Do you feel like you’re stuck? Do you feel alone? Do you live in fear that your struggles might push others away? Do you wonder if your faith is a fraud because of the emptiness in your soul? Are you weary of trying to play by the rules and pretend that everything is okay? In Love Well, Jamie George confronts the popular heresy that God’s children are meant to live a life absent of pain, sorrow, or conflict. On the contrary, Jamie passionately describes brokenness as a divine gift and a necessary God-ordained path to experiencing true joy and genuine redemption. With surprising transparency, Jamie shares his personal journey of getting unstuck and provides reassuring comfort for those looking to move beyond their pain toward a life of connection and grace.

What People are Saying About This
In Love Well, George offers us a spiritual harvest of connection—with God, ourselves, and others—so we can wade through our stuck places and start moving again.
I've always said that the best teachers are storytellers, and Jamie George is one of the best storytellers I know. I've been blessed by hearing him tell his stories in person for years. Now it's your turn!
Jamie's book arrived at a time in my life when I'm learning the difference between loving others and loving myself. What's selfish? What's self-care? What's unconditional? Help! Let's be honest, when are any of us not absolutely dying to love and be loved well?
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
"Living Life Unrehearsed and Unstuck." Isn't that a wonderful idea? Imagine if we could be done with the pressure to plan our performance and the temptation to angle every conversation to protect ourselves. Imagine if we could just live in the moment without panicking over the next step or regretting that this sweet slice of time will have to end so soon. Imagine if we lived like it was true when the Bible said "It is for freedom that He set us free." Jamie George has written Love Well to help launch us on the journey to wholeness and happy holiness. (By the way, who doesn't desire to live like that? And if I were living a life like that, think of how many people would be attracted to the Gospel that produced it inside of me!) There are sections here with titles like "Open Yourself up to Goodness," "The Hidden Deep," "Touch Someone's Life," and "Love is Immeasurable." Don't those sound great? Jamie tells a lot of stories in this book, because as Muriel Rukeyser said, "The Universe is made up of stories, not atoms." These are stories about being stuck and feeling trapped and emptied of all hope and meaning. These are stories about suddenly discovering the human beings all around you, waiting to be loved. These are stories about risking your heart in a world where hearts get broken all the time, but where God put his own Heart right in the middle of the mess. As Jackson Browne sang in Running on Empty- Everyone I know, everywhere I go, people need some reason to believe. This book is a fine one to encourage you. Stuck? It's not without hope. Lift up your face. God is here. And an un-stuck life is possible for you and me. Thank you David C. Cook for my review copy.
