About this ebook

“Brightly illuminating! Tumbled People offers a gracious invitation and a guide through the stages that we can expect to experience on the sacred journey of faith. Jacci not only describes the passages and how they change the way we view God, ourselves, and our life-world, but invites active participation in an authentic process towards spiritual maturation through ancient spiritual practices.  A wonderful companion for those who are willing to undertake the journey of faithing throughout a lifetime.” —The Rev. Canon Catherine Gregg, D.Min.

“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

This was a perfect read for where I am on my spiritual journey. As someone with an evangelical background, deconstruction has meant questioning where my beliefs lie. This book gave incredible insight into that being a very normal part of the spiritual growth process. I also really appreciated the actionable practices I could try. Some I had learned before, but hadn't done in a while and others I had never tried. This book is definitely something I'd like to come back to from time to time to practice something new!
