I’m thrilled to share with you that my next book, Nurture the Wow: Finding Spirituality in the Frustration, Boredom, Tears, Poop, Desperation, Wonder, and Radical Amazement of Parenting will be released by Flatiron Books in April. And just as exciting, you can preorder the dang thing now. Here. Really.
Carol Lee Flinders, the legendary scholar of mysticism, writes,
“Remember the ‘operating instructions’ Anne Lamott famously complained don’t come with babies? Well, they finally got here! Rabbi Danya Ruttenerg breaks the news gently: the kids themselves aren’t the problem — the manual we need is for our own messed-up mental states, and Nurture the Wow is exactly that. I so wish I’d had this wise, funny, and insightful book thirty-six years ago, and once my son’s read it he will wish I had too!”
