Mary DeMuth's Thin Places
Mary DeMuth’s Thin Places is the most honest Christian book I’ve read. Mary takes you on her introspective journey from childhood abuse to the Christian Mom and wife she is today. Woven into this memoir tapestry is Mary’s struggle to make sense of her world and willingness to let God heal her from the inside out. She writes about her thin places in such a colorful and conversational manner that you are transported along with her on the journey. Thin places are those times when the distance between Heaven and Earth is made thin—God is especially present. I believe everyone, no matter their faith, will appreciate her brave and honest look at how a woman can turn trials to triumph, overcome her past to be the parent she never had.
