Excerpt  |  Reviews

Writing the Sacred Journey is one of the best books on writing I’ve ever read.

Robert Anderson

In a time when books on spirituality abound, Andrew writes with uncommon wisdom and generosity. To anyone skeptical that spiritual memoir may be too sentimental or self-centered, Andrew demonstrates that ‘the real subject of memoir is not self so much as the human condition’ and she urges us to write for the sake of the story itself.  This is a book you will return to again and again.

Reading Writing the Sacred Journey made me feel like I was hanging out with someone I love hanging out with. It’s helpful, it’s affirming–it’s just an irreplaceable, incredible gift.

Nancy King Bernstein

Here is the definitive handbook for those courageous souls taking on the creative and ethical challenge of writing a spiritual memoir. 

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

This is a courageous work, full of practical exercises and examples of techniques… The author’s use of the term “spiritual” is broad enough to include pretty much any illuminating experience of life.
