Jacket cover of Anne Lamott's

In Help, Thanks, Wow, popular novelist and spiritual writer Anne Lamott offers three simple prayers that can make a world of difference in the life of a believer.  In this slim volume (just over 100 pages) Lamott includes personal reflections and amusing anecdotes to illustrate her insights, celebrating the divine and explaining our need for a higher power.  Her three "essential prayers"--seeking help and offering thanks and praise--will resonate with many readers during the Easter season.  Marked by their self-deprecating humor and openness, Lamott's nonfiction works are largely autobiographical and cover such subjects as alcoholism, single motherhood, depression and Christianity.
