Finding Magic Book Excerpt:

The author, journalist, television reporter, and longtime Washington insider reflects on the spiritual quest that has brought deeper meaning to her life—and kept her grounded within the high-powered political world of Washington, D.C.’s elite—her renowned writing career, her celebrity marriage, and her legendary role as doyenne of the capital’s social scene. In this emotionally involving, illuminating memoir, the legendary Washington Post journalist, author, and "superstar hostess" (Vanity Fair) talks candidly about her life at the white-hot center of power and the surprising spiritual quest that has driven her for more than half a century. While working as a reporter, caring for a learning-disabled son with her husband, longtime Washington Post executive editor Benjamin Bradlee, reigning over the capital’s social scene, and remaining intimately connected with national politics, Sally Quinn yearned to understand what truly made the world—and her life—tick. After years of searching, most of which occurring in the secular capital of the world, she came to realize that the time she spent with friends and family—the evenings of shared hospitality and intimate fellowship—provided spiritual nourishment and that this theme has been woven into all the most important moments of her life. In this spiritual memoir, Quinn speaks frankly about her varied, provocative spiritual experiences—from her Southern family of Presbyterians and psychics, to voodoo lessons from her Baptist nanny, her trials as a hospitalized military kid in Japan as the Korean War begins, to her adventures as a Post reporter and columnist and her experience as one of the first female news anchors on national television; her battles with the Nixon administration, Watergate, and other scandals that have rocked the nation; her courtship and long marriage to one of the most authoritative figures in the media; her role as the capital’s most influential hostess; and her growing fascination with religious issues. This fascination led to her pioneering work in creating the most visited religious site on the web, OnFaith.co, where she reports on the unseen driving force of American life. Throughout this radiant, thoughtful, and surprisingly intimate memoir, Quinn reveals how "it’s all magic"—the many forms of what draws us together and provides meaning to all we do. Her roller coaster and irreverent but surprisingly spiritual story allows us to see how the infinite wonder of God and the values of meaningful conversation, experience, and community are available to us all. Finding Magic includes 16 pages of exclusive photographs.

Witch Please A Memoir Book Excerpt:

A touching and thought-provoking account of how a woman explored a spectrum of religions—ancient and new—and ended up, unexpectedly, becoming a bona fide witch—plus a celebration of modern Wicca and witchcraft, spell books, broomsticks, holiday recipes and recipes for the changing of the seasons, and much more. Misty Bell Stiers set out on a spiritual path to find a faith that worked for her, and accidentally became a witch. She knew the Bible well, and got to know the Torah and Koran. She studied Eastern philosophies, even the stories of the Egyptians and Greeks. Finally, after overcoming an immediate prejudice ("Um, no," she writes as her initial reaction), she found Wicca. Witch, Please reveals what makes the mysterious religion of Wicca so desirable for more than a million Americans. In her witty, direct, and heartfelt text, Misty explores spirituality, perseverance, and finding oneself. She shares what Wicca means to her and what defines her as a witch; what she uses her spell book, cauldron, and broomstick for; the significance of Wiccan holidays, many about new beginnings; the surprising history of Wicca; and what kinds of witches there are. She also shares how in her busy New York City life, as a mother and a creative director, her faith grounds and sustains her. Her uplifting, you-too-can-find-what-works-for-you voice speaks like a best friend: relatable, honest, and encouraging. This unusual and beautifully written memoir explores what it's like to be a modern-day witch, and how it's changed Misty's outlook on life. It's candid, but it's also threaded with magic and has a warming, lightheartededness to it. Bewitching original drawings by Misty are throughout, and Misty even shares ten original recipes for her Wiccan holiday treats (including the likes of her cinnamon rolls and roasted garlic rosemary bread, sprinkled with magic and seasoned with love, laughter, and healing).

Life s Last Fork in the Road Finding Your Heaven s Zip Code Book Excerpt:

We all have an earthly zip code, a place we live and call home. It ranges from 10001 for New Yorkers, to 90210 for those in Beverly Hills. But what about our life after death, the next phase for our souls - the afterlife, eternity and heaven? Yes, we seek guidance from the world's major religions, and the plethora of beliefs and perceptions from other sources, as to where our souls might end up. Yet, an astonishing one quarter of those who consider themselves part of a major religion still don't believe in heaven at all. "Life's Last Fork in the Road" offers a thought provoking scientific and theological overview of what heaven is and isn't among the major belief systems, but goes a step further, asking and offering answers to the question, "What zip code do you want on your tombstone?" Like your fingerprint, you want it to fit within your spiritual beliefs and comfort zone, not someone else's. If we can choose our zip code on earth, why not in heaven?

Witch Crafting Book Excerpt:

Phyllis Curott's first book, Book of Shadows, was an inspirational, spiritual memoir that chronicled her journey from Ivy League-educated, New York City attorney to Wiccan High Priestess. By inviting readers of all faiths to share in her own personal transformation, Phyllis debunked many of the myths surrounding Wicca and revealed it for what it really is: a spiritual movement whose tenets of Goddess worship and reverence for Nature were a great deal more accessible and familiar than she'd ever expected. In Witch Crafting, Phyllis digs deep into the practices and principles of Witchcraft to provide a comprehensive guidebook that anyone "novices and seasoned practitioners alike" can use to incorporate the beauty and power of Wicca into their own daily lives. Far from being just another mechanical spell book, Witch Crafting is the first book to offer readers not only the how-to of Witchcraft, but also the why-to, explaining the profound spiritual tenets behind Wiccan techniques. Filled with both traditional and innovative shamanic practices, Phyllis also provides an empowering new definition of magic and reexamines the ethics under which Witchcraft is practiced, offering a groundbreaking alternative to the Threefold Law. With enchanting stories from Curott's own experiences, Witch Crafting will also teach you how to: - Master the secret arts of effective spellcasting - Create sacred space and personal rituals - Perform divinations for spiritual insight and earthly success - Tap into the power of altered states, such as dreaming, meditation, prayer, and trance - Keep a magical journal and create your own Book of Shadows 'Keep a magical Rich with detailed advice for making magic, working with Nature, and finding the Divine within, as well as thought-provoking evaluations of this remarkable spirituality, Witch Crafting is the special volume that you've been searching for.

Holy Heathen Book Excerpt:

From divinely miserable to damned happy: A tale of reckoning, personal redemption, and love-over-dogma epiphany. As a child, Katherine North had a terrible secret: she couldn't feel Jesus in her heart. For the daughter of Christian missionaries, this was a problem indeed. She embarked on a most unexpected spiritual journey, one that transformed her from a terrified kid into a joyful heathen mystic. Holy Heathen is the origin story of trailblazing life coach Katherine North. From growing up as a "Third Culture Kid" in an evangelical mission in Japan to discovering feminism at Bryn Mawr College, she grapples to find the true meaning of belonging when she doesn't fit in anywhere. Katherine reckons with a lifetime of nightmares and odd spiritual encounters that lead her away from religion but toward a vocation helping others find healing. Her path spans continents, featuring an unlikely acting career in Japan on the stage, a stint in Chicago amongst a gang of mid-nineties Beat-era revivalists, marriage and divorce, church and sex, abortion and motherhood, healing and earthquakes, spiritual awakening-and finally, the call within her that she'd forever yearned for.

There s No Such Thing as Magic Blood Book Excerpt:

What would you do if the untouchable doctrines of your faith crumbled before your eyes, and could not be put back together? How would you recover? Would you be able to? If ideas you thought were essential were proven false, what type of identity would you be left with? With whom would you find fellowship? This is a spiritual memoir like no other in its genre...one that is full of nuance and counterpoint, as well as counter-narrative. The author recounts his emotional and spiritual journey, from being raised in a blue-collar Roman Catholic family, to getting sexually abused by a Scout leader as an adolescent, to following the Grateful Dead on their Spring Tour while in college and becoming a born-again evangelical after overdosing on LSD and joining his father in a decade-long trip through the charismatic jingoism of the Amway business. The desire to find his place in the world in the wake of an inauspicious beginning becomes a theme that deeply affects his marriage and family in profound and irreversible ways and involves many ill-advised decisions, including the gravitation to religious extremes within several fundamentalist Christian denominations, to joining the strange world of Messianic Judaism, to ultimately leaving Jesus and his magic blood behind altogether and converting to Judaism. Along the way, there is a counter-narrative of an intense drive towards the discovery of purpose and significance, even destiny, leading him through nearly every possible expression of Christianity, only to reject the unyielding and often illogical dogmas he had trusted in for so long. The author doesn't just tell his story, but provides solid, forthright arguments for his conclusions, doing so in a story format, flowing in and out of his forays into theological ideas and critiques without losing the pace the narrative, even weighing in on such massive topics as atheism vs. theism, the role of religion in society and the psychology of groupthink, as part of his unsympathetic treatment of religious extremist traditions and their impact on the cultural landscape, both in Christianity and even within Judaism. The takeaways from this account are subtle and are the marks of true wisdom - finding a sense of structure in that which is broken and lasting meaning in that which is far less than perfect. It is not just a story of losing one's religion, but of discovering one's true identity and humanity; of deconstructing one's lifelong paradigm without destroying the person beneath or even losing faith in an intelligent design. There's No Such Thing as Magic Blood will challenge everything you thought you knew about religious life in America and might leave you asking questions about your own involvement that you never thought you would ask.

How I Learned to Let God Find Me in the Good Times and the Bad Book Excerpt:

What do you do when God disappears off your radar just when you need him most and when the advice of even your wisest friends no longer helps? This was the question Jan Weel faced thirty-four years ago as a young Christian woman of thirty-five. Jan put many tough questions to her God. Over the next seventeen months, he answered each one of them in amazing and unexpected ways and taught her several tools she could use for her ongoing journey with him. Twelve years later, Jan faced a more prolonged, exacting trial. These same answers and tools enabled her not only to survive it but to thrive in its midst. She emerged even more alive, loving, anchored, joyful, free, strong, and faith filled. Jans questions may be yours too. This book helps Christians who are looking urgently to connect or reconnect with someone bigger than themselves in order to find solid, actionable answers to daunting life problems or challenges. You learn that the key to letting God find you in times of crisis is to learn how to enter directly into Gods presence and, once there, to experience firsthand for yourself his love God is hiding right smack in the middle of whatever situation you might be; experiencing, not somewhere outside of it God wants to find you far more than you want to find him there are specific steps you can take to let God find you there are amazing benefits that ensue.

He eventually became the centre of a worldwide network which allowed him to assemble the collections which became the core of the British Museum, the Natural History Museum, and the British Library. This is the first major biography of Sloane in 60 years. It explores not just the impact of an extraordinary man, but allows us a window onto the moment when the meaning of collections and collecting changed.
