Heroes: June 10
Anne Lamott is one of my heroes.
I love how free and honest her writing voice is, she is an inspiration. As I struggled with my Christian faith she was one of the first writers and persons with whom I could finally identify with! She helped me to see that I did not have to fit in with the religious right but I could find ways to love them and accept them as I wanted to be loved and accepted as a Christian.
Lamott is witty, honest, and writes beautifully. I prefer her non-fiction over her fiction, perhaps it's that I enjoy reading someone with whom I can so closely relate.
PS. She will be speaking and signing books along with other faith writers on Oct. 10th in St. Paul, MN! See the previous post for a bit more info!
Holy One, thank you for the life, heart, and writings of Anne Lamott--God bless her!
