A quirky view from the pew!
About this Book:
Can a swear be a prayer? The Crabby Mystic has the answer! With a unique voice, Sr. Mary Lea makes prayer approachable for both those new to prayer and veterans. She directly approaches the pray-er with practical advice, but cautions the reader that "it is not an instructional course on prayer, but rather a taster on prayer, a place to get your feet wet. It could also be called a starter kit although it has no parts, no how-to directions, just a random set of suggestions on prayer."
The Crabby Mystic makes you laugh with chapter headings like "Bargain Basement Prayer" and "Hard Little Pew, I Love You!" Even as you chuckle at her wit, she gives recommendations that will help the beginning or struggling pray-er start communicating with God more readily.
Whether you have never prayed before or want to become a better pray-er, Sr. Mary Lea will guide you towards a fulfilling prayer life. Let Prayer and You nudge you towards a deeper and more personal relationship with God.
