About the Author
Dolly Lee believes in the power of God’s love to transform a person from the inside-out. She also has experienced how God’s grace allows second acts and second chances. Dolly has lived and wrestled with the soul care practices and questions she writes about in 7 Days of Soul Care: A Guide to Letting God Do the Extraordinary with Your Ordinary. In 1999, she prayed and asked God to show her how he created and designed her. She wearied of trying to fit her circle in the square expectation of certain key people. God led her on a surprising journey of self-discovery and a deeper experience of his love by taking her through valley lows and mountain highs. In short, God led her on a journey into darkness, shadow, and eventually to greater light. Because of her experiences, she believes in the power of God’s love and presence to transform and redeem brokenness into unexpected beauty. Through stories, Scripture, journal questions, and prayers in 7 Days of Soul Care: A Guide to Letting God Do the Extraordinary with Your Ordinary, Dolly encapsulated highlights of what she learned over the past 17 years. (And what she continues to learn to practice in her daily life.) Since late December 2010, she has blogged at Soulstops.com, written for online venues, such as Tweetspeak Poetry, The Deeper Waters Ministry, The Mudroom, the Jumping Tandem Retreat blog, and had her poem, “Laundry,” published on The Curator. Since fall 2015, she has attended Fuller Seminary. Her short term goal is to collect enough in royalties from the sale of 7 Days of Soul Care to donate $500 to International Justice Mission's courageous work of rescuing and restoring victims of human trafficking.

"...as we do ordinary things, like faithfully working at a job, practicing acts of kindness, or raising children– the brush strokes of daily life viewed close-up–it can appear as if nothing great is being created."
I think all of us can relate.
Dolly's words encourage us to stop striving and instead, create great things with God over a lifetime.
I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book but I was not paid to write this review. This is my honest review.

She says that through doing a series of small things, we allow God to do the extraordinary with our ordinary.
The seven days are centered around these themes:
1. Know God, Know Yourself
2. Embrace Your True Worth
3. Know Jesus, Know God
4. Discern Your Soul’s Condition
5. What Trials Can Reveal
6. Take Steps Toward God
7. Rest and Play
At the back of her book, Dolly provides a great list of recommended resources on soul care, daily devotionals, and online resources.
“When we engage with our extraordinary God in our ordinary, we become exceptional in the ordinary because his Spirit is with us and within us.”
