As women busy about our work, we often leave God to the spiritual categories of our lives, seeing our daily occupations as just work. In Everyday Worship, biblical counselor Trisha Wilkerson addresses the underlying heart issues that keep us from seeing all of life lived for God's glory. The challenge of connecting work to worship is as old as the story of Mary and Martha, Wilkerson teaches. The solution, though, is not to choose between worship and work, but rather to worship in our work. As we depend on God, find our confidence in Him, and work as stewards by his grace, our hearts are filled with joy.

Endorsements 

"This devotional book offers plenty of heart checks to assess not only the work that we do, but also our motivations and aims as we go about our work ... My work looks and feels like a pile of never-ending tasks. Trisha has helped me to see that those piles are actually opportunities to worship the Lord of glory who calls us to do everything in humility, without complaining, and heartily as unto the Lord, in dependence upon Him to accomplish His work in and through me." - Kristie Anyabwile ~ Pastor's wife, Mother of 3, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

"Biblically-saturated, refreshingly honest, and practically helpful, this book is a gift of encouragement and inspiration to women like myself who want to work heartily while being motivated and sustained by the life-giving grace of Christ." - Keri Seavey ~ Pastor’s Wife and Biblical Counselor, Living Water Community Church, Vancouver, Washington

"These personal insights clothed in a practical and spiritual way are refreshing. This timely book should focus our minds on the Lord Jesus Christ so that we worship God 'whatever, whenever, however'." - Carine MacKenzie ~ Best-selling author of children’s books, Inverness, Scotland
