Glorious Autumn Days: Meditations for the Wisdom Years by Judith Lawrence

Judith Lawrence brings us another book which seems to speak straight from her heart, to that of the reader. I actually finished this book a couple of weeks ago but I wanted to savour the contents and let them sink in, before attempting to review it.

In Glorious Autumn Days, as the title suggests, Judith provides a number of meditations which are geared towards the golden years of our lives. In each meditation she captures beautifully the emotions, the doubts, the fears, any feelings of being lost that the reader may have and much more.

This book shines even more strongly - and beautifully - with Judith's faith and while I myself am open to all religions and religious expression, this book may not be for you if you don't want to focus intently on the Christian faith. The messages I gleaned from the pages though, are greatly inspirational and thought provoking. There are many little guided exercises for the reader to do too, which I liked.

While this book wasn't greatly suited to me personally, I highly recommend it for those who have, or are curious about, a firm Christian belief system.
