Glory Happening: Finding the Divine in Everyday Places

 
“A stunner…every sentence is a feast for the senses.” —Rachel Held Evans

When you have an experience and tell the story of that experience to someone, something sacred happens inside of you. That experience doesn’t have to be an extravagant moment, but it can be beautiful, nonetheless. And as you store up all those stories and share them, you grow your world’s boundaries. You build community and remind yourself that every moment of your life counts for something holy, good, and glorious.

The search for glory will bring freedom and a fresh perspective to whatever season you happen to find yourself in. Glory Happening is a book of stories and prayers that remind you to take a closer look at your everyday circumstances, to find the magical beauty in everyday experiences. It is an invitation to live deeply into every moment with the expectation that something good will find you at the end of the day. And once you experience glory, you have words to speak, a prayer to pray, and a story to tell. And so glory grows from person to person, and community is created around the reality that God is truly in our midst.

Reviews

“In this book, Kaitlin Curtice walks with us into the heart of glory, asking what it means to find sacred spaces in everything.” –Brian McLaren, author of The Great Spiritual Migration

“Kaitlin B. Curtice was born with a set of eyes that see beyond the ordinary. She sees beauty and holiness in mess, mayhem, and monotonous routine.” –Rachel Macy Stafford, author of Hands Free Mama and Only Love Today

“Stop. Take a deep breath and pour a cup of coffee. This is the kind of book you will want to sit with for a while, the kind you will return to again and again. With the insights of a prophet and the attention of a poet, Kaitlin Curtice invites the reader to see the world fresh, in all its everyday glory. You will never look at a sink of dishes, a mound of dough, a game of Rummy, or the family dog the same way again. Glory Happening is a stunner of a debut, every sentence a feast for the senses. By the time you reach the last page, you will have kicked off your shoes, knowing you tread on holy ground.” —Rachel Held Evans, Author, A Year of Biblical Womanhood and Searching for Sunday
