Everyday Worship: An 8-week Devotional for Delighting the Heart of God 

In a world where so much demands our attention, it can be easy to allow our busyness to take priority. Becoming too distracted to see, we can lose our awe. Why does that matter? Because in Hebrews 12:28, we read that acceptable worship is offered to God “with reverence and awe.”

Everyday Worship is a resource for those who have lost their awe or anyone else who desires to grow in their offering of worship. More than daily readings alone, this book includes personal reflection and practice opportunities. Each week the reader is encouraged in a specific area of worship and then given space to spend time with God as they learn and grow. As well, journaling pages are provided to help with this crucial growth process.
