Found: A Book Review...


Micha Boyett's "Found" will be a treasure for fans of Ann Voskamp. Boyett's writing style is similar to Voskamp's. Readers will not want to read in one sitting, but in small nuggets. Giving the necessary time for digestion and contemplation.  

When reading Boyett, it can resemble walking through soup-thick fog but the treasure is there. It is important the reader doesn't give up.  Boyett describes her own spiritual walk as 'trudging through' but worth the effort even with the struggles of what she had always been taught. 

"It's not that I believe Benedictine spirituality will be some magical answer to the spiritual sludge I've been drudging through. It's just that all the answers of my evangelical past...read more Scriptures, pray longer, try harder, serve more people...have become heavy burdens in my life."

Boyett further shares a story,told to her by a fellow traveler, "The Benedictines more than any other people...insist there is time in each day for prayer, for work, for study and for play. I thought, I ought to remember that. I thought, I need to believe that." 

The book explained it is may be easier to remember and believe this concept than to walk it out in day to day life. Boyett takes us on the journey of figuring out how to walk out this concept. 

Readers who enjoy the writing style of Ann Voskamp and/or stay-at-home Mom's will enjoy Boyett's voice in "Found."
