Permission to Speak Freely by Anne Jackson

September 7, 2010 — Leave a comment

I recently joined BookSneeze to be able to read books and blog about them! This is my first book to read.

I started reading Anne Jackson’s blog awhile ago and have enjoyed her simple writings so I was looking forward to reading this book by her. I really enjoyed her openness and honesty in her book. She shared parts of her life that I don’t think that I would have shared with a bunch of people I don’t know. I think that this helped to set the tone of the book. I also really like that with permission she had other pieces of art work from other people.

This book also made me think about the church that I attend. Does my church want to hide what is really going on or does it want others to speak out? I believe that we want others to speak freely. We have this great place to get help in all sorts of ways. There is plenty of support group and ways to find healing through Jesus. I would hope that we could all be like this and accept people who have come from a dark path.

I would recommend this book to others because I think that it is a great way to have healing in your past or even what you are going through right now.  I hope that everyone in any church feels like they can speak freely.
