Book Review: Learning to Be

Learning to Be: Finding Your Center After the Bottom Falls Out by Juanita Campbell Rasmus is the true story of the journey from depression to a life-giving way of living. Part memoir and part devotional guide, Rasmus shares hard-learned truths from what she calls the “homeschool of God” about how to care for oneself and know the unconditional and limitless love of God. She brings her readers along on her journey from doing to being through reflections inspired by daily events and Bible stories. She offers guided instruction for spiritual practices that help support a reshaping of the framework for a lifestyle that allows for more presence and grace.

If you’re someone steeped in the Christian tradition and interested in spiritual practices, then you’ll find this book to be a wonderful window into a new way of living that, in Rasmus’ words, is “grounded in the ground of all being.”
