Overview
Are you ready to release your control of needing to be everything for everyone?

In Choosing REAL, author Bekah Pogue walks with us into life's unplanned circumstances--specifically frantic schedules, pain, transition, feelings of unworthiness, loneliness, and tension--and reminds us it is in these.very.moments where God invites us to notice, respond, and even celebrate an authentic relationship with Him through every.little.detail despite our own efforts or work. The result? A connection between real life and faith so that they are one and the same.

When we enjoy God's company first--the heavenly Creator will transform our minds to view our schedules, work, relationships, parenting, and responsibilities as opportunities to dance in life's storms and honor how beautiful simple can be. Better than our ideal party, it is He who is inviting us, setting the table, breathing peace and freedom into details we aren't in control of. When we recognize how He surprises us by using our greatest pains and detours to draw us to a beautiful dependence on Him--freedom and peace replace control and worry.

Put aside what-could-be and instead embrace what is? The invitation is yours. . .choose Real today.

In her debut, speaker, writer, and founder of the Upcycled Jane blog, Pogue advises women to embrace the messy, the painful, and the ho-hum of everyday life. She recounts how she was a type A, overachieving, to-do-list-worshipping woman until her father died and she found her faith. She reminds readers that a relationship with God isnt like hosting a partyits simply RSVPing yes: you dont need to plan, prep, and obsess, you just need to show up and enjoy whats being offered. She urges women to see God in every experience, time of transition, and hardship, and to experience genuine connection with God in even the smallest details and daily activities. Often I live for mountaintop experiences when practically He invites in the simplest of moments, transforming my mind to view schedules, work, and responsibilities as a way to dance in the storm. Pogues writing is exuberant, sanguine, and personal, often including stories rooted in her own experiences as a young mother, wife, daughter, and friend. While at times it seems to lack a clear structure and direction, this book should appeal to fans of writers such as Jen Hatmaker and Lysa TerKeurst, who also write for a female Christian readership. (Dec.)
