Scoot Over and Make Some Room:
Creating a Space Where Everyone Belongs
I thought about you while I wrote each of the words in this book. I thought about where you might be on this journey, we call life. About the places you have yet to go. About the places you are afraid to step into.
I thought about my kids, Macyn, Truly and August. I thought about how I never intended to be a shouter of worth. How I never thought I’d be writing books to show the world just how wonderful it can be when we shift things in our lives in order to make room for everyone to belong. How much richer my life is because of the intentional choices I’ve made to do life with those who are different than me.
The truth is, in a world of divisions and margins, those who act, look, and grow a little differently are all too often shoved aside. So, I wrote this book, Scoot Over and Make Some Room which is part inspiring narrative and part encouraging challenge for us all to listen and learn from those we're prone to ignore.
My hope and prayer is this book will challenge us to look at our lives, our tables, our living-room sofas, and see the ways in which we need to make room for those who we have been prone to ignore, to judge or to dismiss. And in so doing, discovering a richer and more meaningful life.
This book is your invitation to a table where space is unlimited, and every voice can be heard. Because I believe with all of my heart, when you open your life to the wild beauty of every unique individual, you'll discover your own colorful soul and the extraordinary, abundant heart of God.
This book will be out in June of 2019 but it is available for pre-sale RIGHT NOW! Which means you can head over to Amazon and pre-order your copy today and then while you’re at it, order one for all the parents, educators, church goers, and humans in your life.
So thankful to be on this journey with you.
Shouting their worth,
