about

Cold Tangerines-now available in softcover- is a collection of stories that celebrate the extraordinary moments hidden in your everyday life. It is about God, and about life, and about the thousands of daily ways in which an awareness of God changes and infuses everything. It is about spiritual life, and about all the things that are called nonspiritual life that might be spiritual after all. It is the snapshots of a young woman making peace with herself and trying to craft a life that captures the energy and exuberance we all long for in the midst of the fear and regret and envy we all carry with us. It is both a voice of challenge and song of comfort, calling you upward to the best possible life, and giving you room to breathe, to rest, to break down, and break through. Cold Tangerines offers bright and varied glimpses of hope and redemption, in and among the heartbreak and boredom and broken glass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing I didn 't know what expect when I chose this book, but what I got was a wonderful surprise full of personal truths that I felt priveledged to be privy to; prose so simple yet so poetic; metaphors that effortlesy took me right to where Shauna Niequist wanted me - in her soul and her senses that were somehow intertwined with my own. It gave me glimpses into my own heart and relationship with God and prayer, and comfort in what I saw. And it reminded me that the choices I made along my path to focus on the joy in the everyday pleasures God provides and to be able to help others do the same were exactly the ones I was meant to make. Reading this felt like sharing a cup of coffee with a good friend, each of us curled up on opposite ends of the sofa, our feet covered by the same blanket, sharing our life stories and thanking God for them. Thank you Shauna for sharing your life stories and a cup of coffee with me.
