If you only read/buy/borrow ONE book this year, make it Answered Prayers; Love Letters From the Divine, by Julia Cameron (ISBN: 1585423513).
Don't feel like you have oodles of spare time to read? Fear not - This small book is written in a series of very short "letters" - half of one page, and half of the next. Pick up the book and open it to any page and start reading, then flip through a couple of other pages, and you'll see what I mean.
Answered Prayers is uplifting, loving, inspiring, and comforting.
Answered Prayers is NOT fire and brimstone.
I recommend this book to EVERYONE - it's not "religious" per se, and it's non-denominational - it's more of a personal conversation between you and the Divine, whatever you believe the Divine to be.
