‘Finding Spiritual Whitespace’– not what I expected


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. To learn more and join us, CLICK HERE!  

“How many of us find ourselves running on empty with no time for rest, no time for ourselves, no time for God?”  This question from the back cover of “Finding Spiritual Whitespace” by Bonnie Gray intrigued me enough to read it.  But the book was not what I was expecting.   Primarily a vehicle for her story, though fascinating, was not what most people are looking for in a book about finding relief from the fast pace of our culture today.  Her diagnosis of PTSD and her rehashing of her father’s betrayal and a search for peace of mind filled the majority of the book.

If you are only seeking answers to the above question and are not suffering from panic attacks stemming from PTSD, you only need to read Part 6, “The Whitespace Challenge”.  There are some helpful exercises at the conclusion of the previous chapters you may be interested in checking out as well.  The book was an okay read.  She does have a fascinating way of telling her story; however, I believe that she overdid it for the purposes of writing the book.
