Title: Attend: Forty Soul Stretches Toward God
Author: Laura Davis Werezak
Release Date: February 21, 2017
Description from Goodreads: “A young Christian writer presents a practical guide for reconnecting with God and practicing the presence of God in our frantically busy world today.
Our world is full of distractions that do not promote the health of individual souls. What can people do when they feel they have no time or ways to find God? In her new book ATTEND, Laura Davis Werezak reminds readers to encounter God through 40 brief everyday activities that they have been taking for granted, from opening a window to jotting down a dream. Modern life and technology increasingly render these activities obsolete, and readers who struggle to connect with God through “typical” devotions will discover depth in their everyday lives through each beautifully written exercise. Like the wisdom Brother Lawrence provided in his 17th century spiritual classic The Practice of the Presence of God, these daily reminders guide readers to appreciate God in our midst today.”
Review: This is a wonderful book to remind us all to see God in the small things we do each day. It is so easy to just move on auto pilot in our busy lives but we miss so much by doing that. This book shows simple ways to get closer to God, by simply changing a few things that we do on a regular basis.
This book is really short so it’s a super quick read but filled with such important information. I look forward to using these activities to deepen my relationship with God. This is also a really small and compact book (4.8 x 0.8 x 6.5 inches) making it perfect to pack with you wherever you go, for those much needed reminders throughout the day.
This is a perfect thing for lent!
