The spiritual life defies description through words. To understand our own spiritual experiences and talk about them with others, we often rely on images or metaphors to convey our meaning. Linda Wilson explores metaphors that are commonly used for expressing life in the spirit, noting that their meaning can vary from person to person, framed by one’s geographical roots, culture, and gender. Wilson recognizes her own spirituality in the image of “tending one’s spiritual home,” a metaphor she develops with insight and care, as she offers an example to readers for finding and working with one’s own metaphors.
