Addie blogs regularly at www. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Andrew, and their two young sons. A refreshing, hopeful book from an expert storyteller. Addie walks through fire and still comes through shining with hope.
When We Were on Fire is a memoir of such sophisticated and witty grace, it reads as the laughing prayer of a vagabond saint. Her journey through the disillusionments and then her rebellion against the false boundary-markers and empty language of an "on fire" faith culminate in her ongoing journey of hope and redemption. There is a wise sadness to her words, a depth that disarms. Hilarious and heartfelt, passionate and poetic, her take on growing up evangelical reveals a classic coming-of-age story with an evangelical twist.

She Writes and Rights
All the time. I want to be spiritually and emotionally filled every day. I want to be loved and cuddled by a hundred children and never go a day without laughing. I want to be challenged endlessly. I want to work so hard that I end every day filthy and too tired to move. I want to make some kind of difference, no matter how small, and I want to follow the calling God has placed on my heart.
I want to give my life away, to serve the Lord with each breath.

When she washes out of church and nearly her marriage on a sea of tequila and depression, she isn't sure if she'll ever go back. It's a story for anyone who has ever felt alone in a crowded church. For the cynic. The doubter. The former Jesus freak struggling with the complexity of life.
It's a story about the slow work of returning to love, Jesus, and perhaps toughest of all His imperfect followers. And in the end, it's about what lasts when nothing else seems worth keeping.

So she loads her two small children into the minivan one February afternoon and heads south in a last-ditch effort to find the Light. In her second memoir, Night Driving, Zierman powerfully explores the gap between our sunny faith fictions and a God who often seems hidden and silent.
Against the backdrop of rushing interstates, strangers' hospitality, gas station coffee, and screaming children, Zierman stumbles toward a faith that makes room for doubt, disappointment, and darkness Similar audiobooks. Surprised by Oxford: A Memoir. Carolyn Weber.

Carolyn Weber arrives at Oxford a feminist from a loving but broken family, suspicious of men and intellectually hostile to all things religious.
