I wish I could remember how I first ran across Jerusalem Greer. I have been following and linking to her blog for years. Jerusalem is definitely a kindred spirit. I have enjoyed learning about her and her family over the years. As a Sunday School teacher, I often looked to Jerusalem for inspiration on how to celebrate different moments in the liturgical calendar. I was super excited when she released her first book, A HOMEMADE YEAR: THE BLESSING OF COOKING, CRAFTING, AND COMING TOGETHER. This book gave me so many wonderful ideas about how to celebrate different holidays and bring faith-based activities into my home. Another thing I love about Jerusalem is that she and I seem to have shared vision of how we would like our lives to look. She is further down the path than I am but I dream of a farm or home in the country and a simpler life for my family. While Jerusalem has touched on her own journey on her blog, she is now exploring it in further depth with her new book AT HOME IN THIS LIFE: FINDING PEACE AT THE CROSSROADS OF UNRAVELED DREAMS AND BEAUTIFUL SURPRISES. I feel like I am at a crossroads in my life right now and I cannot wait to read this book! I just finished Shauna Niequist's PRESENT OVER PERFECT and I feel that this is the next book I need to read.
In Jerusalem's own words:
"At Home in this Life is the story of how everything I thought would make me happy came undone, and then how I found a way to make myself at home in this beautiful, messy, amazingly tender, completely unbalanced life, by imperfectly practicing one spiritual discipline at a time—smack in the middle of raising kids, mending the sweaters and burning the bread."
