"Let Us Keep the Feast: Living the Church Year at Home"
Our days and our weeks are part of God’s created order; the sun setting and rising, the regular shift from work to rest: all of these form a rhythm for our lives, a rhythm that the church has historically observed through a set calendar of feasts and fasts.
Maybe you’ve used an Advent calendar to count down the days till Christmas. Or you might have recently tried giving up something for Lent. These practices are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the riches of the Christian church year.
Why do we celebrate seasons in the church? How can we do it well? And what does it mean for you?
Thousands of Christians wrestle with these questions, and others like them, every year — even every season. In this series of books, these questions are answered!
Written for Christians who want to embrace the historic traditions of the church, and whose desire is to bring them into their daily lives and homes, Let Us Keep the Feast seeks to provide explanation, guidance, and resources for richer, fuller practices for living the Church Year at home.

I also had the honor of editing "Not Alone", a collection on personal essays about infertility and miscarriage.
About the book:
Our society understands how terrible the loss of a child is when that child is out of the womb, but what about when a child dies before birth? Or what about the emptiness that comes when a very-much-wanted child is never even conceived? These quiet, private losses are hard for those who have not experienced them to understand. And these losses leave those who have suffered them feeling alone in their grief.
Not Alone: A Literary and Spiritual Companion for Those Confronted with Infertility and Miscarriage is a resource both for those who have suffered through these experiences and for their friends and relatives, who want to understand what their loved ones are going through.
This collection contains true stories that are:
* sensitive, and yet honest
* angry and raw, but not despairing
* unique, and yet relatable.
The contributors to this book are male and female, old and young, some who eventually had children and some who never did, and yet despite their differences, they share a common grief and a common faith.
No experience of miscarriage and infertility is like any other, yet by reading these painful and hope-filled stories, you'll be comforted by knowing there are others who understand the journey you're on, the loss you've suffered, and you will find that even though your loss is uniquely yours, you are not alone.
Get a copy of "Not Alone" at Amazon or at Barnes and Noble or at the publisher's website.
