Everywhere Holy: Seeing Beauty, Remembering Your Identity, and Finding God Right Where You Are
by Kara Lawler
Popular writer and blogger Kara Lawler shows women how to embrace the sacred in the everyday so that they can see the holy and the beautiful–and in the process, discover themselves.
Life doesn’t have to be lived on grand mountaintops for it to be meaningful. We can find holiness in the small, moss-covered rocks along the paths of our everyday lives. We can see God at work right where we are: in our ordinary routines, in the faces of our family and friends, and–especially–in nature.
In Everywhere Holy, Kara Lawler speaks to the hearts of those who find themselves stumbling and faltering and, sometimes, even falling, face down, in the midst of their chaotic schedules and weary attempts to be all that is expected of them. It’s for everyone who longs for more connection with the sacred, for the gratefulness, peace, and blessings that holiness brings, and for the reminder that our identities are grounded in the beauty around us. It’s an invitation to view life as an adventure, to consider simple observation a form of prayer, and to embrace noticing beauty as a spiritual practice.
In beautiful prose, Lawler describes the unique sacredness found in God’s creation and offers sixteen inspiring insights for cultivating it day-to-day. She encourages readers to make this lifestyle change through the observance of small acts. In so doing, they will discover a holy space that honors God and the lives they’ve been given—and will discover themselves and their unique place in the holy that is everywhere.
