Waking Up Slowly (Library Edition) : Spiritual Lessons from My Dog, My Kids, Critters, and Other Unexpected Places
Author: Dave Burchett
What if every day we are stubbing our toes on the sacred and not realizing it?
We are the most connected culture in history, but we are arguably the most disconnected from the awareness of God’s presence. Waking Up Slowly is author Dave Burchett’s personal challenge to live in the moment and find the everyday joys we miss when we live in disconnected busyness.
Dave Burchett sets out to discover how life might be different if he awoke each morning consciously looking for the easy-to-miss postcards from God. Waking Up Slowly is an intimate, warm, and touching story of learning how to more fully appreciate each moment. During his journey, the author finds regular reminders of daily joys with his Labrador pal, Maggie, often at his side.
Waking Up Slowly challenges the listener to recognize, appreciate, and celebrate the ways God reveals Himself daily. Through regular people, everyday situations, cuddly creatures, and stunning nature, God’s presence is real and discoverable. We just need to wake up to it.
