Help, Thanks, Wow
by Anne Lamott
This book examines the three simple prayers essential to coming through tough times, difficult days and the hardships of daily life. It is these three prayers – asking for assistance from a higher power, appreciating what we have that is good, and feeling awe at the world around us – that can get us through the day and can show us the way forward.

Dear Mrs. Noah: Letters to the Unnamed Women of the Bible
by Roberta Damon
Roberta will come and teach her brand new book!
This book looks at the stories of unnamed women in the Bible and masterfully reminds us that they weren’t just characters in a story, but real women who struggled with real fears and problems. She gives them a name and a voice that speaks to our own struggles and hopes.
