    One thought on “There's a Hula Girl on my Dashboard: How I Left Faith Behind and Embraced Life”

    1. This little book is one of the most beautiful things I’ve read.There’s a Hula Girl on My Dashboard is a deeply personal memoir of self-discovery, the quest for meaning and for belonging. The author goes from Evangelical Christianity to Secular Humanism, and explores several belief systems, illustrating succinctly yet powerfully the periods in her life where she tried these things on, all the time looking for a final Answer, for a resting place and for security.This is a book that is ultimate [...]

    2. What a book! I'd call this an un-testimony. This is the story of my friend Logospilgrim's journey from Catholic to Secular Humanist and all the places in between. I knew the broad strokes of her story and came to know her via Livejournal when she was Orthodox. Something about her resonated with me. Although I am Messianic (and been on my own journey spiritually) I appreciate how she came to be Agnostic and have friends & family who are Agnostic and Atheist. Without spoiling anything just kno [...]

    3. I picked up this book because I had seen the author on Twitter and found her interesting. I wasn’t sure what to think at first, since this reads more like a old-school, late-night, really-honest blog than a formal novel. The author walks us through her spiritual journey, starting with an abusive childhood, and wandering through a wide range of religions, philosophies, and even a stint working a peep show—joined by a somewhat random but clearly heartfelt extended tribute to actor Robert Englu [...]

    4. Having been religiously bullied and brainwashed my entire life, this book really struck a chord with me, and also opened my eyes to a new way of thinking. Read this book and keep an open mind. Too often, religious people will judge, mock, harass, belittle, berate those with different beliefs, and unfortunately, most of those people are only going with the stories that have been drummed into their heads their whole life. They haven't looked at other religions, they haven't even studied their own. [...]

    5. This book somehow found its way into my Twitter feed a couple of weeks ago, and I've been waiting for it to come out on Kindle since then. It was pretty much worth the wait! It's a great little memoir that follows Logospilgrim through different spiritual stages of their life, and covers a little bit of all the religious and spiritual interests that they gained along the way. It was thoughtful, reflective, and interesting.The one criticism I do have is that I would have really liked it to be a li [...]

    6. Logospilgrim's writing is unique and creatively powerful in many ways. Though I am Catholic, I still enjoyed reading about this personal self-discovery journey that opens us to many new diverse subjects to talk about. It also teaches us to accept one another for who we are and to never judge a book by neither it's cover or text, meaning to be kind no matter someone's race, religion or personal views on life. This story is powerful, grips you into Logospilgrim's world and really shows you how to [...]

    7. I want to write the in depth review this book deserves but its been a long weekend and my words are failing me.Leave it at one massively important thing Even tho the book is so short immediately you feel as though you're having a heart-to-heart with a dear friend.

    8. Awesome read. It's a very engaging narrative that takes you through a very interesting life, one that might surprise you.
