Church of the Small Things: The Million Little Pieces That Make Up a Life (B&N Exclusive Signed Book) by Melanie Shankle

This Barnes and Noble exclusive edition is autographed by the author and features an exclusive list of the author’s favorite small things plus bullet journaling pages in the back.

Is my ordinary, everyday life actually significant? Is it okay to be fulfilled by the simple acts of raising kids, working in an office, and cooking chicken for dinner?

It’s been said, “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away.” The pressure of that can be staggering as we spend our days looking for that big thing that promises to take our breath away. Meanwhile, we lose sight of the small significance of fully living with every breath we take.

Melanie Shankle, New York Times bestselling author and writer at The Big Mama Blog tackles these questions head on in her fourth book, Church of the Small Things. Easygoing and relatable, she speaks directly to the heart of women of all ages who are longing to find significance and meaning in the normal, sometimes mundane world of driving carpool to soccer practice, attending class on their college campus, cooking meals for their family, or taking care of a sick loved one.

The million little pieces that make a life aren’t necessarily glamorous or far-reaching. But God uses some of the smallest, most ordinary acts of faithfulness—and sometimes they look a whole lot like packing lunch. 

Through humorous stories told in her signature style, full of Frito pie, best friends, the love of her Me-Ma and Pa-Pa, the unexpected grace that comes when we quit trying to measure up, and a little of the best TV has to offer, Melanie helps women embrace what it means to live a simple, yet incredibly meaningful life and how to find all the beauty and laughter that lies right beneath the surface of every moment.

Each and every moment of life can have profound effect on us and on others. In this book, the author shares experiences that made me laugh and made me cry. I also saw myself in many of the situations she shares about. I kept saying, "Me, too, me, too!" This is a fantastic book of personal stories which remind us the little things in life are often more important than the big things. Great book to give as a gift. I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher and this is my personal honest opinion.

Funny, moving, insightful...this is my favorite Shankle book so far! It was full of wisdom about being faithful and living fully present in the small moments of life, and it also made me laugh, which is always a plus. It solidified in my mind that more often than not, its the ordinary faithfulness, the staying instead of going and the hidden jobs that have no platform, that make a persons character.
