Publisher's Summary

Cold Tangerines is a collection of stories that celebrate the extraordinary moments hidden in our everyday lives. It is about God, and about life, and about the thousands of daily ways in which an awareness of God changes and infuses everything. It is about spiritual life, and about all the things that we have called nonspiritual life that might be spiritual after all. It is the snapshots of a young woman making peace with herself and her life, and trying to craft a life that captures the energy and exuberance we long for in the midst of the fear and regret and envy we all carry with us. It is both a voice of challenge and song of comfort, calling us upward to the best possible life, and giving us room To breathe, to rest, to break down and break through. Cold Tangerines offers bright and varied glimpses of hope and redemption, in and among the heartbreak And boredom and broken glass.

    "Lovely collection of storeis"

    This heartwarming collection of personal stories chronicles the authors personal struggles as a woman, a friend, a sister/daughter/mother, and just as a human being.

    While I wouldn't call this a self-help book it is definitely inspiring. Time and time again I found myself re-examining similar experiences from my own life and finding places I could have been more kind or more generous and often with myself as well.

    "Real life at it's best..."

    Every female should read this. The author let's us into her life and shares good and bad, fears and triumphs, and shows us how real life looks. Shauna's personal experiences, told with wit and humor, show us how to learn to really live the life that we were made for.

    "This book uplifts my day :)"

    I'm so grateful for the words in this book that are a reminder that the ordinary things are actually colorful and magnificent. It gave me perspective when I would wake up on a cloudy day and lose myself to the maelstrom of negativity. It was an absolute blessing!
