At Home in this Life: Finding Peace at the Crossroads of Broken Dreams and Beautiful Surprises
Purchase At Home in this Life here:
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!
