Life as a Prayer


Life as a Prayer is the story of Marggie Hatala’s spiritual transformation during her many years as a hospice nurse. Using her daily spiritual practice of meditative journaling, she reflects honestly on the many authentic life lessons that the dying and their loved ones demonstrated. Life as a Prayer shares many glimpses into her interaction with these life mentors and her co-workers within hospice, followed by her reflection on the life lesson that each provides. Meditation and journal prompts are provided for the reader to explore while developing a deep dialogue with the sacred voice within each of us. Her story is an invitation into a deep inner awareness developed through meditation and journaling. It brings the life lessons of the dying into the light of a life lived fully in mindfulness and presence through self-discovery and emotional honesty.
