Mollie Player is just a regular person—not someone who’s particularly cut out for enlightenment. However, she thinks that regular people like her can still attempt such a feat. After all, how hard can it be? And so, one fine January first, Player decides to conduct a year-long two-part experiment. The first part of the experiment is to finally find a few best friends. The second part is to learn how to do something which the Apostle Paul advises in the Bible and which she has always wanted to try.
She decides to pray without ceasing—to communicate continuously with the Divine.
The results: You’re Getting Closer: One Year of Finding God and a Few Good Friends—and all the unexpected experiences detailed therein.
Exploring the nature of enlightenment, the value of friendship and the never-ending quest for more, Player’s easy-to-read, humorous voice is at its no-holds-barred best in this first-in-series exploration that readers of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love will no doubt appreciate.
From the author: All of my ebooks are always free. Get the Kindle ebook on Amazon or a free PDF by emailing mollie at mollieplayer.com. You can also get the print version on Amazon.
Mollie Player is just a regular person who’s nevertheless trying to do a few really hard things: overcome depression forever—and maybe get enlightened, too. Her plan: read as many helpful books as she can, then implement their advice—and pass along everything she learns along the way.
The results so far: her Mystical Memoir series, beginning with You’re Getting Closer: One Year of Finding God and a Few Good Friends, which follows her attempts to find inner peace through practical, spiritual techniques; other self-help books; and her blog, Suddenly Awesome.
Suddenly Awesome is unapologetic self-help advice for the self-obsessed. There, Player writes about the books, tips and spiritual practices that make her otherwise ordinary life suddenly awesome.
Player lives in Seattle, Washington. All of her ebooks, all of the time, are free.
All of Player’s works are available on Amazon, on Smashwords and by emailing her (for PDF versions). See mollieplayer.com for more information.
