A freckled apple on a china plate. A chipped white pitcher. A blue cloth draped in a sensuous swirl. Like a still-life painting, a woman's soul longs for tranquillity in the midst of a busy world. Mary Jenson draws on the language of still-life art to help women explore their deep desire for serenity. She explores six elements-simplicity, ordinariness, passion, light and shadow, space, and composition-to discern how God paints both the broad strokes and the small details of our lives. Mary's gentle wisdom, quotes from classic and contemporary literature, and well-chosen art throughout make this a satisfyingly beautiful book to read and to treasure.
