At Home in this Life

Finding Peace at the Crossroads of Unraveled Dreams and Beautiful Surprises

Jerusalem Jackson Greer, Foreword by Shauna Niequist

  • Format:Paperback
  • Pages:208



In the midst of beauty and mess, chaos and monotony, celebrations and mourning, Jerusalem Greer tells her story of finding redemption in what is rather than what could be, by practicing the presence of God through rediscovering ancient contemplative teachings and practices (solitude, study, work, prayer, and service) and pairing them with domestic arts (baking, gardening, sewing).

Jerusalem writes with a raw honesty that reassures readers they are not alone in feeling not good enough, not wise enough, not Christian enough to figure out God's plans.

"At Home in this Life is the story of how everything I thought would make me happy came undone, and then how I found a way to make myself at home in this beautiful, messy, amazingly tender, completely unbalanced life, by imperfectly practicing one spiritual discipline at a time—smack in the middle of raising kids, mending the sweaters and burning the bread." — Jerusalem Jackson Greer

In addition to being a writer, Jerusalem is also a crafter, former pastor and blogger. She lives with her husband and two sons in Greenbrier Arkansas. As a family they are attempting to lives a slower version of the modern life. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Jerusalem is active on Facebook and Pinterest and regularly posts on her blog "Slow Living in a Fast World" where she records what she calls her "beautymess" attempts at living a sacramental life.
