One Hundred Birds Taught Me to Fly: The Art of Seeking God


One Hundred Birds Taught Me to Fly is for restless souls who desire to know God more deeply. Ashley Mae Hoiland bids us follow her down “the hallowed and well-trodden path between the heart and mind,” where glimpses of godliness are discovered in rainstorms, bus rides, temples, and mountains. As a Latter-day Saint, Hoiland explores the complexities of faith in everyday life where laughter and creativity matter as much as faith, hope, and charity.
