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," she writes, "if whatever crazy thing I decide to do doesn’t work out, it doesn’t really matter--no one was paying attention anyway."
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.
