Without a doubt, this is one of the best spiritual books I've ever read. It is well written and although written a number of years ago now, is as relevant today as when it was written. Its message of living in, appreciating and discerning the presence of God in the present is as good as anything I've read by others, including Tolle and Dyer. If you are going through a difficult time, I suggest that this book could be a lifesaver.

I purchased the book on Amazon several years ago on the strong recommendation of a trusted friend. I read the first chapter almost immediately, but I just finished the book this morning. It is amazing.

If you're on a spiritual journey, this book can help chart that path. And again, if you are having a tough time, this book is likely to be particularly helpful.

I cannot recommend it more highly.

This book changed my life. Before I read this book, I didn't understand what being spiritual was, despite being raised as a Christian by devout parents. Berends has a fresh, original voice, which opens vistas, unlocking the spiritual in everyday experience.

A word of encouragement: the book builds slowly, so don't be impatient with the pace of the first chapters. It all comes together towards the end, and is well worth the wait.

If you want to know God better but cannot seem to, this is the book for you.
A good companion to Berends' other books, "Gently Lead" (my favorite) and "Whole Parent, Whole Child." I always learn something from her each time I read or re-read the books.
Love this book. 3rd time to order.
On a trip to D.C. fifteen years ago I saw the book in one on these round book holders that you can spin around with 20 or more books on it and it stopped on this one, a spiritual book that that seemed interesting. I read it in two days and have it as my special book when I get lost in my world.I want to say that after this book " What more needs to be said" and I honestly feel like that. This mother of two boys has a grasp on the ungraspable spirit which is freeing with no " Must dos or go this way or that or you'll lose " If I had to take one book to an deserted island I'd take " How to build a boat " but if I could take two this one would be it.Everytime I lay it down I feel ok and supported in not knowing what I'm supposed to do. And that is freeing. It's a loving book with no sentimentality I guarantee you.

This is another of the books in my library that I find myself thinking about, and coming back to, regularly. It's just good writing, to begin with, and offers many evocative phrases to help readers name their everyday experiences of the sacred... "Universal firsthand realizations of Oneness" is just such a phrase, regularly confirmed in my daily rounds. A very wise book.
