heavy narratives of life soften and bend. Her words are sutures, gently pulling my frayed and throbbing edges together at the end of day; the benedictions my child-soul ever asked for and never received. Let her gently stitch you up too." ~River Paasch, author of Millenneagram: The Enneagram Guide for Discovering Your Truest, Baddest Self
