About Everywhere Holy: Seeing Beauty, Remembering Your Identity, and Finding God Right Where You Are
Paperback: 224 pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (December 3, 2019)
Popular writer and blogger Kara Lawler shows women how to embrace the sacred in mundane, ordinary life–and in the process, discover themselves.
Life doesn’t have to be lived on grand mountaintops for it to be meaningful. We can see God at work right where we are: in our ordinary and mundane routines, in the faces of our family and friends, and–especially–in nature.
Kara Lawler speaks to the hearts of those who find themselves lost in the midst of their chaotic schedules and weary attempts to be all that is expected of them. Everywhere Holy addresses our deepest struggles, including:
- How to feel joy, despite depression and anxiety
- Dealing with hardships and understanding unconditional love
- How to view life as an adventure, even when that feels too hard
- How to feel more connected, more grateful, and more at peace
In beautiful prose, Lawler describes the unique sacredness found in God’s creation and offers 15 inspiring insights for cultivating it day-to-day. She encourages you to make this lifestyle change through the observance of small acts. In so doing, you will discover a holy space that honors God and the life you’ve been given–and will discover yourself and your unique place in the holy that is everywhere, whether it’s in the woods behind your house or in the face of a stranger on a bus in a busy city. No matter where you are, there is holy free for the taking.

Through my writing, I hope to help people see beauty, remember their own identities, and find God, right where they are. It seems hard, really, in the shuffle that makes up this beautiful (but not always easy) life. How can we even focus on beauty or God, with full lives and the current state of the world? Quite honestly, that’s a struggle that has left me out of breath and on my knees. But, by doing this–by noticing beauty and looking for God all around–, I believe we really can discover who we are and who God meant for us to be. I try to see the beauty in the mundane, the extraordinary in the ordinary, the holy in the everyday, and as St. Ignatius said, “God in all things.” Join me on this pursuit of holiness amidst the chaos of an everyday.
