Product Description

“This is beautiful and brilliant stuff, profound and plain, incredibly human, wise and charming. I trusted and enjoyed every word.” 
–Anne Lamott, New York Times best-selling author about Finding God in Messy Places

When something breaks, it usually leaves a mess. The same is true with our broken lives. When we compare ourselves to others, stress becomes too much to handle, or when life in general overwhelms us, it’s hard to find hope inside the mess of our brokenness. Without hope we lack the courage to face adversity, the strength to tackle everyday problems, and sometimes, the will just to get out of bed in the morning. Looking for God in Messy Places by Jake Owensby is a book for anyone who has ever been frozen in place by loss or regret or endured suffering, cruelty, or rejection. Quite simply, it is a book about hope. How to find it. How to practice it. How to grow in it. How it makes life worth living. Because when we look for God in the middle of the mess, we find hope.

From the introduction
[This book is] for those whose struggles have been long and for those who are growing weary from heavy burdens. For those facing an unforeseen crisis or for those enduring a slow personal train wreck. For those whose throats have grown raw from crying for justice and for those whose wounds have gone unhealed. This is a book about hope, and I have written it especially for those who refuse to yield to discouragement and despair.
