ATTEND: 40 Soul Stretches Toward God (Book Review)

ATTEND: 40 Soul Stretches Toward God

I received the ATTEND book to read and review. It says that it contains forty soul stretches toward God. In today’s world of constant busyness and always being on the go, there are some times that you just need to take a break, take a stretch and attend to your mind or heart. We are always told during stressful times to sit and take a breath. It works a lot better, in my opinion, if you’re taking a breath of God’s clean air and His Word.

The book by Laura Davis Werezak is themed around this bible verse:

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”Isaiah 30:15 (NIV)” link=”” color=”#800080″ class=”” size=”20″] “This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.”[/perfectpullquote]I sometimes long for rest, or just quiet. We are always connected to media, to being contacted, etc. Remember, back in the day when you couldn’t take your phone with you? You could actually go out and do your chores and be able to think about certain things and even just enjoy the peace and quiet. Now, with all of our electronics, we rarely get a minute of rest…even when we’re resting (that is, if you sleep with your phone!)

In this book, Laura teaches you how to ignite your soul with simple things, such as by opening a window or making your bed. Who usually thinks of anything else when they are doing those things? Well. let’s change that and see how God can work through us with simple chores like that. Stretch your soul and turn that light on in your eyes – be a way for others to see Christ through the simple things you do. It will make your life a whole lot better!

About the Book:

A young Christian writer presents a practical guide for reconnecting with God and practicing the presence of God in our frantically busy world today.

Our world is full of distractions that do not promote the health of individual souls. What can people do when they feel they have no time or ways to find God? In her new book ATTEND, Laura Davis Werezak reminds readers to encounter God through 40 brief everyday activities that they have been taking for granted, from opening a window to jotting down a dream. Modern life and technology increasingly render these activities obsolete, and readers who struggle to connect with God through “typical” devotions will discover depth in their everyday lives through each beautifully written exercise. Like the wisdom Brother Lawrence provided in his 17th century spiritual classic The Practice of the Presence of God, these daily reminders guide readers to appreciate God in our midst today.
