Is your ordinary, everyday life actually significant? Is it okay to find fulfillment in the simple acts of raising kids, working in an office, and cooking dinner?
It has been said, "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away." This can create added pressure as we go through life looking for the big things that can take our breath away. We must learn not to forsake fully living with every breath we take.
New York Times bestselling author and The Big Mama Blog writer, Melanie Shankle, explores these issues head on with her fourth book, Church of the Small Things. Implementing her easygoing and relatable style, she speaks directly to the heart of women of all ages who are longing to find significance and meaning in the normal, sometimes mundane world of driving carpool to soccer practice, attending class on their college campus, cooking meals for their family, or taking care of a sick loved one.
The multitude of pieces that make a life are not always glamorous or far-reaching. God uses the smallest, and most ordinary acts of faithfulness. Sometimes, they can look a whole lot like packing lunch.
Melanie helps women fully embrace what it means to live a simple, yet incredibly meaningful life, and how to find all the beauty and laughter that lies right beneath the surface of every moment.
