Tattoos on the Heart Book Project Natalie pearson


The main theme of this chapter was love. My favorite story was the one of Luis and Tiffany. I loved the fact that Luis got to rebuild and start a life with his daughter, who he loved. However, it was also the most difficult one to read as he died in the end. Coupled with knowing that Tiffany is now fatherless, needless to say I almost cried.

Chapter 1 God, I Guess: The main theme of this chapter was joy. More specifically, God has so much joy in us that he cannot find room for disapproval. My favorite story this chapter was when G journeyed to Cochabamba and the old man dropped rose petals on him. It was so sweet and uplifting and it made me smile. This entire book is simply amazing. It has a great message.

Chapter 2 Dis-Grace: The theme for this chapter is acceptance. Mostly acceptance of you, the mistakes you've made and your flaws, and learning to move on from that. That's a very powerful statement in my opinion. My favorite story this chapter was the one about Lula. He's entirely innocent in all of this and so kind it makes me smile a little just thinking about it. Plus, the part with his report card was hilarious, when he got all F's but no absences. I love this book.

You stand with the belligerent, the surly, and the badly behaved until bad behavior is recognized for the language it is: the vocabulary of the deeply wounded and of those whose burdens are more than they can bear.

My favorite quote by Gregory Boyle, taken from chapter 8 of Tattoos on the Heart. And that concludes my project!
