Becoming Gertrude, Book Review

Becoming Gertrude by Janice Peterson 

Becoming Gertrude is one woman’s wisdom on the beauty of spiritual friendship and God’s unfolding grace over the course of a life lived for Him. Jan uses the term spiritual friendship to capture this idea of journeying with others through life, sharing experiences and wisdom and seeking God together. In Becoming Gertrude, Jan wants to be your spiritual friend, sharing what she’s learned and painting a picture of what you might uncover as you seek to develop these kinds of relationships in your own life.

Join Jan in exploring the critical pieces of spiritual friendship: hospitality, encouragement, acceptance, serving, and caring. With seasoned wisdom and winsome stories, Jan uses personal experiences to walk you through what each of these things can mean in your life. You can have rich, rewarding, faith-filled friendships that emerge from the everyday rhythms of your days—and Becoming Gertrude will lead you on that journey.

My Thoughts: I have to start by saying that the publisher sent me this book to review but that didn't effect my opinion of it in any way. Jan Peterson has been married to Pastor/Author Eugene Peterson for sixty years, Jan has been shaped by his wisdom, insight and pastoral life. Her book is all her own though!  A wonderful peek into at friendship that begins even as a young girl growing up in the southern USA. Warm, winsome, sassy at times, and the whole book just makes you feel like you're living right there with Janice Peterson.
