    I have read a number of books by Joyce Rupp and enjoyed meeting her in person. I highly recommend her books, particularly A Cup of Our Life. Check out her website, too.

    Very good book although not as powerful as "Praying Our Goodbyes." Well worth the six weeks I spent with this book. I may never look at a cup the same ever again.

    Fantastic book for group spiritual growth. Short daily readings, instructions for breathing meditations, journaling and reflection. Great guide for facilitating as has the format for weekly meetings in the back of the book. Joyce Rupp writes beautiful spiritual poetry. One of my favorites.

    One of the better, if not best, works I've read on spiritual growth as an expression of Christian devotion. This treatment could appeal to persons of any devotional faith-orientation.

    I purchased this book along with the members of our church to use for a daily devotional during Lent. That made it more special, since I knew each day that others I knew were reading the same devotional. Rupp centers the book around a teacup or coffee cup or mug of your choosing and uses scripture to teach each day's lesson. I chose a cup that reminded me of my mother whose passing still affects me this time of year. The daily reading follows a pattern that includes a breathing prayer.

When I read the introduction I thought that it sounded silly, but it turned out that I looked forward each day to finding out what the words were for that day. In a day with a rough patch, I would breathe the prayer again.

    Fantastic daily reading type book for spiritual development. I can't recomend this one strongly enough. I can imagine doing this 6 week program yearly. In some ways it is wrong to call it a daily reading book because that implies that it is just about its topic and doesn't build. Perhaps think a more spiritual version of the artists way.

    I read this book for a bible study group. I liked it but didn't quite finish it as I missed a few meetings. It did lead to some good discussions. I liked the use of the cup. You choose favorite mug and have it with you as you read the book. We are now reading another Joyce Rupp book for our study.

    Joyce Rupp has been the top choice from my "Circle of Hearts" book club. We have just started this book on spiritual practices for a more Western audience. She provides a daily practice as well as weekly.

    This is a keeper! This study guide is one that I can easily see revisiting in the years ahead. Lots to think about and ponder. Well written and organized. Great for a group or individual reflection.

    I've been using this book for my morning devotions the past six weeks. I've used it before, but since I'm at a different place in my life, the reflections are still fresh and relevant. Once again, I am moved by the symbolism of a cup for many things in my life.

    This book made me look at things a different way for 6 weeks and many of it's messages will be long lasting. I enjoyed each week of the book.

    Read this as a group study. Allows you to be introspective, using a cup as a symbol throughout. Provided for good group discussion.

    The group I'm in liked it so much they want to start it again.
