God In My Everything by Ken ShigematsuKen Shigematsu shows that spiritual formation is more than just solitude and contemplative reflections. Spiritual formation happens in the everyday, in each and every moment of life. For those caught up in the busyness of work, family, and church, it often feels like time with God is just another thing on a crowded “to-do’ list. Ken explains how the time-tested spiritual practice of the “rule of life” can help bring busy people into a closer relationship with God. He shows how a personal rule of life can fit almost any vocation or life situation.

In God in My Everything, you will discover how to create and practice a life-giving, sustainable rhythm in the midst of your demanding life. If you long for a deeper spirituality but often feel that the busyness of life makes a close relationship with God challenging—and, at times, seemingly impossible—this book is for you.

Praise For God In My Everything:

“This is a book for the business executive, the mother of young children, the medical school student, the cat in the hat madcap juggler of 1000 things. A must-read for all busy people who have lost sight of Jesus and lost touch with themselves, and long to recover both. I need this book. My church needs this book. Ken has given the world a priceless gift.”
– Mark Buchanan, Pastor and author of Your God is Too Safe
