Love & Salt: A Spiritual Friendship Shared in Letters Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Amy Andrews and Jessica Mesman Griffith met in a creative writing class in graduate school, they both confessed to writing about God. They bonded one night while reading the Book of Ruth and came to truly understand the unlikely friendship of Ruth and Naomi. In these two Old Testament women, they witnessed a beautiful spiritual friendship and a way of walking with one another toward God.

But how could they travel this path together when they would be separated by distance and time and leading busy lives as they established marriages and careers? They decided to write letters to each other—at first, for each day of Lent, but those days extended into years. Their letters became a memoir in real time and reveal deeply personal and profound accounts of conversion, motherhood, and crushing tragedy; through it all, their faith and friendship sustained them.

Told through the timeless medium of letters—in prose that is raw and intimate, humorous and poetic—Love & Salt is at its core the emotional struggle of how one spiritual friendship is formed and tested in tragedy, tempered and proven in hope.

Synopsis:

2016: A Book of Grace-Filled Days provides a concise and structured way to listen to God’s voice every day of the year.

Synopsis:

There are times we may feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace of our lives; and when it comes time to reflect upon our day in meditation and prayer, we may be unable to concentrate. Finding inspiration and receiving grace each day is important to a prayerful life, and 2016: A Book of Grace-Filled Days provides a concise and structured way to listen to God’s voice every day of the year.

2016: A Book of Grace-Filled Days offers readers an approach to Scripture and personal meditation that opens up a window of grace every day of the year:

  • Lectionary-based Scripture readings are matched with daily meditations
  • Page-a-day calendar format begins with Advent 2015 and runs through the end of calendar year 2016
  • Notes major feast days, solemnities, and holidays
  • Available in English and Spanish editions
Prayer doesn’t always have to take a lot of time for us to grow in faith daily—we can spend a few quiet moments with God and be united with our church community in prayer through the lectionary-based meditations in 2016: A book of Grace-Filled Days. Make every day a grace-filled day!

Synopsis:

Love & Salt portrays friendship as women have always known it—as something serious, sacred, and redemptive—and tells the story of a spiritual friendship between two women, based on their shared exploration of God. When Amy Andrews and Jessica Mesman Griffith met in a creative writing workshop at graduate school, they both confessed to writing about God. They became fast friends.

But how could they travel this path together, when they would be separated by distance and time, and leading busy lives as they established marriages and careers? They decided on writing letters to each other—at first, for each day of Lent, but those days extended into years. Their letters became a memoir in real time, revealing deeply personal and profound accounts of conversion, motherhood, and crushing tragedy. 

Told through the timeless medium of letters, Love & Salt is at its core the story of how one special friendship is formed, tested, and ultimately strengthened—and how God is both the source and summit of that relationship.
