Life is often a blur of people and events, becoming so busy that there isn't time to reflect on life, its meaning, or God's presence. "God is at work in what seem to be random events and even brokenness," Mary Lou Redding writes. At times, life seems like a jumble of loose ends, but God sees from another perspective--weaving a tapestry of life and redemption for the whole world, with each person's story as part of that narrative.
Redding tells stories of her own family and asks questions that encourage readers to recall joyful as well as painful moments in their lives. She skillfully leads readers to capture their stories and reflect on how God has been present in their lives. The book is designed so readers can select which parts are most appealing to them, with no pressure to complete every chapter or answer every question. A guide for small groups is included that can be used for 4, 6, 8, or 16 sessions.
