What if our truest life is the one right in front of us?
Does life sometimes seem to be passing you by? Are you so busy—with email to check, Instagram to scroll through, and friends to be envious of—that you’ve become disconnected from your actual life? You know, the one you are living right here, right now?
With hilariously relatable confessions and profoundly beautiful insights, Kate Merrick invites us to stop running away from the lives we’re living today and instead walk in the peace and fullness God offers moment to moment. She shows us how to
kill your Wi-Fi, put down the tech, and find deeper contentment,
redirect the FOMO so you don’t miss out on your own life, and
go on a diet of fewer choices to discover the blessings of the quiet, the slow, and the intentional.
Only when we look honestly at our hearts and have the courage to live truly present do we receive the gifts of God found in all of life’s seasons—the painful ones, the big and beautiful ones, and even the ordinary ones.
My thoughts: I know a lot of us nowadays struggle with how to balance life and technology, something most of us didn't grow up with a lot of (in comparison). I love that Kate takes on how to draw apart from technology and focus on the things that really matter in life. I needed the reminders. Her writing style is enjoyable and like sitting with a good friend. If you are looking to make more of the moments you have and be more intentional with living, this is an excellent book to pick up!
