Walking Away From Religion Into the Heart of Faith

No longer for sale


Join one woman on a spiritual journey in, around, and through the church on her way to a deeper connection to Jesus…

Andrea Syverson was raised Catholic. As in really Catholic, from plaid jumpers to early-morning Mass to meatless Fridays.

And then she did the unthinkable. She fell in love with a non-Catholic man whose questions about her faith she simply couldn’t answer.

What’s a good Catholic girl to do?

Frequently whimsical, often profound, always honest, Andrea shares her spiritual journey—one that feels familiar to anyone seeking Jesus. It’s a jumbled jaunt from religion to relationship, from going to church to being the church.

Whether you love church or are done with it, or you’re simply seeking a more authentic relationship with Jesus—Andrea's story will resonate with your heart.
