Lacy's book appealed to me for how it incorporated the messiness of what many spiritual journeys are, with the practicality of daily practices. She presents seven over-arching spiritual principles, outlined in a daily reading for each day of the week, over the course of 7 weeks - just the kind of structure that appeals to a busy mama and list-maker like me! If you haven't check out Pilgrim Principles yet, I encourage you to do so.
After reading Lacy's book, I emailed her to thank her for this literary contribution to the world, and to ask more about her journey as a writer, blogger and author. As our emails continued to go back-and-forth, the opportunity was presented for me to be featured as one of her "Pilgrims in Residence." This would be an opportunity for me to talk about my own spiritual journey - the ups and downs, the wandering and wondering, and where it all has lead.
Lacy wrote, "The story Noelle's been sharing all month is exactly the type of journey I want to share with and awaken in others—one which moves us toward mystery, and, consequently, draws us closer to our true selves and the Divine."
It was an honor and a revelation to write this series. If you missed it, please consider giving them a read now. Each part is very short, but captures so succinctly so much of my life and spiritual journey over the past decade. I would be honored to share this story with you!
