Words Are Like Magic is a whimsical collection of rhymes about showing up to life's awkward and painful seasons. Inspired by the stories of women who have been hurt by thoughtless words, or worse, no words at all, these poems help us understand how our friends may be feeling so that we can be there for them with courage and grace.
Some are lighthearted and funny: what to say to your pregnant friend, to your friend with different political views, to your friend who doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life. Others are heavy and raw: what to say to your friend walking through infertility, to your friend battling depression, to your friend struggling with self-image. But they all encourage us to show up for our sisters–to help each other to feel seen, known, and loved with our magical words.
