People who are only nominally spiritual have relatively little trouble sensing some sort of Divine presence when looking up at a beautiful snow-capped mountain or looking around in a grand cathedral. But even deeply spiritual individuals would likely admit that finding God in the places and faces that define daily life can be a bit more challenging.

In Small Mercies, fifty-something Nancy Jo Sullivan reflects on her life to this point—which includes the death of one of her daughters and a painful divorce—and discovers with great joy that God has been, and continues to be, everywhere. From her grandmother’s not-so-tasty date cookies to a dog that seems bent on attacking her to a conversation with her daughter about the function of muscles, Sullivan gives readers—especially second-half-of-life women—every reason to expect God to show up in the most unexpected ways.

Ultimately, Small Mercies encourages us to stop "limiting" God to those rare moments where all seems sublime and perfect, and instead to seek out God's mercies in the ordinary, often imperfect moments that shape our everyday lives.

Review:

"Filled with insight for anyone facing inevitable changes."
--OSV Newsweekly


"This book is not annoyingly uplifting, nor is it a complete downer. It has humor, realism, and God. Sullivan’s awareness of God’s “small mercies” keeps her going and it will keep you reading."
--The Good News, Diocese of Kalamazoo


"Sullivan's writing style is so smooth, comfortable and inviting for readers of all ages. Her stories are engaging and endearing. I truly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to others, especially mothers and daughters. You can read more of her work at CatholicMom.com as well. I hope that others will have the courage to live their lives as she does, seeking God in everyday life."
--FaithFilledMom.com


"This sliver of a book is a pearl."
--Sky Sanchez-Fischer, San Francisco Book Review

 "God is easy to spot in a breathtaking vista, but Sullivan chooses the sweet and sour of the mundane to show the deliciousness of the divine in... [her] gem of a book, Small Mercies: Glimpses of God in Everyday Life."
-- Suzette Standring, Suzette's Spiritual Cafe

“A hallowed work of one woman’s journey as she draws intimately close to God through the ups and downs of daily life.”
- Endow
