Overview

Every place in your house -- the living room, the kitchen, the bedroom, and even the bathroom -- gives you a chance to grow in God's grace, if only you know how to recognize how He reveals Himself to you there. With a rich awareness of God's all-encompassing love, in this book author Thomas Howard takes you on a spiritual tour through your own home and shows you how everything in it can lead you to God.

Howard writes with a fervent devotion that encompasses all of revealed truth: he shows how, even in your daily activities, you can meet the same God who came to Israel in the terror and fire in the Tabernacle, and who sacrificed Himself for us in Christ. Howard sees, even in the most commonplace actions and places, chances to love and serve God and to discern the activity of His gentle hand.

So take up this book to find out how cooking and cleaning, family dinners, and all the other actions that make up the fabric of your day can actually disclose God's presence to you. Your daily life -- and your devotional life -- will be forever transformed by this breathtaking look at how lovingly God awaits you ... even in the smallest things.
