Everywhere Holy: Seeing Beauty, Remembering Your Identity, and Finding God Right Where You Are

Kara Lawler. Thomas Nelson, $17.99 (224p) ISBN 978-1-4002-1163-0
Blogger Lawler (A Letter for Every Mother) invites readers in this hopeful, uplifting testament to draw closer to God—and therefore to their authentic selves—by looking to uncover beauty within ordinary moments. Sharing personal stories from her home in the Appalachian Mountains, Lawler’s quiet reveries and reflections have the feel of a contemplative spiritual retreat. Whether she’s washing freshly laid eggs or revisiting her childhood home in search of the little girl she used to be, Lawler’s meditative storytelling is authentic and spiritually insightful. She also candidly chronicles her struggle with depression and anxiety, and how this has affected her relationship with God and her family. Instead of offering the typical end-of-chapter questions so readers can better apply what they read, Lawler addresses the reader midstory to ask questions and provide time to pause and reflect. Christian readers who are dealing with depression, parenting struggles, questions of identity and self-image, or who simply find it hard to bring prayer into their chaotic life will find welcome encouragement in Lawler’s rejuvenating words.
