  1. In this book and in her first, Thrift Store Saints, Jane Knuth writes about her volunteer work with the poor through the St Vincent de Paul Society She has volunteered at a thrift store in Kalamazoo, Michigan, run by this Catholic charitable organization for almost 20 years In Ms Knuth s books are tales of her encounters with customers at the store and in the surrounding neighborhood The refreshing thing about her point of view is that she doesn t consider herself to be serving the poor, or teac [...]


  2. In many respects, Jane Knuth s Thrift Store Graces is a continuation to her first book Thrift Store Saints Although the general themes and style are very much the same, Knuth explores new facets of serving her community and growing in her Catholic faith by way of her volunteerism at the St Vincent s Thrift Store in Kalamazoo, Michigan She gives an honest perspective of serving sometimes being taken advantage of by the people she serves wondering if on occasion she is being lied to and always rec [...]


  3. This lovely little book is filled with heart warming stories of a woman working in a thrift store There are two threads interwoven within,encounters and lessons learned from her clients at the thrift store and her pilgrimage to Croatia where visions of Mary are reported The stories left me pondering the graces present in my life what my stories might be.


  4. Talking to Mary makes sense now that the author has explained it I m not Catholic so never understood this.I worked for the dept of human services for 28 years, so learning about another agency, St Vincent de Pauls, was so, so interesting We referred people there, but I never took the time to learn their philosophy or methods This was an alternate view of a universe I used to inhabit.


  5. I loved this book Jane reacts so much the way I would in the same situation It gives you so much to think about and now I wish I had a connection to a great group of Christians that are doing so much good and learning along the way Keep up the good work Jane.


  6. I enjoyed meeting the author s fellow workers at St Vincent de Paul and it gave me a pilgrim s look inside the Catholic faith that I ve never had the opportunity to view I ll definitely look for her first title Thrift Store Saints.



  7. The author works at a Catholic thrift store She is told to love, listen and forgive people, and don t try to save them Salvation is God s work Lots of Catholic beliefs included in the book.


  8. Sincere, searching, never pious and often quite funny, these stories of finding God s presence in the St Vincent de Paul Society thrift store resonated strongly for me.


  9. This is an intimate sharing of the author s relationship to God which I find deeply profound She describes hardscrabble spiritual struggles and true miracles.



  10. A good book to end the year on Finding God s gifts in the midst of the mess is a good credo for the new year.
