Title & author:
Placemaker: Cultivating Places of Comfort, Beauty, and Peace by Christie Purifoy
What it's about:
Part memoir, part love letter to trees, and all digging deep into the spiritual depth found in the places we live in and create and share, this book is a treasure.
Who it's for:
Anyone who has questioned the value of beauty and taking the time to create it. Anyone who lives in a home and seeks to understand the role homemaking has in our spiritual lives. Anyone who ponders the spiritual connotations of home and place and community.
What I liked:
Oh, just everything! Christie's writing is beautiful and poetic and reading her word is a feast. While I haven't had her exact journey in terms of states and places I can relate so deeply with her questions. So many of them have been on my heart too.
What I didn't:
None. I loved it! In fact, I am reading it a second time right now.
If you seek to understand how placemaking is holy work, this is the book for you.
