Writer Anne Lamott at Decatur Baptist
She talked to a full sanctuary about her new book, "Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers."
About 800 people crowded into Decatur First Baptist Church on Monday night to hear writer Anne Lamott talk about her book, "Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers."
The venue was appropriate, since the book is about spirituality.
Lamott said she and her two brothers were raised by atheist parents but all three siblings ended up as Christians. She credited prayer with helping her become sober after years of heavy drinking and drug use.
She appeared at the church last March to promote another book, ”Some Assembly Required: A Journal of My Son’s First Son.”
