Writing in the beautiful, funny, honest narrative style that moved and inspired readers of her first book, Here If You Need Me, Kate Braestrup explains what prayer is and the many ways we can pray.

This was a lovely blend of memoir and spirituality without too much religion (always nice since the author is a UU minister). It made me think about prayer in a different way than I always have, and it’s given me some thoughts to create something new. ( )

Overall, I enjoyed this book; however, I found some chapters wandered around too much and I lost track of what the author was trying to say. That said, there were several thoughtful and meaningful sections, mainly at the beginning, and, of course, a wonderful collection of the prayers she discusses at the end of the book. ( )
