Hi reader friends! In October I started a 2nd buddy read/book club pick for Tay’s Book Club. In an effort to grow closer to God myself, I wanted to read more books that taught me of Christ and helped me grow spiritually. In October we’ve been reading You Are the Girl for the Job and I’ve loved it!
We’ll have our discussion over on Instagram (in a chat) and I’m so excited for that! I’m also excited to continue this part of my book club in November.
Our book for November is Even This by Emily Belle Freeman
Even This invites readers to make room for daily personal experiences with God. From the very first page readers will walk down a spiritual path meant to remind each of us that God will meet us in the unexpected, bringing His goodness, giving us cause to trust, reminding us of His capacity. Filled with deeply personal stories about holding onto belief, daring to trust, and longing for understanding, Even This chronicles one woman’s quest to find God in the everyday moments-with one of the most powerful experiences taking place as she searches for sea shells while walking on the beach-and provides many opportunities for individual introspection. “Yes, God is good and He can be trusted,” Freeman concludes, “and it is the daily discovery of these truths that has the potential to become the greatest journey of a life and lead us closer to Him.”
Ultimately, the author hopes Even This will encourage and motivate readers to:
Stop letting fear dictate the depth of your belief through simple daily reflections that will restore your confidence in God.
Let go of your need to control by discovering what is holding you back from being completely vulnerable in your relationship with God.
Diminish the power of doubt by coming to understand why the place of deepest asking is where the believing begins.
Learn how to trust that God may have something entirely different in mind than you could ever anticipate–something better.
Why I Picked Even This
Because now more than ever I think we need to have daily experiences with God, but I know that I have not always been in a space to do that. I am excited to read this book and see how I can be better about letting God in, even when things don’t go the way I planned or if I ever have a crisis of faith.
Where do we chat?
Besides this post here announcing our book, we’ll have a discussion over on Instagram. I’ll share a post near the end of the month that includes questions for you to answer + we’ll have some chats on my stories, so be sure to follow along over there!
Where can I grab a copy of Even This
Check your library to see if they have it! Mine did not have a copy of this, so I did request it for my library to get, but I also bought my own copy from Bookshop.org!
I’m so excited to read Even This and learn how I can make God an even bigger part of my life. Will you be reading with me!?
