    I d read a few good reviews for Here If You Need Me, by Kate Braestrup, but was a little put off by the quasi religious theme Very quasi, as it turns out She s a Chaplain for the Maine Warden Service the Maine equivalent of a cross between a Parks Ranger and a Game Warden She s married and has six kids and has a very funny attitude about religion, what she describes as the God thing Anyway, finally broke down and bought it late yesterday afternoon and within the first two chapters it I d read a few good reviews for Here If You Need Me, by Kate Braestrup, but was a little put off by the quasi religious theme Very quasi, as it turns out She s a Chaplain for the Maine Warden Service the Maine equivalent of a cross between a Parks Ranger and a Game Warden She s married...

    This book is sneaky at first, I thought that it started slow though with a compellingly tragic story whose point was unclear but something about it touched me and I kept reading I can now say that I am incredibly thankful for having done so, as this book is one of the most simple, honest, engaging and thought provoking that I have read in some time.Kate Braestrup does not claim to be an expert in fact, it s in the sharing of her flawed humanity that she is so compelling but she is so c This book is sneaky at first, I thought that it s...

    I thought this book was pretty full of nothing On the one hand, anyone is free to write a book, I just wish there was aselective way to know what books are going to have meat I listened to the unabridged audio version so I heard how she wanted to tell the story, which in this case, I think made it worse because there isn t much room for imagination Here are my two takes The Bad She s a minister but seems to be a contradicting one She says she doesn t believe in heaven, that you just d I thought this book was pretty full of nothing On the one hand, anyone is free to write a book, I just wish there was aselective way to know what books are going to have meat I listened to the unabridged audio version so I heard how she wanted to tell the story, which in this case, I think made it worse because there isn t much room for imagination Here are my two takes The Bad She s a ...

    This book is quietly and unassumingly beautiful.In terms of Big Picture, it s a book about divinity and theology it s about the author s conviction that where the divine shows itself is in ordinary expressions of love between people in the casserole the neighbors bring over after a death in the family in the community that searches for a lost resident in the guy who scritches behind a lamb s ears and makes it bleat with happiness real guy, real lamb, all in Maine it s not an allegory.Bu This book is quietly and unassumingly beautiful.In t...

    Kate Braesrup is a Unitarian Universalist minister for the Maine Warden Service whose husband, a state trooper, was killed in a car accident The skeleton of this book is her journey from her husband s accident to minister through caring for the bereaved and caretakers of those lost or injured However, the meat of the book are her interpretations of spirituality, religion and her practice of it She does this with a light touch and with humor and I left the book feeling centered, grounded and r Kate Braesrup is a Unitarian Universalist minister for the Maine Warden Service whose husband, a state trooper, was killed in a car accident The skeleton of this book is her journey from her husband...

    This book was just fabulous It was fabulous I went and heard the author talk earlier this winter and enjoyed myself a bit, but felt a little skeptical about the quality of such a local book But everyone kept telling me how good it was So I checked it out from the library, read it and was amazed Prepare to cry in almost every chapter I love what she has to say about God and I love what she has to say about the doing of very hard work wit...
