Description

  • Great product!
  • The old Quaker adage, "Let your life speak," spoke to author Parker J. Palmer when he was in his early 30s. It summoned
    him to a higher purpose, so he decided that henceforth he would live a nobler life. "I lined up the most elevated ideals
    I could find and set out to achieve them," he writes. "The results were rarely admirable, often laughable, and sometimes
    grotesque.... I had simply found a 'noble' way of living a life that was not my own, a life spent imitating heroes
    instead of listening to my heart."

    Thirty years later, Palmer now understands that learning to let his life speak means "living the life that wants to
    live in me." It involves creating the kind of quiet, trusting conditions that allow a soul to speak its truth. It also
    means tuning out the noisy preconceived ideas about what a vocation should and shouldn't be so that we can better hear
    the call of our wild souls. There are no how-to formulas in this extremely unpretentious and well-written book, just
    fireside wisdom from an elder who is willing to share his mistakes and stories as he learned to live a life worth
    speaking about. --Gail Hudson
