Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith by Anne Lamott


Leslie Mylius
Student, BA

In this book Lamott exposes her vulnerability while demonstrating her inner strength and resilience as she develops her spirituality during her recovery from alcoholism; all the while finding ways to raise her son as a single mother, to love and care for her elderly parents, and to create a strong community of friends, neighbors and family.

Lamott’s writing is inspiring. She lets us witness her doubts and insecurities, and eventual return to grace after taking on each of life’s challenges with cutting wit, humility, and a strong sense of faith.
