I'm so excited to introduce you to one of my recent favorite reads: Waking Up Slowly, by Dave Burchett. You're going to love this book.
I love what Dave says:
"We live in the most connected culture in the history of the world, but it’s arguably the most disconnected from God and one another.
But does it have to be that way? What if every day we are stubbing our toes on the sacred and not realizing it?
Let’s go on a journey together as mutually flawed and grace needy sojourners to find the attitudes, actions, and things that cause us to miss the sacred moments I believe are there for us to discover every day."
Dave finds humor, kindness, grace, and wisdom in his daily interactions with his dog Maggie, and a host of other critters, friends, and family members. I am so inspired to disconnect from my "screens" and connect with the simple pleasures and "God moments" all around me.
This is the kind of storytelling that resonates with me.
Waking Up Slowly is perfect for summertime reading, or for a gift for someone who loves good, heartwarming stories that draw you closer to God, and open your eyes to His wonderful gifts.
And you KNOW I can't resist a book with an adorable animal on the cover. :)
I'm happy to be able to give away TWO copies of Waking Up Slowly today!
