Book announcement: “What I Learned From Jane”

Contributor: Mollie Player

Hello all! As David and I are expecting our new baby any day now, I just wanted to take it a bit easy and instead of writing a deep and thought-provoking story, quickly “plug” a deep and thought-provoking book instead! It’s called What I Learned From Jane, and it’s the true story of my first child’s short life after being born with severe brain damage . . . and what it meant to mine.

Here’s an excerpt:

“And I have no other explanation for how it feels to have given birth to a person and then spent a few days with them before letting them go other than that:

It feels like being a mother probably feels every day.

It felt like being a mother.”

Pray for me as I remember Jane in this time of expecting new life.

It’s spirituality for the rest of us.

Eckhart Tolle is awesome. So are Byron Katie and all those Buddhist monks we hear about. Why, then, doesn’t their advice immediately solve all our most pressing spiritual problems?

Why are their results so difficult to replicate?

You’re Getting Closer and The Power of Acceptance. Get them for an uplifting price on Amazon.
