(Barry’s score 5 out of 5 stars)
Let me admit to my bias right away, I loved Mrs. B’s blog “Confessions of a Pagan Soccer Mom”. I would frequently visit her blog and enthusiastically entered her giveaways (I didn’t win any — damnit), and would dig through her postings. Her fusion of her spirituality with her everyday life was priceless. Sadly, her blog address is now linked to Patheos and it just doesn’t seem to have the feel that it once did. However, for those of us who miss her blog, we can read her book.
I enjoy reading how people express their spirituality. For some their faith is little more than visiting a building and performing some ritual, but for others their spirituality is expressed in everyday activities. She gave me so many things to think about and a few things have worked themselves into my rather eclectic form of spirituality.
Is it for Wiccan’s alone? I don’t think so. Anyone who is esoterically inclined will find Mrs. B’s book fascinating. It is packed with great tips and fun graphics (I loved the little black cats). I highly recommend it and give it a solid 5 stars out of 5. I think that Mrs. B’s Guide to Household Witchery is a “Must read”!
