Anne Lamott claims the two best prayers she knows are: "Help me, help me, help me" and "Thank you, thank you, thank you." She has a friend whose morning prayer each day is "Whatever," and whose evening prayer is "Oh, well." Anne thinks of Jesus as "Casper the friendly savior" and describes God as "one crafty mother." Despite--or because of--her irreverence, faith is a natural subject for Anne Lamott. Since -- Traveling Mercies From the Trade Paperback edition.

Anne Lamott is candid and irreverent, funny and inspiring, as she describes her unlikely journey to faith in God.

Whatever your religious proclivities, or lack thereof, Lamott is always refreshing, creative, and surprising with her irreverent humor.

Love love love Lamott, as always. Her memoir writing can't be beat. Looking forward to Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith, and also Help, Thanks, Wow (have already thoroughly enjoyed Bird By Bird and Operating Instructions). Funny, wise, humble, self-aware, and above all, human. Really enjoyable read.

Not your standard Christian writer. Some laugh out loud parts, give your head a shake parts, deeply moving parts.
