Product Description

What if the key to changing your life - and yourself - is already in your hand?

So many women struggle with what to do with their daily lives. They feel trapped in everyday drudgery and disappointment, in dull domestic duties, and in mundane jobs they despise. Where is the abundant, purposeful life they were promised?

Kari Patterson shows readers the truth: in each unremarkable life lies an opportunity to see, know, love, and be utterly transformed by a God who meets everyone right where they are. Instead of stepping away from real life to find God, Patterson equips women with a six-step practice to move further in and meet Him in the humdrum moments of everyday existence. And when a woman's inner being is truly changed by the sacred, everything in her world changes too - right down to tackling the dirty dishes.

Through entertaining narrative, candid real-life stories, Bible study, and practical instruction, Sacred Mundane guides individuals or small groups to discover the beautiful sacredness in the lives they already lead. Women who long to grow in God and make a real difference in the world - no matter how small - will reach eagerly for this book and the radical transformation it offers.

Editorial Reviews

“Kari is a powerful example that God will do amazing things in our lives—if we let him. God calls each of us to a bigger, greater life than we ever imagined, but only when we allow our stories to be part of God’s great redemption story. Read this book and discover how God transformed the lives of one woman and her family when they sought to follow him.” -- Richard Stearns, president of World Vision US and author of The Hole in Our Gospel

“The temptation to divide life into the sacred and the mundane attacks most women every day of our lives. Sacred Mundane points out the heresy of this duality and provides hope that all of life can be valued as sacred. Kari is a mom in the trenches who wonderfully weaves strong theology with daily, down-to-earth application in an engaging and enjoyable way.” -- Chaundel Holladay, coauthor of Love-Powered Parenting

“Kari Patterson has a way with words, and oh how we need them! More than ever, voices all around tell us we need to dream big dreams and pursue big pursuits, but in Sacred Mundane Kari so beautifully reminds us that each of our days, if given their due, are quiet opportunities for a faith-filled life.” -- Christine Hoover, author of From Good to Grace

“You had me with the title. Sacred Mundane stitches together vulnerable, nitty-gritty stories of life, offering practical lessons that inspire readers to seek after God’s will—on their knees. Kari Patterson is as genuine and warm as every word in this delightful book, and she invites readers to share her journey to treasure every moment as monumental.” -- Cornelia Seigneur, Oregonian journalist and author of WriterMom Tales

Sacred Mundane delivers a message that brings relief to women’s souls—we are favored, loved, and chosen by the God of the universe. And as recipients of such favor, we have the awesome chance to draw closer to him each and every moment of our days. Kari’s words, full of grace, humor, and practical application, invite us to transform the lenses through which we see the world, through which we see God—through which we see everything.” -- Jamie Martin, author of Steady Days,editor of the popular blogs Simple Homeschool, Steady Moms

“Kari Patterson has written a book that all moms need to read. Sacred Mundane taps into our struggles and our pains, while offering us hope and strength to face each day with God’s perspective. Our daily routine, with its mundane tasks and mindless repetition, is ultimately an offering of worship to God. What a great truth from a great God! Thanks, Kari, for enlightening all of us who struggle with the occasional drudgery of life and motherhood.” -- Ann Byle, author of The Making of a Christian Bestseller and Devotions for the Soul Surfer

Sacred Mundane brings much-needed truth, hope, and inspiration for the weary-woman’s soul. For all of us entrenched in the mundane details of life, Sacred Mundane reads like a warm embrace, encouraging women to live whole lives of freedom, purpose, and joy. A must-read!” -- Angela Davis, founder of the popular blog Frugal Living NW

“We want God to change us. Heal us. But like Naaman, we foolishly object to the way God wants to make us clean. This husband? These kids? This noisy, messy, sticky life? In Sacred Mundane, Kari Patterson—in her winsome, inspiring way—causes the muddy waters of daily life to actually seem inviting! For as we dip ourselves repeatedly into the things we wish we could change or escape or skip, these are the waters that God uses to make us clean and whole.” -- Shannon Popkin, author of Control Girl
