"I'll Take God - Hold the Religion is compelling, funny, raw, and wise. This Jewish girl loves what this Catholic girl wrote and the way she wrote it. I came home to parts of my own story in a new way. We all have a relationship with this experience called life. Irene challenges us to live our experience by choice, not by default." - Nancy Slonim Aronie, author, Founder - Chilmark Writing Workshop, NPR Contributor.
"For anyone grappling with separating religion and God, or religion and spirituality, I'll Take God - Hold the Religion is a must. This amazing human being sharing her wisdom and experience from her own spiritual journey has helped me discover and learn to live from my still small voice. Yes, I have found my own deep sense of knowing. At 72, I am finally learning to trust myself." - Dr. Stephen C. Smith, Retired dentist and Vietnam Veteran.
