    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Gifts of Imperfection to be better than the print version?

    Brene Brown is one of my favorite female authors. Her books are insightful and hearing the ideas outloud just brings them home all the more.


    What other book might you compare The Gifts of Imperfection to and why?

    Pema Chodron's books are similiar in that they talk about leaning into life's vulnerablities and uncertainties.

  • The Beekeeper's Apprentice, or On the Segregation of the Queen: Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes, Book 1

    In 1915, Sherlock Holmes is retired and quietly engaged in the study of honeybees when a young woman literally stumbles into him on the Sussex Downs. Fifteen years old, gawky, egotistical, and recently orphaned, the young Mary Russell displays an intellect to impress even Sherlock Holmes - and match him wit for wit. Under his reluctant tutelage, this very modern 20th-century woman proves a deft protégée and a fitting partner for the Victorian detective.

    This was my first real foray into the world of Sherlock Holmes and I loved it. The narrator was great.

  • Can You Drink the Cup?

    Nouwen uses the cup as a metaphor to articulate the basic postures of the spiritual life: holding, lifting and drinking. The cup is a powerful image in our human experience. We use cups in our celebrations of a variety of events. Nouwen reminds us that we also use the cup as a symbolic vessel—for sorrow, joy, blessings, salvation.

    I love listening to Henri's words... Even though it is not his voice, his writing style is so conversational, it is like sitting a room with him talking just to you.
