Over the course of this year, I have discovered a truly wonderful writer and bible teacher called Margaret Feinberg. If you like Shauna Niequist or Ann Voskamp, you’ll love Margaret. Margaret’s books are full of freshness and vitality, she writes in a very understated but authentic way, poetically expressing circumstances and emotions that we all face, but challenges us to live the way that God intends us to. I’m currently very blessed to be previewing her new book and 7-session Bible Study called Wonderstruck. Wonderstruck (in her words) is a personal invitation for you to toss back the covers, climb out of bed, and drink in the fullness of life and (in my words) it honestly does just that!
The book aims to help us:
* Recognise the presence of God in the midst of your routine
* Unearth extraordinary moments on ordinary days
* Develop a renewed passion for God
* Identify what’s holding you back in prayer
* Discover joy in knowing you’re wildly loved
I’ve found since reading the first few chapters, I’ve been spotting God more regularly in my “same old” routine; seeing God answer prayers that I’d forgotten I’d prayed; marveling at God in creation and sensing Him in the mundane (anyone for washing up??), in my relationships and in the extraordinary.
You can see more info about Wonderstruck here, I think the book releases on Christmas Day so I’d thoroughly recommend it for any Christmas Money you get!
