"Sometimes it’s doing the thing that terrifies you that really helps you grow...” Discover the new spiritual memoir Mercy & Grace on the Camino de Santiago by Idaho author, Cathleen Booth
"Sometimes it’s doing the thing that terrifies you that really helps you grow...”
These words, spoken in love by a friend, motivated 300-pound Cathleen Booth off her couch and onto the Camino de Santiago. Cathleen’s physical limitations quickly shattered any illusions of self-sufficiency and pride. On a muddy mountainside in Spain - at her most vulnerable - Cathleen would experience from her friend a self-sacrificial love that would ultimately change her from the inside out. Equal parts humor, humility, and heart, Mercy & Grace on the Camino de Santiago invites the reader on deeply intimate and human spiritual journey.
Cathleen is licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor for Catholic Charities of Idaho, frequently speaks & provides training in the community on mental health topics, and volunteers for the Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat Ministry. She and her husband Christopher have been married nearly 27 years and they have three adult children, Madeleine, Emma, and Alexandra. Her family attends St. Mark's Parish in Boise.
