Using Beauty and Her Beast to Introduce the Human Shadow by Kay Newell Plumb
Using Beauty and Her Beast to Introduce the Human Shadow

tmpting, September 1, 2011

The quote on the back of this book cover is what hooked me. "A human being simply cannot live a fairy tale life. Consider yourself warned." The illustrator of this book is as integral to the story as the writer. The result of their collaboration is an easy-to-read, & re-read, introduction to what is usually a very complicated, academic subject.

Taming Your Gremlin by Richard David Carson
Taming Your Gremlin

What a playful way to approach a serious subject! And, that's point, actually. Sometimes, the only approach is a playful one. Richard Carson leads by example, showing the way, in this delightful book. A great gift book idea. I mean, who do you know who doesn't have a gremlin, or two?

Rhythm of Compassion (00 Edition) by Gail Straub
Rhythm of Compassion (00 Edition)

tmpting, September 1, 2011

This is not a quick-read; this is a workbook. But, as the title suggests, it is written with the utmost compassion, and urges you to connect to yourself & your life's work with compassion as well. I find myself re-reading a chapter, here or there, throughout the book, every few months, since in the re-reading there is only more discovery. Of all the books that flow into & out of my house, this one is a "keeper."

Plain and Simple: A Journey to the Amish by Sue Bender
Plain and Simple: A Journey to the Amish

tmpting, September 1, 2011

I love quilts. What's not to love about something so warm & cozy, and beautiful, too? Just looking at the cover & reading the title told me that here was a book by a kindred spirit. Sue Bender succeeds in writing simply about her longing for, and her journey toward community; that sense of belonging we all crave. What better metaphor for community than the quilt; an assembly of small individual pieces of fabric into one, large, utilitarian whole?
