Finding Spiritual Whitespace (Book Review)

Finding Spiritual Whitespace

Disclosure:  I received a copy of this book, at no cost to me, in exchange for an honest review.  This post is part of the  “Finding Spiritual Whitespace Blog Tour” which I am a part of, along with a group of soulful, journeying kindreds.

I think this is the second time ever that I'm writing a book review without finishing the book.  The last time was for a bad reason, but this one is definitely good.  Author Bonnie Gray has encouraged reviewers to take our time and absorb the book, rather than rushing through it.  However, I promised my review for this week, so here I am.


I've been writing blog posts based on Finding Spiritual Whitespace for a few weeks now.  Click through to read my book intro, Space to BreatheWallpapering Over the Hurt, and Get Over It Already.  The book and its concepts have inspired me to write more personal posts than ever as it leads me to introspection.

I have only read through Part I (Chapter 7) so far, because I have been taking the time to follow through on that introspection.  For that reason, the posts I've linked above--which contain passages from Finding Spiritual Whitespace as well as what it's brought out in me--are probably better reviews than what I can write in a traditional book review.

I do recommend this book, with the caveat that it's likely to challenge you to look at memories and emotions that you may have been burying for a long time.

Bonnie Gray is the writer behind Faith Barista.com who wrote a book about her inspiring, heart-breaking journey to find rest, which garnered Publisher’s Weekly starred review. I’m taking the journey to find rest through this guidebook and invite you to read it too.  You can get a copy HERE.

Just finished reading the book and going to go back and read it again . . . taking it really slow to reflect deeply on the areas that i've "papered" over. . .

Like you, I am recommending this book to all because I believe each of us have the need to be drawn to our spiritual whitespaces

Thank you, Melissa. I took it slowly, too, but I'm thinking of reading it again. I'm still processing a lot from it.

I just posted, but I'm not certain it went through... Anyway, thank you, Melissa. I'm on that journey of retrospection with you.
