i’m super excited about how many of you are excited about the unfurling! so today i thought i’d share some facts about the ebook.
what’s it about?
it’s a lot like my blog, in that it explores life and faith and the intersection. i like to think of it as an examination of the adventure that following Jesus can be as you learn to let Him lead. and as a 20-something who’s living a very different life than she imagined as a teenager, it’s an exploration of how i had to learn to make my own adventure in the midst of what was boring and familiar.
how’s it different than your blog?
the unfurling was a more formal exercise in what i like to call poetical prose, which isn’t terribly far off from some of the language i use on my blog and which i tried regularly to incorporate into my college papers in order to make a critical analysis simultaneously function as a work of art. but it’s more studied in this poetical prose, an exercise in utilizing language as a dart, pinpointing the exact meaning of a word or phrase, and yet as a paintbrush, blending ideas and unconventional words together to create a compelling picture of the adventure that is learning to follow Christ wholeheartedly.
who’s it for?
anyone who’s lost, stuck, broken, wondering, yearning for more. anyone who’s trying to figure out more about this Jesus and what it means to follow a God whose ways are inexplicable and often offensive.
why did you write it?
i wrote it for people like me, people who feel trapped in a life season and learning to make their way to Jesus in the midst of that. i’ve spent this past year rebelling in various stages of blatancy against the idea of living with my parents, and yet twice in the past few months i’ve found myself inexplicably grateful for the fact that i’m here. there are days it hasn’t been easy, but it’s been refining, and because of that, it has been good. learning to live flourishing is the challenge we all face when we’re found in a season we don’t like or understand, and that, that, is the unfurling.
got any other questions? leave them in the comments and i’ll answer them in another post soon!
