"The Memory of Good: Meditations on Conversion and Gratitude"
Click here to learn more about Miriam's second book, released in the fall of 2015. "The Memory of Good" is a collection of lyrics, essays, and prayers. Read it in a single sitting, or use it as a daily devotional, taking one chapter at a time...either way, this book is intended as a springboard for further prayer, meditation and action. The chapters have a corresponding song, so this is a reading experience which comes with its own soundtrack!
There are places that you love and there are places where you belong. It's a curious thing that they're not always the same...
