MY LATEST BOOK
One word a week for one year; one life changed forever.
My Year in Words: what I learned from choosing one word a week for one year is a memoir that walks through a year in the life of the author as she reflected on a word of the week.
“It seemed like such an ordinary year at the time. We planted a garden, we celebrated holidays, we watched the seasons change, and we went on vacation. But we also moved and made career changes and experienced life in all of its everyday, miraculous glory. If I hadn’t been recording it along the way, we might have missed it. My Year in Words is significant because I paid attention, I kept track, and I wrote it down. What are you missing by not doing these things?”
LATEST THEME ON THE BLOG
How can we be thankful now in the midst of so many hard things?
Our four-week series, Thanks in All Things, will explore how we can experience gratitude in both the ups and downs of life. When life brings us happy changes, it’s easy to be thankful. But in the hard changes, the kind that bring suffering and loneliness and despair and even death, gratitude often is the last thing on our minds. We may not be ready to give thanks for the hard seasons or the difficult trials, but can we move closer to gratitude in the midst of them? Can we see even a glimmer of God’s goodness in the midst of all that’s hard and heavy?
