Life has a way of being so much harder than we expect, and we often find ourselves stumbling awkwardly in the darkness. But light is central to both our physical and spiritual existence, and Pat Livingston helps us find it. She helps us reframe our responses to difficulty and darkness in positive ways, blending thoughtful insights with practical suggestions. Livingston helps us embrace life's imperfection, and shares poignant stories of family and friends, joy and heartbreak. And with her signature good cheer, she invites us to open our hearts and minds to the light of kindness, laughter, mercy, and gratitude.


"A nourishing, spiritual tonic."

"Pat Livingston has shared her exceptional way of embracing life and its mysteries—with eyes wide open, always letting in the light. She shows, so convincingly, it is within our own power to transform darkness and emerge into light. Her book is a nourishing, spiritual tonic."

Antoinette Bosco, Author of One Day He Beckoned, One Woman's Story of the Difference Jesus Made

"A gentle invitation."

"Pat Livingston's book calls us, in the words of her son, to 'make a peace treaty with your heart and soul.' It is a gentle invitation to remember we are lovable and loved. Much more than chicken soup, it is hot fudge for the soul!"

Kathleen Chesto, Author ofKnow Me, Hold Me, Sing to Me: What My Grandchild Taught Me About God. 2/2/06

"A taste of 'quantum spirituality!'"

"In her first two books, Pat Livingston established herself as a master storyteller with a deep understanding of everyday spirituality. Here, she breaks new ground. She crafts some fascinating insights into contemporary scientific discoveries that uncover even deeper meaning for Christian living—a taste of 'quantum spirituality!'"

Eugene F. Lauer, Director, National Pastoral Life Center

"Another spiritual gem."

"Pat Livingston has produced another spiritual gem. Her book, written in rapid-fire, fast-paced, engaging style together with the use of moving stories, frequent illustrations and practical suggestions will help everyone pray better and enjoy more a light-filled life."
