What do you do when you wake up and feel like you’re not enough for your life? Or when you look out the kitchen window as dusk falls and wonder how do you live when life keeps breaking your heart?

In sixty vulnerably soulful stories, The Way of Abundance moves from self-weary brokenness to Christ-focused givenness.

Christ Himself broke like bread, giving Himself to us so we might have a lifelong communion with Him. Could it be that our brokenness is also a gift to the world?  These tender devotionals dare us to embrace any and all brokenness as a gift that moves us closer to the heart of God. 

This gentle book does nothing less than take you on an intimate journey of the soul.

I know it’s hard to know how it’s all going to work with that problem, the kids, your health, this season. What if you didn’t need to know what was coming ahead of you, as much as needed to lean on Him who is beside you?
“Let the one who walks in the dark who has no light,
trust in the name of the Lord & rely on their God.” Is. 50:10
We want clarity; God wants us to come closer.
Come closer to God who’s got it: Lean on His Love, Rely on His strength.
Sometimes we want greater clarity when what we need is deeper trust.
Life is always clearer when you press closer to Him
& see your life through the sheer love of God.
