Today, I’d like to share a few quotes I’ve found in a book called Here, Now by Kate Merrick. I’m hoping I can share a review of this book on my book reviews site soon, but it’s not written yet. I did get this book as a for-review copy, so I will be reviewing it soon on Goodreads and Amazon.

I finished Here, Now last week, and highly recommend it. Lots of great thoughts here! I’d almost like to have a physical copy of this, just so I can see how it all fits together on paper. It’s good. And yes, these aren’t all the quotes I have, but I’ve managed to pare it down to five. I hope at least one blesses you!
“Slow down, take in your life, find the beauty, and see God moving all around you—it’s worth it.” —Jamie Ivey
“God is willing to speak to and lead us more than we are willing to be spoken to and led.” —Kate Merrick
“Prayer is the beginning of presence, the beginning of peace, the beginning of contentment.” —Kate Merrick
“We practice presence by asking him to show us just how near he really is, how he sees us, and believing what he says rather than our own feelings, impressions, or emotions.” —Kate Merrick
“Today is all you have; it’s all anyone has.” —A woman who lost her son to leukemia
If you would like to have a little more encouragement from Kate Merrick herself, I’d recommend you check out the book these quotes came from: Here, Now.
How has God been speaking to you this week?
