Must-read for anyone struggling with a dark night of the soul
When We Were On Fire, Addie Zierman’s first book, was possibly the best Christian memoir I’ve ever read, so I had high hopes for her second book, and I wasn’t disappointed. How can you believe in God when you can’t feel God anymore, when your faith has gone dark? This is the question Addie wrestles with, as she takes a 3,000-mile road-trip down to Florida to escape the Minnesotan winter. (With two children in the car under the age of five).
Addie is the master of spiritual memoir, and she not only captures the relentlessness of winter and mothering two small children, but the loss of childhood faith, and the search for more. This is a must-read for anyone struggling with a dark night of the soul, or anyone feeling the weariness of parenthood. Funny, poignant, beautiful – I highly recommend it.
