Church of the Small Things The Million Little Pieces That Make Up a Life By Melanie Shankle

Church of the Small ThingsThe Million Little Pieces That Make Up a Life

By Melanie Shankle

Melanie Shankle, New York Times bestselling author and writer at The Big Mama Blog tackles these questions head on in her fourth book, Church of the Small Things. Easygoing and relatable, she speaks directly to the heart of women of all ages who are longing to find significance and meaning in the normal, sometimes mundane world of driving carpool to soccer practice, attending class on their college campus, cooking meals for their family, or taking care of a sick loved one.
The million little pieces that make a life aren’t necessarily glamorous or far-reaching. But God uses some of the smallest, most ordinary acts of faithfulness—and sometimes they look a whole lot like packing lunch.
Through humorous stories told in her signature style, full of Frito pie, best friends, the love of her Me-Ma and Pa-Pa, the unexpected grace that comes when we quit trying to measure up, and a little of the best TV has to offer, Melanie helps women embrace what it means to live a simple, yet incredibly meaningful life and how to find all the beauty and laughter that lies right beneath the surface of every moment.
My Thoughts:
Have you ever wondered if the small things matter? Does the mundane, everyday routine of life matter? Yes, of course it matters! It matters to God and it matters to the Kingdom! Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime as you open an amazing book full of wit, laughter and belly laughs! This book will bring tears to your eyes as your heart will be overjoyed, but you will also feel deeply connected to your purpose, gifts, talents and ultimately the creator. This book is one that every woman can pick up to read and enjoy. Melanie is an open book and it makes this book easy to read, easy to open your heart and easy to empathize. I highly recommend this book. I give this book 5/5 stars. If you think going to church is about being in a building, Melanie will show you that the church is more than a building. Give this book a read!
