God encouraged me to seek him in the ordinary, common places of life: the sweet curve of a grandson’s cheek, the soft dimple of a baby’s hand. In a tomato hanging heavy on the vine, in the wind rattling through windows and in the tree rooted. I found him in the chronicles of Scripture, in the warm strength of my husband’s hand and the diverse beauty of my daughters. I have experienced his Presence in the severity of pain and the levity of joy—God made room for me to see Him in the most ordinary of ordinaries. Growing Room: For Life in Tight Places is a gathering of my experiences in these places with Him. The stories are not a linear telling; they do not string along, rolling one into another. Instead they move from chamber to chamber, eventually opening out into a bigger story—a greater shell to hold more of his grace.
