Winner is Julie Bays! Loved hearing all of your hopes- thank you for sharing.
I have two new fantastic books that I want to introduce you today!
Margaret is easy going and kind- we had the pleasure of meeting at Catalyst and before I knew it she was issuing the dearest invitation to her home in Colorado. I hope to take her little hospitable self up on it someday! But since we can’t all escape to the glorious mountains and experience God- she brings God’s glory to life in her new book! Get it!
You were created and designed to experience wonder. Woven into the fabric of our humanity is an innate ability and desire for the wonder of God. It’s felt in the moments when you watch the sun melt behind the horizon, when you reach out to cradle a baby and smell the sweet scent of new life, when you can’t help but smile as you witness two wrinkled souls renew their vows to each other. Such moments remind us we were made for something more than deadlines and debt, carpools and coffee breaks. Yet despite such wondrous moments, we can still find ourselves going through the motions of faith.No matter who you are or where you’ve been—if you’ve lived a life where you’ve seen it all, done it all, or feel like you’re past it all—God still longs to take your breath away. Yet why do we pass by the wonder of God unaware?
I’ve yet to meet Justin in person but Trisha has stolen my heart… we grabbed lunch together recently and she is as transparent as they come. They are exactly the pair to take you into the crevasses of marriage, the places that only you and your spouse know exist and you rarely have time to work in them. Go there!
Justin and Trisha Davis know just how dangerous ordinary can be. In this beautifully written book, Justin and Trisha take us inside the slow fade that occurred in their own marriage—each telling the story from their own perspective. Together, they reveal the mistakes they made, the work they avoided, the thoughts and feelings that led to an affair and near divorce, and finally, the heart-change that had to occur in both of them before they could experience the hope, healing, and restoration of a truly extraordinary marriage.
