Review: Sacred Mundane by:Kari Patterson

 Sacred Mundane: How to Find Freedom, Purpose, and Joy
About the Book:
What if the key to changing your life--and yourself--is already in your hand?

So many women struggle with what to do with their daily lives. They feel trapped in everyday drudgery and disappointment, in dull domestic duties, and in mundane jobs they despise. Where is the abundant, purposeful life they were promised?

Kari Patterson shows readers the truth: in each unremarkable life lies an opportunity to see, know, love, and be utterly transformed by a God who meets everyone right where they are. Instead of stepping away from real life to find God, Patterson equips women with a six-step practice to move further in and meet Him in the humdrum moments of everyday existence. And when a woman's inner being is truly changed by the sacred, everything in her world changes too--right down to tackling the dirty dishes.

Through entertaining narrative, candid real-life stories, Bible study, and practical instruction, Sacred Mundane guides individuals or small groups to discover the beautiful sacredness in the lives they already lead. Women who long to grow in God and make a real difference in the world--no matter how small--will reach eagerly for this book and the radical transformation it offers.

"Our daily routine, with its mundane tasks and mindless repetition, is ultimately an offering of worship to God. What a great truth from a great God!"
--Ann Byle, author of The Making of a Christian Bestseller and coauthor of Devotions for the Soul Surfer

My Review:
 Everyday life can become so boring, especially if you are a stay at home mother. Taking care of your home as well as children can be so daunting, time consuming, and is depressing. The author wants us to examine the world around us, really examine it through God's eyes. And we need to start seeing more opportunities and love around us especially when we get down and bored.

 This book is perfect for small groups because the author has offered so much of herself. Whether its the Bible objective of it or through the lessons she herself learned through this whole process. Sacred Mundane takes us on a journey to find self and to find it with God as our guide because otherwise it would be hard to see the good in anything.

 The author is write when she says that the good we do each day is worship to the Father. We should do it to the best of our ability and do it with a kind heart.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. All opinions are my own.
