Finding Church

Posted by on December 1, 2012 in Books | 7 comments

 

I mistakenly assumed that because I grew up in the church, that staying in church, would always feel comfortable for me.
I couldn’t have been more wrong.

In recent years I have struggled far more with staying in church than I’d like to admit. For a long time, I blamed the church. This left me disgruntled and frustrated in my own self righteousness.

Through a series of small, seemingly insignificant events, God opened my eyes to the problem. Yes, my church is imperfect, but the struggle I wrestled with had a different origin–I was part of the problem.

In the book Finding Church, I share an honest glimpse into my recent struggle to stay in church, and the lessons on love God continues to teach me.

In Finding Church, you’ll read stirring stories of grace and hard lessons learned, you’ll find a friend who’s struggled with some of those same things you have, as you’ve tried to find a church home–or perhaps have found yourself without a church home for one reason or another. Whereve you are in your journey, this book has something for you.

I’m honored and humbled to have been a part of this project.

Finding Church releases today. You can get a hard copy here, or the kindle version HERE.

    Oh my I need this book — it’s my life. I so thought I’d stay in one church and grow old with the same people. That’s the way it worked, right? Well, God had a different plan for our family. It was hard. It was scary. It was uncomfortable.
