WonderstruckIf you’re like me, sometimes waiting for Christmas morning feels impossible. I’ve been known to pick up boxes just to get a better feel for the content’s weight. I’ve shaken boxes in hopes sound will give away the secret. And I’ve even pulled out a measuring tape (when no one is looking) to better guess the gift. (Don’t tell my husband, Leif!)

This year it’s even harder to contain my excitement. Wonderstruck: Awaken to the Nearness of God releases Christmas Day. That means Christmas can’t come soon enough. I’m counting down the days.

Each day, I’m working through final edits, layout, proofing—catching those oopsies!-that-almost-slipped-through and more. The book and Bible study is almost ready for you!

In Wonderstruck, I share how no matter who you are or where you’ve been—if you’ve lived a life where you’ve seen it all, done it all, or feel like you’re past it all—God still longs to take your breath away.

Wonderstruck is a personal invitation for you to toss back the covers, climb out of bed, and drink in the fullness of life. Through this book, you will learn how to:

  • Recognize the presence of God in the midst of your routine
  • Unearth extraordinary moments on ordinary days
  • Develop a renewed passion for God
  • Identify what’s holding you back in prayer
  • Discover peace in knowing you’re wildly loved

If you follow on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, you’ll notice we changed the hashtag we’re using from #Wonderstruck to #LiveWonderstruck. We want this to be a reminder of the invitation to live each day awake and aware of the wonder of God all around you.

Now I have a hunch some of you are like me. You can’t wait for the Christmas release either! That’s why I’d like to invite you to be one of an exclusive group of people on the planet to read Wonderstruck before anyone else.

We’re giving you the opportunity to win an advanced readers copy of Wonderstruck. All you have to do to win is tell us one place where you’ve seen the wonder of God in your life this week! And if you’re up for sharing the message of Wonderstruck with friends—through Facebook, Twitter, or your own blog, even better. So go ahead, post a comment on this webpage to win. We’ll pick the winner next Friday.

Congratulations to this week’s winner: Amy!! Thank you all for participating!
