Living In Little Ways

I continue to be amazed how dense life can be with two teens and a 9 year old. The combination of cultivating family life, accomplishing work, serving others in community and maintaining creative vitality is a challenge at the best of times.

As we look toward the future of the Church, we must continue to form and reform paradigms of Kingdom living that embrace the venture of Monday breakfast with the kids as being on par with ventures that impact global poverty.

Life is meant to be well-lived, in both the near and far, in both the large and small. Therese de Liseux (the “little Theresa” that Mother Theresa named herself after) continually calls us back to the “little way” of following Jesus – small deeds, done with great love, will change the world.


Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
