The latest book to land on my nightstand (and on my prayer chair, and on my living room end table) is a new publication from Word on Fire. I saw the ad pop up on my Facebook feed a few weeks ago and, although I rarely click on ads, I followed this particular rabbit trail. Am I ever happy that I did!
“With All Her Mind: A Call to the Intellectual Life,” is a collection of thought-provoking essays from women in all stages and vocations of life. In her own way, each author expresses the necessity for women to pursue truth, goodness and beauty by embracing their “feminine genius” (thank you St. John Paul II!) and developing their intellectual lives along with their spiritual lives. It’s philosophical AND practical and I couldn’t put it down. The writings of Tsh Oxenrider (an author I followed even before I reverted to the Catholic faith) and Jackie Francois Angel (I’m a new fan!) were especially meaningful to me. This book will surely get your juices flowing and encourage you to find your own unique path to “Love the Lord with all your mind.”
