I always thought anchorite monks – those gaunt men who lived alone in desert caves or atop stone pillars – had it easy. Sainthood would we a snap if only I didn’t have to deal with people – lazy people, angry people, needy people. But then again, I myself can be all those things – lazy, angry, needy – and everywhere I go, there I am. That’s where Marnie Spencelayh’s book is so good. It’s about thriving in a world that spins and spins, about having a deep soul no matter what pressures bear down on us. Mostly, thankfully, it’s about being fully alive in spite of what others do, and – indeed – being fully alive for the sake of those others. If you wish to flourish in a busy crowded world, and living in a cave isn’t an option, I heartily recommend Marnie’s book.

On the subject of relationships, Marnie Spencelayh’s book Flourish in a World of People is like the Cole’s Notes. Spencelayh takes relationship lessons she has learned from her experiences as a student, teacher, principal, founder of two independent schools, wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, friend, and woman of faith, and shows us how to apply them to our own lives. Using anecdotes from her life, she illustrates the importance of human interaction mainstays like listening, communicating, having a positive attitude, knowing when to say no, being thankful, forgiving, laughing, and more.
