I love "Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life : Living the Wisdom of the Tao" by Wayne Dyer. It is easy to understand and regardless of your religious beliefs, offers wonderful insights and guidance for a more peaceful existance.

Answer:

It is a book called "God's calling." it is a small book. it is written from a woman to her friend. taking notes as the Holy spirit fills her and tells her what to write. This book was a direct calling to me from God and I cannot find it anywhere. I know it was an old book that changed my life forever. God called me...Does anyone know of this book? I am sorry I cannot remember the author or anything as it was brought in to where I was from someone to let me just read it. God bless you all...he is calling too!

Answer:

Traveling Mercies is fantastic—any of Lamott's books are great.
I always go back to C.S. Lewis' "The Four Loves." A great reminder of how our hearts are called to love, and how we can rightly order love to put ourselves in line with God's will.

Answer:

_When Things Fall Apart_ by Pema Chodron. Close second: _Traveling Mercies_ by Anne Lammott. Both are excellent, accessible, and very honest.
