Three simple prayers to get you through tough times, everyday struggles, and the hard work of ordinary life. Readers of all ages have followed and cherished Anne Lamott's funny and perceptive writing about her own faith and prayer. And in Help, Thanks, Wow, she has coalesced everything she's learned about prayer into these simple transformative truths. It is these three prayers - asking for assistance, appreciating the good we witness, and feeling awe at the world - that can get us through the day and show us the way forward. In Help, Thanks, Wow, Lamott recounts how she came to these insights, explains what they have meant to her over the years and how they have helped, and explores how others have embraced these same ideas. Insightful and honest as only Anne Lamott can be, Help, Thanks, Wow is a book that new Lamott readers will love and longtime Lamott fans will treasure.
