Today's advertising media often tries to convince you of what you should want. But what do you really need? Author Maria Goff invites readers to step out of accepting opinions, steps, programs, and second-best options and into discovering a life rich in legacy—a life lived with intentionality, passionate purpose, and a little planning.
Goff's Love Lives Here forwards a collection of stories that not only demonstrate a craving for lasting things that matter, but also includes the copious ways Maria and her husband, Bob, have navigated family their own way—without clear instructions or a road map—to embrace the beautiful, meaningful life God wanted for her and wants for all of us. Goff's stories inspire readers to explore and embrace God's intended purpose for living so that they, too, might create space to grow and live a life of love in action.
