Sue Monk Kidd is one of those authors whose books end too soon for me. Not because they are short but because reading them is like a deep conversation with a beloved friend.
When the book ends, I say goodbye reluctantly, knowing our next visit is a long way off and that I’ll miss her.
While I’m reading the book, gems keep popping out, phrases and paragraphs that resonate. The one below is from The Dance of the Dissident Daughter: A Woman’s Journey from Christian Tradition to the Sacred Feminine
It perfectly encapsulates what Catching Courage is about, the stories that “give us hope, a little guidance, and a lot of bravery.”
“When we start on this journey, we discover a couple of things right away. First, the way is largely uncharted, and second, we are all we’ve got. If women don’t tell our stories and utter our truths in order to chart ways into sacred feminine experience, who will? It is stories women need. Stories give us hope, a little guidance, and a lot of bravery.” ~ Sue Monk Kidd, The Dance of the Dissident Daughter
