“Kaitlin B. Curtice is a young, Native American Christian mystic who portrays the sacredness of the human condition in everyday language through her writing. Her use of poetic prayers and stories in Glory Happening inspires us to find the divine in every aspect of life, and gifts us with the opportunity to embrace and mirror the gracious reality of God and glory in our midst.”

–Fr. Richard Rohr, Founder, Center for Action and Contemplation, Author, THE NAKED NOW and FALLING UPWARD

 

“Kaitlin B. Curtice prayed, ‘Teach me the art of tethering.’ Her answered prayer is an unfolding of glory – sights and sounds witnessed in words and phrases spare and plain daring us to take delight in life again.”

— John Blase, Poet & Author, THE JUBILEE

 

“Kaitlin B. Curtice was born with a set of eyes that see beyond the ordinary. She sees beauty and holiness in mess, mayhem, and monotonous routine. She sees miracles in darkness. She sees hope in human heartache and promise in dead ends. Then Kaitlin takes to paper, and that is where the divine appears. Her words change us, lift us, inspire us, transform us, heal us. I’m certain Kaitlin was born to advocate, bringing world-changing awareness where light is limited. Kaitlin is the light of hope our world desperately needs now.”

–Rachel Macy Stafford, New York Times bestselling Author, HANDS FREE MAMA and ONLY LOVE TODAY 

 

“Kaitlin B. Curtice writes with a deep, sweet, reflectiveness about the odd places she encounters ‘glory,’ that is, Jesus. This first book by an exciting young Christian mystic is a must-read. Kaitlin helps us look for Jesus again, and helps us meet him in some surprising places. Strongly recommended!”

–David P. Gushee, Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics, Vice President, the American Academy of Religion, Author, KINGDOM ETHICS

 

“Kaitlin B. Curtice is the kind of writer whose words carry you to spacious places where you can breathe again. When I read Glory Happening, I was in a frantic season of my life, hurried and harried and kind of lost. With each of Kaitlin’s stories and prayers, I was gently invited back to a place of rest and grace. If you can stand it, please sip this book. It’s too delicious to drink all in one gulp.”

–Steve Wiens, Author, BEGINNINGS: THE FIRST SEVEN DAYS OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE and WHOLE: RESTORING WHAT IS BROKEN IN ME, YOU, AND THE ENTIRE WORLD

“Kaitlin writes with a gentle voice that leads us on a journey. In this book, she walks with us into the heart of glory, asking what it means to find sacred spaces in everything. Her young, indigenous voice brings a fresh perspective of lyrical prayer and storytelling to the world. If you love the wisdom and poetry of Kathleen Norris, Barbara Brown Taylor, Annie Dillard, Mary Oliver, and Richard Rohr, you’ll love Kaitlin B. Curtice.”

–Brian McLaren, Speaker, Activist, Author, THE GREAT SPIRITUAL MIGRATION

 

“Glory Happening is a stunning collection of writings and reflections that call us to return to a posture of awe and wonder in every moment of life. Kaitlin B. Curtice reflects on ordinary life with captivating prose and penetrating insight that cuts through the fog of our busyness and moves us to see the glory of God at work in us and around us every day. This book is truly a healing balm and a bright light for those of us who have grown disillusioned with faith, refreshing the soul and reigniting a spark of hope in the heart.”

 

-Brandan Robertson, Author, NOMAD: A SPIRITUALITY FOR TRAVELING LIGHT

 

“For such a time as our time when busy and blindness is par for the course of western culture, Glory Happening is the kindest invitation to slowing and really seeing; Glory Happening is heaven-sent antidote to human ailment. Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters.”

–Erika Morrison, Author, BANDERSNATCH: AN INVITATION TO EXPLORE YOUR UNCONVENTIONAL SOUL

 

“There is nothing like a good story. In Glory Happening, Kaitlin Curtice shares her well-conceived quotes, prose and poetry in a series of real-life, uncomplicated and transformative stories. She draws from the seemingly mundane subject of everyday life as well as, from a wide-reaching world of interests. With word-smithing that flows gently like a mountain stream, her work gifts us with deep content and relevant context. I found Glory Happening fascinating and inspiring; challenging me to go deeper in my relationship with creation and with Creator-God.”
