Thin Places, a memoir
By
Mary E. DeMuth


I suspect if you took a survey of 10, 100, even 1,000 people, you would not find one person who would answer the questions openly and honestly. Sadly, this is true for most Christians. We live behind a façade, some thicker than a brick wall, and not even our closest family members and friends know the real person behind that façade.


This is not the case in Thin Places, a memoir. Mary DeMuth has exposed her life and bared her soul to the world. She has done so with dignity and grace.


Here is the back cover synopsis:


“Thin places are snatches of holy ground, tucked into the corners of our
world, where we might just catch a glimpse of eternity. They are ‘aha’
moments, the beautiful realizations.”

In her moving spiritual memoir, Mary DeMuth traces the winding path of
thin places in her life, places where she experienced longing and healing
more intensely than before. Mary’s story invites you to a deeper under-
standing of your own story. She calls you to discover new ways to look
for God in the past so that you might experience Him more profoundly in
the present…A God ready to break through any ordinary day or extra-
ordinary pain and offer you a glimpse of eternity.

Although one may not be able to identify with Mary’s childhood, there is much wisdom to be gained from reading this book. Thin Places is a poignant, moving story that will touch your heart and change your life.

I have a copy of Thin Places, a memoir to be given away in a drawing. Please leave your email address in the comment section if you wish to be included in the drawing. The drawing will be held on Friday, February 19.


Maranatha!

Edwina:
Great review. I have a copy of Thin Places. So, I won't be participating in your drawing.

You are right when you say people don't answer questions honestly. They seem to be afraid of what others will think.

Wow! Edwina, this is powerful, just think to look back in the past so that we might eperience God more profoundly in the present. We can all learned why things has happen in the past to put us where we are today. If I don't get the drawing I will be getting the book.
Thanks,
Jeanette
