One woman's journey in, around, and through the church on her way to Jesus
Andrea Syverson was raised Catholic. As in really Catholic, from plaid jumpers to early-morning mass to meatless Fridays.
And then Andrea did the unthinkable. She fell in love with a non-Catholic man, whose questions about her faith she simply couldn't answer.
What's a good Catholic girl to do?
Frequently whimsical, often profound, always honest, Andrea shares her spiritual journey—one that feels familiar to anyone seeking Jesus. It's a sometimes jumbled jaunt from religion to relationship, from going to church to being the church.
Whether you love church, are done with it, or are simply seeking a more authentic relationship with Jesus—Andrea's story will speak to your heart.
"Alter Girl is an eye opening, encouraging and deeply personal read to help every believer go deeper into the beauty of the Gospel. Andrea writes particularly to those of the Catholic faith to encourage them to come to know that "Jesus loves me as is!" The power of her testimony and life's journey into a revelation of the intimate love of God will be alluring to every reader."

"Alter Girl is a tour de force of learning how to abandon preconceptions of the life of faith and embrace what is so generously given. Beautifully and honestly written."
