“I remember the first time I did a personality test and realized I wasn’t weird but was a person with a unique but recognizable personality. It was revolutionary in my life because it helped me make sense of who and how I was in the world. I think Jacci’s book will accomplish the same thing for those who are deconstructing their beliefs and questioning their faith. This book is like a spiritual map and just may help them realize that they aren’t lost, but that they are on a very clear path of spiritual progress
and growth.” —David Hayward, aka the NakedPastor
“In an age when everyone is deconstructing and reconstructing their faith experience, Tumbled People offers the tools needed to explore more deeply the stages of faith. And while many books on faith stages outline what that looks like, Jacci takes us deeper as she shares what those shifting stages of growth feel like in real life. This is pure invitation to the reader to explore and experience the journey in companionship with her.” —Marsha Crockett, author of Sacred Conversation: Exploring the Seven Gifts of Spiritual Direction
