This blog contains my thoughts and feelings only. It IS titled, "The Daily Life of Carol: My Thoughts, Rants & Raves." They do not represent those of anyone else. While I still can't imagine how my little blog is making the rounds locally, it is mine and mine only. If you are going to be offended or feel it necessary to whine or complain to those completely unassociated to me and my blog, stop reading and find something else to do with your time.

Book Review: A Year of Living Prayerfully by Jared Brock

I just finished reading and rereading A Year of Living Prayerfully: How a Curious Traveler Met the Pope, Walked on Coals, Danced with Rabbis, and Revived His Prayer Life by Jared Brock. He's an amusing storyteller so his book was fun and interesting. My prayer life before Jared's book was dismal. He has truly inspired me. Whether you pray or not, Jared's book is entertaining as he explores Judeo-Christian prayer traditions around the world. I highly recommend his book.

From, here are a few of Jared's adventures:
* Dances with Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn;
* Discovers the 330-year-old home of Brother Lawrence;
* Burns his clothes at the end of the Camino de Santiago;
* Attends the world's largest church in Seoul;
* Visits Westboro Baptist Church;
* Tries to stay out of trouble in North Korea;
* Attempts fire walking (with only minor burns).
