What do you do? You've answered that question many ways. Sometimes defensively, as if your job defined who you were an established your worth. Other times with satisfaction at the achievements, at home or at work, you have attained. But is what you do all there is to life? To you? His life in never–ending vertical climb on somebody's career ladder, or is there more? Authors and real-life sisters Sandra Finley Doran and Dale Finley Slongwhite say Yes. Gathering is a collection of tender stories that embrace life's large subjects such as identity seeking, child raising, marriage, illness, education, religion, deaths, and friendship. Doran and Slongwhite connect with the reader on the front lines of life––struggling to make ends meet, handling children's crises, and working on marriages. They bear their souls with uncommon candor and vulnerability to encourage us to gather and treasure life's varied experiences that produce balance, fulfillment, color, and richness. Doran and Slongwhite's intensely personal revelations will lead you to deeper meaning in it and insight in your own life. Gathering makes every facet of living a cause for reflection and celebration.
