Okay, first of all, before we get to the book, can I just say how much I LOVE my new site design?? HUGE thanks to Jessica Bejot of 5Pine Designs for making me look soooo good online. She captured my style and met my needs perfectly and I am just over the moon, and so excited to be able to launch my new book on this site!
So now to the 2nd BIG ANNOUNCEMENT of the day!
Y’all, it only took 4 years, but my second book, At Home in this Life: Finding Peace at the Crossroads of Unraveled Dreams and Beautiful Surprises, is about to be released into the world and I could not be more excited.
At Home in this Life is the story of how everything I thought would make me happy came undone, and then how I found a way to make myself at home in this beautiful, messy, amazingly tender, completely unbalanced life, by imperfectly practicing one spiritual discipline at a time—smack in the middle of raising kids, mending the sweaters and burning the bread.
It’s the story of how I finally realized that the “problem” with my life was not my house, my job, or my marriage. My problem was me, and only a Conversion of life, a Transformation of spirit and heart would help. And so I jumped in with both feet into an experiment – an experiment by where I tried to follow God’s leading instead of my plan, an experiment that resulted in a lot of fits and false starts, gut-level honesty and true change. Beautiful, messy, chaotic, daily… this is the story of how I learned to make myself at home in my life. A lesson I will forever need a refresher course on I am sure!
I am really honored that a bunch of my amazing friends have written some beautiful words in support of this book. Shauna Niequist wrote the Forward (bringing me to tears with her generous words,) and Sarah Bessey, Tsh Oxenrider, Micha Boyett, Christie Purifoy, Mark and Lisa Scandrette, Katherine Willis Pershey and Traci Smith have all written the most lovely, humbling endorsements. Sarah’s words in particular took my breath away:
Jerusalem Greer has written a relatable, warm, and utterly charming book of theology within time and place. The radical act of staying put with a community and a home and a family is an example of faith and hope and healing for these fragmented instant times. This is an incarnational book, an embodiment of how God shows up in our right-now lives with steady surprise and everyday richness.” – Sarah Bessey, author of “Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith” and “Jesus Feminist”
