Publisher's Summary

Winner of five national awards, this new, expanded edition was named one of the "Best Spiritual Books" of the year by Spirituality & Practice.

ON A DARK WINTER NIGHT with little to do, Rivvy Neshama took a "Find Your Highest Purpose" quiz. And the funny thing was, she found it: to live a sacred life. Problem was, she didn't know how.

But she set out to learn. And in the weeks and months that followed, she began to remember and encounter all the people and experiences featured in this book—from her father's jokes to her mother's prayers, from Billie in Harlem to a stranger in Salzburg, and from warm tortillas to the humble oatmeal. Each became a story, like a recipe passed down, beginning with her mother and her simple toast to life.

Neshama's true tales, a memoir of sorts, are filled with love, warmth, and timeless wisdom. They ground us, and they lift us up. They make us laugh, and they make us cry. And most of all, they connect us more deeply with the grace and meaning of our lives.

A Perfect Companion

When you'd like to listen to some inspiring stories but don't have a lot of time (maybe just before you go to bed) this audiobook is a perfect companion. Each of the dozens of Rivvy's life stories is separated by pleasing guitar strums, so you know when to pause (if you want to!). And you'll find stories that feel just right for you. Enjoy!

Wisdom along with laughter and tears

Last year I had read the hardcover of this wonderful book and had loved it. So I was very excited to get the audible copy so I could share this with my husband. Every night we play a chapter before we go to sleep...what a perfect way to end the day together! And I also love the thought that I can listen to the book anywhere and any time of day....if I am feeling particularly stressed, listening to a chapter always brings me to a contemplative, better place! I have recommended this audible book to all my friends and family. This beautiful book makes you ponder the wonderfulness of eveyday events

A wonderful book, wonderfully narrated

Recipes for a Sacred Life really did lift me up! The author's stories and the narrator's performance are beautifully matched. I was completely drawn into the short stories and received a nugget of wisdom and peace with each one. Those nuggets, those little gems, will help me live a much happier, more fulfilled life. Yes, this book is that good.

AUDIBLE: You have this book in the wrong category. It's NOT a cookbook. It's a spirituality book (a wonderful spirituality book).
