The holiday season can be a time of reflection and prayer, even if those prayers are for your dinner to turn out well, or your house to be back to normal from visiting family. It can also be a time of gratitude, and mystery.
Anne Lamott understands the urge to pray and has written a new book about it. The author has always shared her journey through rehab, the birth of her son, and the death of her mother.
Lamott visited Minnesota not long ago to talk about her new book, which boils down prayer into three types.
John Birge spoke with Lamott on "Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers."
