began this remarkable book as a series of reminders to herself
to slow down.
Now, in the warm
voice of a treasured friend, she shows us how, even in the midst
of a busy, stress-filled world, we can pare down our schedules
and tune into a gentler rhythm.
stories and experiences taken from her own life, she offers
simple suggestions for clearing a space for silence and
contemplation, wonder and spiritual renewal, and for turning our
homes into havens where peace and creativity can flourish, and
where we feed not only our children's bodies and intellects but
their souls as well.
