Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
Stretching Lessons, the final volume of Sue Bender's Plain and Simple trilogy, is written with all the clarity, honesty, and insight that made Plain and Simple a phenomenal New York Times bestseller. Stretching Lessons is a book about the risks we take to grow spiritually and the ways we can stretch ourselves to grow beyond our self-imposed limitations.
In Plain and Simple Sue Bender shared the wisdom she learned living with the Amish. With Everyday Sacred she shared her stories about finding the sacred in everyday life and living peacefully and simply in our hectic world. Now, in Stretching Lessons, her journey grows even more intimate. With her graceful storytelling and charming illustrations, Sue looks inward to discover the spirit within each of us that whispers to be heard. By listening to the wisdom of the body, she follows the urgent call we all have to become as big in spirit as we truly are. Using the metaphor of stretching to overcome our doubts and the restricted visions of our own possibilities, this book -- her most profound work to date -- offers a new way for us to stretch to our fullest spiritual self.
Sue Bender remains a pioneer on the path of the spirit, and Stretching Lessons offers some of her most rigorous and personal explorations. Through Sue's humble and honest grappling with her own frailties and struggles, we discover the larger life lessons that help us realize the potential that lies within us.
And I am still struggling...
I'm sixty-six years old and I want to learn about ease.Consider this an in-and-out book, one that can be opened to any page, where readers will find brief one-to-three-page essays about stretching into one's biggest self, biggest dream, biggest life. Although it's billed as a memoir, don't expect a tightly woven literary narrative. Even so, the airy format with plenty of white space manages to convey a strong sense of Bender's life and the common ground we all find in her experiences. --Gail Hudson
