Filled with raw stories of hope and heartache, Starry-Eyed is a book about reconciliation. It is an anthem for every woman who seeks to bring wholeness to the divided. Because the truth is, we are often too exhausted to make peace with all the fragmented, disjointed parts of our life – the light and the dark, the delight and the despair, the clean and messy and everything in between.

Author Mandy Arioto offers embers of truth that will thaw some weary places toward the holy. There is conversation about motherhood and how tender and beautiful and lonely it can be. There are stories about sex and relationships and courage and freedom. Because being a woman is all of it.

Starry-Eyed is the kind of book that you can read in an afternoon but you won’t because you aren’t ready for it to end. Arioto boldly challenges readers to start enjoying the light and getting comfortable with the darkness, and asks: Are you ready to feel alive again? To make peace with the things that haunt you? Or to have your eyes restored to see a God you know but haven’t encountered in years?

This is your moment to come back to life. To restore the famished parts of your body and soul and to regain your vision. If you are looking for a north star, Starry-Eyed is the book that will help guide you home.
