Between working full time and running a household, I’m always looking for tips on how to live in the moment. I was beyond excited to read Kate’s newest book.
Thank you Thomas Nelson for gifting me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis from Goodreads: Does life sometimes seem to be passing you by? Are you so busy—with email to check, Instagram to scroll through, and friends to be envious of—that you’ve become disconnected from your actual life? You know, the one you are living right here, right now? With hilariously relatable confessions and profoundly beautiful insights, Kate Merrick invites us to stop running away from the lives we’re living today and instead walk in the peace and fullness God offers moment to moment. She shows us how to kill your Wi-Fi, put down the tech, and find deeper contentment, redirect the FOMO so you don’t miss out on your own life, and
go on a diet of fewer choices to discover the blessings of the quiet, the slow, and the intentional. Only when we look honestly at our hearts and have the courage to live truly present do we receive the gifts of God found in all of life’s seasons—the painful ones, the big and beautiful ones, and even the ordinary ones.
Between Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, emails, my blog, and more…I’m always connected. While it’s a great tool, I don’t want to miss out on what life has to offer! Kate echos the same feelings. I don’t think this book could have come at a better time. I think everyone needs to read this one. This was another book that I felt like I was talking with a friend over coffee while I was reading it. Not only does this book focus on putting the phone down, but it also talks about the don’ts of social media, something that we all need to be reminded of from time to time. It’s an emotional read in more ways than one – realizing how you act upon your social media life choices as well as what Kate has gone through herself. I can’t wait to hear what you all think of it as well.
