"Beautiful," Mary Sholl said in response to my blog "On the face of great injustice."
"Thank you, Mary," I responded.
"And I thank YOU!" she said.
"Why?" I said.
"Because you shared your story and, when shared with others who are going through challenges, there is the potential of prompting great good by causing a shift in the way said persons have been thinking and feeling, and I have already forwarded what you have written. I believe the potential for this person's healing will be better aided in reading what you have written."

"I've just started 'God, You’re Driving Me Bananas' last night and every page had something that either made me laugh or cry. I love the idea of a personal relationship and dialogue with a funny, irreverent and loving God! It’s so different from my Catholic upbringing .
Your books are so wonderful, brave, funny and brilliant and I feel like each one is a gift."

"It's 2 a.m. here in the dark. The only light is from my phone while reading the 120 pages. I'm forever grateful for every word in the letter you read to your mother. The entire 120 pages I consider answered prayer for me. Thank you for your inner work and writings."
