Firstlight: The Early Inspirational Writings

by Sue Monk Kidd

© 2006

Sue Monk Kidd, a well-respected author of novels and spiritual memoirs, was asked by Guideposts to collect her early inspirational writings into one volume. The stories and essays in this book are the result of that request. They are gathered around thirteen spiritual motifs (Awareness, Compassion, Solitude…) and include reflections on the author’s many roles as mother, daughter, wife, nurse, author. These recollections include her childhood, her marriage, her year in Africa, and many other memories of ordinary moments which compile her spiritual journey. Firstlight became a bridge for the author to return to her early writings – a gift of reunion.
