Q: Where did the material that became A Book of Simple
A: That’s a good question. The truth is, I never set
out to write this book. In fact, I never set out to write prayers at
all. But there was a span of time when I didn’t find it easy to pray,
but, when I went to write one of the things I had to write, a prayer would
come. I could not begin whatever project was before me until I cleared my
mind of the prayer that was tumbling from my heart onto the page. In the
beginning, I kept them in a small pocket-sized notebook, but soon the notebook
was full and the prayers kept pouring out.
Q: How long did this period of prolific prayer journaling
A: This book contains snapshots of my story that unfolded
over a year or two. Up to that time, I had not had a similar experience,
and I haven’t since.
