Based on newspaper columns written by the author between 1980 and 1985, this compilation of personal reflections brings to the reader a fresh and open perspective on those days and times. Incredibly timely, this book offers inspiration, encouragement, and the recognition of the beauty and wonder of ordinary, everyday life. From celebrating high school graduations to ruing the deterioration of good manners, from cherishing friendships to looking honestly at both the joys and difficulties of parenting, Linda’s eye and voice are uniquely hers as a woman of faith, inviting the reader in with both common sense about and delight in everyday living.
