In her moving spiritual memoir, Mary DeMuth traces the winding path of “thin places” in her life—places where she experienced longing and healing more intensely than before. As DeMuth writes, “Thin places are snatches of holy ground, tucked into the corners of our world, where we might just catch a glimpse of eternity. They are aha moments, beautiful realizations, when the Son of God bursts through the hazy fog of our monotony and shines on us afresh.” From losing her earthly father to discovering a heavenly Father who never leaves, from singing Olivia Newton-John songs to the sky to worshiping God under a French sun, from surviving abuse as a latchkey kid to experiencing the joy of mothering three children, DeMuth’s story calls readers to a deeper understanding of their own story. With unusual spiritual wisdom, she looks for God in the past so that she might experience him more profoundly in the present. Her powerful words invite readers to know God in a new way—a God ready to break through any ordinary day or extraordinary pain and offer a glimpse of eternity. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teri | 1/20/2014

    " So many hurting children in this world. We need to stand up for the little ones, helpless and half-abandoned. They cannot fight for themselves! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 1/12/2014

    " Cannot put this book down! I picked it up, last night, and read it half-way through. A memoir which handles a difficult, painful past in a sincerely honest way. A lesson in forgiveness and growing through life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 12/22/2013

    " A girl with so much pain and abuse. Some parts of her life she becomes a fanatic over religion. The writing, grammar and spelling not edited very good. But some wonderful thoughts and growth. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Courtney Coover | 12/19/2013

    " Ugh, it's rare I put a book down much less refuse to go back to it after less than 30 pgs. When the writing skill isn't there the message comes out forced and sounds like a past prime evangelist who lost their way a decade ago. I always appreciate some trying to tell their story & share God's word but this woman at the very least needed a much better editor. Kudos to her for her bravery tho "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lee Yahnker | 12/16/2013

    " Not my type of book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzie | 11/17/2013

    " I could not put this book down. Mary's stories are so painful and yet so redeeming as she clearly shows us God's hand in every part of her life and helps us see just how present Jesus is with us in this terribly broken world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 10/16/2013

    " Collection of memories that cause her to reflect on certain issues. I found many to be enlightening. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 7/25/2013

    " Honest and authentic. I haven't walked the same path as Mary, but through her I recognize my own 'thin places' where God meets me in my brokenness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Breanna | 6/12/2013

    " Powerful. Lots of copy and paste worthy parts. Some transitions felt forced. But willing to overlook for the overall message. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 8/7/2012

    " Very moving memoir. Mary goes to the uncomfortable places in her life to show the immense power of God's love drawing us every closer to Him. Great book if you have ever questioned circumstances in your life or wondered if God was there when bad things happen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristie | 2/14/2011

    " A friend of mine recommended this book. It is a novel about how God uses the hard times in our lives to bring us closer to Him. I just downloaded it to my Nook tonight. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blake | 11/24/2010

    " Thin Places is a brutally honest memoir of a young, brittle, brutalized life made beautiful by the grace of God. DeMuth does what all good writers should do: she speaks the truth as best she knows, sharing her story to help others. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shelly Link | 10/8/2010

    " A wonderful soul-stirring book. You feel the pain & hurt of the
    child, Mary. You cry with her and then laugh and feel her every
    victory as she overcomes her past. A must read for the abused people of this world. Another winner, Mary! :) "
