Ramblings from the Shower by Faye Bryant – A Book Review

Do you sing in the shower? I don’t because it would scare my dog who likes to lay on the floor and go to sleep to the sound of the water. It seems to relax him. Faye Bryant meditates and ponders in the shower(as I do) and it’s from her meditations that she was given the idea to write this book about various questions and subjects that Christians are confronted with everyday.  As you read the book you almost feel as if you are sitting across the kitchen table from Faye with a cup of coffee as the two of you share the questions and concerns you have in your spiritual journey. She writes about some of the challenges she’s had in life and she explains them in an upfront honest way.It hasn’t always been a “June Cleaver” life for her. There is something in this book we can all admit to trying to either ignore or cover up.  She talks about self-inflicted stress and letting others control our emotions and admitting our mistakes. Do we control the outcome or does God? She uses experience and wit and charm to put you at ease as you are confronted with things that you perhaps may be wearing a mask about. Hopefully by the end of the book you will be able to take the mask off some of these things in your life you have tried to gloss over and you will be a much more free and usable Christian. I recommend this book to any Christian no matter what their level of spirituality is. It contains straight, honest, gut-level conversations we all have with God. So put on your “God goggles” as she calls them and be revived and renewed. You can buy it at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

“I wrote these words like I would talk to the person who is sitting there reading. I simply shared the answers I got while seeking God. My hope to share with folks who need the answers, but haven’t ever looked for them.”  Faye Bryant

About Charmaine

I am a Christian woman seeking to truly "know" God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I love the Word of God and it's life changing power. I like reading, writing, and amateur gardening. My passion is working in women's ministry with emphasis on Bible Study. I believe discipleship is very important in our transformation process to become more Christlike.
