    Story
    (101)

    Anne Lamott is known for her perceptive and funny writings about spirituality. Listeners of all ages have followed her faith journey through decades of trial and error (sometimes more error than Annie wanted), and in her new book, she has coalesced all she knows about prayer to three essentials: Help, Thanks, and Wow. It is these three prayers - asking for assistance from a higher power, appreciating all that we have and all that is good, and feeling awe at the beauty of the world around us - that can get us through the day and can show us the way forward.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I had a hard time considering God referred to as a woman. Even while I am one it seemed disrespectful to me. Leaving the gender out would have made me happier and the book better ... in my humble opinion.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It took me a while to get used to the tone of the author but after a while I did and I found myself coming back to listen to the rest of the story.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, I appreciated the deeper thought into prayer that this book provoked in me. I am not sure I agreed with everything but that is okay, it is provoking thought that I appreciated. As stated above, I really did not care that God was referred to as "She" or "Mother".
