Description

Think you don't have time or space for spiritual stuff? That intimacy with God is impossible?
Here's how-in the life you already live-you can make time and space for God.

GODSPACE offers seven practices that help busy Christians pay attention to God. They help us align our sometimes messy daily lives with our spirituality. And they strengthen our most important relationships, giving our lives meaning, significance, and purpose.
It's not holding a set of beliefs, reading the Bible, going to church, or even praying that determines how we connect with God. It's our pace of life. When we live hurried and distracted lives, we miss the chance to experience the intimacy we desire with God.
Experience God more deeply and live more joyfully by exploring these seven spiritual practices:
  • Sabbath
  • Hospitality
  • Worship
  • Simplicity
  • Gratitude
  • Generosity
  • Critical thinking
With abundant wit, humorous anecdotes, and authentic sharing of her own joys and struggles, KERI WYATT KENT guides us toward a deeper and more meaningful faith in the midst of our overcrowded, cluttered lives. A lay pastor at Willow Creek Community Church, where she has been a member for thirty years, Kent is the author of eleven books. She speaks at events and retreats around the country.

Praise For GodSpace: Embracing the Inconvenient Adventure of Intimacy with God

"We have filled our homes with stuff, our calendars with activities, and our hearts with a desire for more. Keri Wyatt Kent's GODSPACE invites us to declutter our hearts, our homes, and our calendars in order to make room for the inconvenient wonder of God's presence. Kent tells stories from her own life and offers practical suggestions on how we can open ourselves up to God's work in our homes, our communities, and the world. With humor, insight, and concrete examples, Keri Wyatt Kent has written a book that encourages me to make meaningful changes that will enable less space for disappointment and more space for God."
