Our Holy Yearnings Life Lessons for Becoming Our Truest Selves is the latest offering from popular and best-selling author Joan Chittister. She presents the idea that we spend our lives searching for answers only to find in the end that it was the search that mattered because we are following a yearning that leads us to God. Our Holy Yearnings looks at the myth of perfection and how we grow the most when dealing with failures. She says of yearning "it is what tells us that we are made for holiness. It keeps us looking for the God who is Complete Satisfaction". "She reflects on the myth of perfection, our need for failure, the power of true humility, reverence for the created world, and the search for God". The power of personal experiences to make a book more interesting is well known and Chittister uses her own experiences to make and help clarify points about which she is talking in Our Holy Yearnings. The ends of each chapter in the book have a series of short sayings that emphasize what was discussed earlier in the chapter.
