The quarantine time from March-July 2020 was rough in so many ways for all of us. I wish I had written this book before it hit us because I think the spiritual practices I write about will help us all in times of difficulty and stress, when we’re seeking to cope with change, trauma, sickness, and fear. Even if we’re well on our way to a vaccine and emerge from this pandemic soon, this book will still be highly relevant and helpful. After all, to be human is to face brokenness, shame, anxiety, and fear. Some of us encounter these things more often, but we all experience them one way or another. Since I finished the book in July, I’ve turned back to the manuscript time and again to remind myself to notice the unhealthy ways I cope when I’m feeling anxious and put into practice those disciplines that lead me to holy vulnerability and, thus, healing. Over the next few months, I’ll be sharing parts of the book so you know what I mean and can start putting these valuable practices to use even before the book even comes out!
