Won the GOLD!
God Said What?! Words to Inspire
Dear Awesome Person,
I hope that you are doing well along your journey. I know that life can bring bumps and bruises of all sizes as much as it can bring joy and moments of wonder. I hope that you are enjoying many moments of wonder and amazement as the clock turns back, the weather turns cool and the holiday season is ushering in. And if you are in a different hemisphere or in a place of no clock change, lucky you! May you have happy in the light and warmth 🙂
God Said What?! #MyOrthodoxLife is continuing its incredible journey. I just returned from a book tour in California filled with speaking engagements and book signings. It was lovely to meet readers and to share stories of love, mysticism and faith as well as hope.
I spoke at Spa for the Soul at Chani Hecht’s Brentwood Chabad, Bais Rebbe school (8th grade class), and Geula Newman’s Beverlywood synagogue. The crowd was attentive, curious and, where fitting, interactive. If someone would have told my introverted self a few years ago that I’d be doing speaking engagements, I would not have believed them. But as I shared in a previous newsletter, Showing Up For Yourself—Words to Inspire, it is often up to us to step out of our comfort zones to bring more light and creative expansion to the world.
Also, more special news is tada!—God Said What?! #MyOrthodoxLife won the GOLD award by the Nonfiction Book Awards!
The review was spectacular and it’s so wonderful that the book is being seen for the intention I wrote it for—to help bring peace, light, unity and meaning to an often dark world.
Official NFAA Review:
“Reading Miriam Racquel Feldman’s memoir God Said What?! feels like sitting down across from the author to listen to her candidly speak her mind in a way others wish they could, and leaning in to hear her whisper innermost thoughts and personal reflections she’s not quite sure should be said aloud in mixed company.
Readers–regardless of their religious, cultural, or familial background–will find her raw honesty refreshing and relatable, not to mention educational (the Glossary of Terms and the Resources section at the back of the book are incredible), as the author shares her recollection of conversations, interactions, and traditions that give insight into aspects of the Jewish faith that may be unfamiliar to many. Historical accounts as experienced firsthand by family and community members are plentiful and engaging. Photos sprinkled throughout the book allow readers to put faces to the “characters”–family and friends–who helped shape the author’s life in various ways over the years.
A journey like the one Feldman writes about in her book is understandably emotional. Feelings are splashed across every page, and the author’s writing style pulls readers into those moments easily. God Said What?! will inspire many in ways they don’t even expect by the time they turn the final page. A truly special book!”
