      The 8th Station’s prayer was just what I needed.

      Wow. 😳 Wow. 🙌 WOW. 🔥💥💫

      Poetic and beautiful, authentic and wrenching, this book examines being real with yourself and opening yourself to all that God has for you. One of my favorite reads...ever. I’m going to be getting a paper copy of it too, because I need to flip back through and revisit the wisdom and insight. Truly, a wow read. @hallielord, you’re my hero now. @jenniferfulwiler, thanks for the rec, when you said @joefulwiler read it in one sitting.

      Because why not?

      I’ve been listening to this, in part because I was between classics and my brother mentioned that this is his favorite book. My brother is no reading slouch, and he’s told me this before, but I’ve always sort of looked down my nose at it and thought 🙄🙃 that maybe his taste was questionable.

      Consider me corrected. I’m now a fan. I@ going to need to do more than just borrow this from the library because listening was so delightful and yet I want to see the wonderificness of the words for myself.

      Am I right or am I left?

      If you haven’t read this, go do yourself a favor. Oh my goodness, but we all need some of this!

      As for me and my house, we shall encourage the stress baking and embrace the hardship of staying stocked up on flour and butter and sugar.
