It has been such a long time since I wrote! I have been SUPER busy working on BIG things over the last couple of months. With the second quarter about to start, I wanted to get back into writing a few (maybe two) times a month. I thought there was no better way to get back into it than by announcing that I’ll be reading an AWESOME book that discusses busy lives and faith (I mean, is there anything more me? Unless it also included Harry Potter, Batman, and math).
This quarter, I’ll be reading a book that my AMAZING #GodFriend told me about after her religious education conference: Busy Lives & Restless Souls* by
You can order the book through the tickets link above (FREE TWO day shipping for Amazon Prime members!).
Here’s a little tid-bit from Amazon about the book:
“If you’ve already figured out your life and feel totally complete, then this book may not be for you. But if you are like the rest of us, every day presents a mountain of to-do items, jobs to go to, errands to run, projects to complete, meals to cook, children to raise… You forge ahead and get it done, but you know that things aren’t as they should be. Even when you check every item off your daily list, you still feel as though something meaningful and essential is missing from the very center of your life.
Spiritual director and writer Becky Eldredge has felt that same longing, and she knows what people are missing—a relationship with God through prayer. In Busy Lives & Restless Souls, Eldredge interprets principles of Ignatian spirituality in a fresh way to equip us with prayer tools that are accessible and practical within the relentless realities of our daily routines. Just as important, she shows us how we can bring our relationship with God to life by becoming what St. Ignatius called “contemplatives in action.” For all who sense that there is a missing peace in their lives, Busy Lives &Restless Souls will help them find it—right where they are.”
Because this book sounds like what a lot of people need, I’m hosting a book club in the Fab Lifers Facebook Group so we can work through the content together.
Here’s how the #BookClub will work:
- We’ll kick off each week with an opening prayer (LIVE!) shared to our group on Sundays at 8 pm EDT/5 pm PDT.
- We’ll have discussion threads in our group during the week, so you can participate when it works for you!
- We’ll wrap up each week with a live closing prayer on Fridays at 8 pm EDT/5 am PDT.
Don’t worry: Both replays will be linked up in the facebook group, so if you can’t join us for the live prayers, you can watch the replay later!!
I hope you’ll join us!
