Peace Is a Practice by Morgan Harper Nichols–Book Review

As an adult, author Morgan Nichols was finally diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Now she could understand why, over the years, she had been troubled by so many sensitivities that made it hard for her to feel relaxed and peaceful. In this book, she explores some of the ways she has learned to be peaceful over the years. For her, as for most of us, peace is a practice, not just a fleeting feeling.

Each section of her book has a topic– things like journaling, conversation, trusting, silence, rest. In addition to a short personal essay, there are suggestions for implementing the particular practice into daily life. Morgan is a poet, and snippets of her poetry are included as well.

VERDICT: 5 STARS. I used this as a devotional, reading a chapter or two every day and then trying out some of the ideas. The Bible tells us to “pursue peace” and this book would make an excellent starting place for doing just that.
