Christ came so that we could have life to the full. But what does this really mean for everyday life? It is so easy to become disheartened by the sadness or just bogged down by the monotony of life. We have a constant ache reminding us that we don't belong in this fallen world.

Thirty Thousand Days offers an opportunity to think about and savor the reality of Heaven - of finally going Home. This special book draws your mind irresistibly to Christ and invites you to revel, with a childlike excitement, in the salvation He has secured for us.

Endorsements

Catherine Morgan passionately and creatively guides us in the true journey of a life that matters, that counts, that satisfies. She calls us to love God and love others, just as Jesus did. And she helps us grab hold of a vision that will sustain us - an eternal perspective for the days of our lives.
Judy Douglass, Author of Letters to My Children: Secrets of Success

Thirty Thousand Days is a beautifully crafted reminder that our days matter. Even in the contexts of full-time ministry, we find it staggeringly challenging to maintain the urgency and dependency that is needed in a life sold out to the Savior. Be warned - this book will not leave you the same! Your eyes will shift toward the eternal, your heart will align with His, and your love for people will be the overflow.
D & S, Missionaries to North Africa

Thirty Thousand Days is beseeching us to live a life shaped by the eternity that awaits those who trust Jesus. In these pages, Catherine Morgan demonstrates a grasp of the Kingdom of God, and she has the life to back it up.
Jay Williams, Pastor, Faith Baptist Church, Peshtigo, Wisconsin

Catherine Morgan's writing reveals her passion for God's people to live purposefully this side of eternity as they long for their eternal home.

I relished the truths in this must-read book. Catherine's words challenged me to live now focused on eternity. Time is short and there is great purpose for each day God gives us!
Jen McShea, Stay at Home Mom, Greensboro, North Carolina

    The average human being lives approximately 30,000 days which sounded like a long stretch of time until I did the math and discovered that, as of today, I will have lived 20,005 of mine. Catherine L. Morgan envisions these Thirty Thousand Days as a journey home, traveling on a rattle trap train toward a sure and certain future of abundance.

    In the meantime, however, there is waiting, and there is heartbreak, and no matter how well we try to manage our journey, there is always regret. This following life, then, is one in which we look boldly at Solomons cynical Old Testament pronouncement that all is vanity and a chasing after the wind all the while trusting in Jesus promise of an abundant life.

    Living Well

    Offering her own wisdom alongside that of others, Catherine lays down a cobblestone path of words for this journey gleaned from her personal reading of a broad range of authors and thinkers. She speaks out of the context of experiences gained through inner-city ministry with her family in an impoverished section of the sprawling Denver metro-area. Far from Chicken Soup for the Soul, her conclusions are a bracing cup of strong tea no sugar.

    If we want to live well within the gift of our thirty-thousand days:

    We will walk purposefully.

    We will offer up our hearts to care passionately.

    We will open our hands to give generously and unclench our grasp from around the things of Earth.

    We will love deeply because it is commanded not because it is easy.

    We will stand firmly in a dangerous faith.

    Bold Questions

    Pursuing the things over which Christ presides is a chasing after light, a darkness fighting strategy if ever there was one. And this is the gift of viewing our days on this planet as a temporary prelude to a glorious eternity. Childlike, we will ask questions that promote a bold following:

    Why not read Psalm 37 with a reckless abandon? What would it be like to wholeheartedly trust, dwell, do good, and delight? Can I even imagine a life without fretting?

    What if my present circumstances are a canvas against which the glory of God will be radically put on display? What if this current set of troubles is light and momentary after all?

    Am I able to view my marriage or my singleness as a mission? Can I hold my church membership in the same light as a gym membership in which I expect to sweat, to strain, to run an extra mile? Let this thought marinate to adjust your perceptions on community and the local church:

    I am an alien and stranger here in the thick of a great battle. If I am engaged in this battle, I will need the refuge of the church. Love will sustain me. If I do not perceive this need, maybe I am not really engaging the fight.

    Leaning into the truth that I am mightily loved by God, that He delights in my delight, I am emboldened to discover where this great love might lead. Catherine points out a pattern in the book of Acts that Im eager to see reproduced in my life and in the lives of those I love: The disciples prayed, and then they were amazed. They prayed, and then they were amazed.

    With thirty thousand days ticking by so quickly in this journey, I stand ready to be amazed.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Catherine L. Morgan
Located in: Aurora, CO
Submitted: August 23, 2016

    Tell us a little about yourself.  After college, I joined staff with Cru's inner city ministry here in the Denver area. Somehow I have both a great love for the city and a deep desire to live in the middle of nowhere. I helped my best friend (my husband, Michael) plant Wellspring Community Church over a decade ago. We have three fantastic kids whom I homeschool.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I've always been challenged to think eternally and spent a lot of hours delighting in the reality of eternity. But when we hit a rough patch in ministry, that reality became all the more important to me, a source of deep comfort, strength, and hope. I hope it will be the same for others, too!

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Hope. Joy. Astonishment at the goodness of God and the beauties of Heaven. I pray that thinking this through would motivate people to give their all for Jesus, who's given His all for us.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  It gave me an opportunity to study the various facets of my life from an eternal perspective. I asked "what does it mean for ___ that this life is very, very short in the scheme of things?"

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  So many! I'll be reading and rereading C.S. Lewis for a lifetime. I love hearing voices from other eras, so Classics of Christian Devotion has been fun. I love missionary stories, because those guys knew how to live abundantly more than just about anyone. And I am a total literary fiction nerd.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I can't wait to meet you someday -- if not here, then when we get Home!
