Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

This is a book about discovering what we really need.
 
There are a lot of second-best options, but we weren’t made to live a second-best life. Finding what we actually need is different than what we are often offered. There are many books full of opinions, steps and programs. This isn’t one of them. This is about craving the things that matter. Things that don’t just work, but last.
 
In a life that may seem to be all fun and games with an endless supply of balloons, author Maria Goff shows how this life is also lived with intentionality, passionate purpose, and a little planning—all of which make a life rich in legacy. But she had to figure out the help she needed first in order to live the beautiful life God wanted for her and wants for us.
 
Love Lives Here is a collection of stories that include the ways Maria and her husband, Bob, navigated family their way, without clear instructions or a road map. It’s about what they learned to make their lives meaningful and whimsical and how they created a space for their family to grow together while they reached outward.

Author Bio

Maria Goff has made a career out of loving her family, serving her neighbors, and turning houses into homes. She is married to Bob Goff, whom she calls the most helpful and interesting man in the world. They’ve journeyed to Uganda, Nepal, and Northern Iraq to start schools for marginalized kids. They have three adult kids, who are starting families of their own. She lives in San Diego where she and Bob continue to dream about fun and adventures yet to be had with their growing family.

Editorial Reviews

"Maria has cultivated a beautiful heart and home where the Lord dwells richly. Love Lives Here shows us how we can experience amazing joy from the inside out. This book will change you and your family."

Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries

"Love Lives Here is every bit as warm and kind as you’d expect from an author known to most of the world as Sweet Maria. But it’s warmth does not diminish the truth it poignantly and consistently delivers. Reading like a memoir and a lesson book, this collection of vignettes does not stop at being a window into Sweet Maria Goff’s life, but rather, it’s an invitation to step right into her life. If you love the feeling of gaining a new best friend, read this book. If you’d ever wondered how a life some may consider quiet can incrementally impact the world, read this book."

Shelley Giglio, Chief Strategist, sixstepsrecords and Co-founder, Passion Conferences/Passion City Church

"Through every page, I loved discovering the powerful, mighty woman whose gentle voice and warm heart belies her strength."

Bianca Juarez Olthoff, Chief Storyteller for A21 and best-selling author of Play With Fire

"What a gift to read Love Lives Here and find within it a friend who is as authentic and inviting as Maria Goff. Through her earnest telling of the stories of her life, she provides greater meaning to all our lives. We were thrilled to read this book."

Donald Miller, New York Times bestselling author of Blue Like Jazz and Scary Close, with Betsy Miller

"Grace is a contagious force we all crave and Maria contains so much grace it floods you from just a short time with her. May these pages overwhelm you with God’s love and hope that Maria knows so well."

Jennie Allen, Founder of IF: Gathering and Author of Nothing to Prove

"You're going to enjoy reading a little more in these pages about how we can each make the places where we live, places where love lives too."

Jeremy Cowart, Photographer, and Founder of the Purpose Hotel

"Maria Goff is the wise, gracious, and witty mentor you always wanted. With hospitality and vulnerability, she invites you to sit in the coziest chair of her home, warm cup in hand, as she tells you her stories. And in the telling, you hear anew your own stories and God's stories too."

Katherine and Jay Wolf, co-authors & co-founders of Hope Heals

"This book is the hug you didn't know you've always needed. Maria's words of hope, purpose and vulnerability ring true in the deepest parts of my soul, inspiring me to live and love better."

Ryan O’Neal, author of Sleeping At Last

"In a moment in my life when I was desperately looking for direction, God used my friendship with Maria to rekindle in me a long-held vision for hospitality that I'd allowed to be obscured by far less important things. This beautiful book will do that same sacred work for so many people."

Shauna Niequist, New York Times bestselling author of Present Over Perfect and Savor

"Maria and her words are a gift to everyone searching for love, meaning and a place to belong. My life is brighter and my heart is bigger because of what I experienced on these pages. I cried. I smiled. I felt loved. It's an absolutely incredible book!"

Mike Foster, author of People of the Second Chance: A Guide To Bringing Life-Saving Love To The World
