- Traci Smith, author of Faithful Families
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick,” (Prov. 13:12). At Home in this Life is tonic for what ails us. Its stories, recipes, and projects add up to a comforting but instructive lesson in how to make a home and find peace in the seasons before our dreams come true. Who knew that waiting could be so beautiful or taste so good? Embracing a range of home-centered pursuits, from gardening to serving the homeless, At Home in this Life is exactly my kind of page-turner. I loved this book."
- Christie Purifoy, author of Roots & Sky
"Many of us long for a more whole, beautiful, and ordered life and imagine that a change in our circumstances might bring about what we desire. Jerusalem invites us on the journey she's traveled, with humility, honesty and humor, to transformation through practices firmly rooted in the lives we already have. She offers hope that a new way is possible and a tangible example of learning to faithfully love what is right in front of us!"
- Mark and Lisa Scandrette, authors of Belonging and Becoming and Free
“This book is for all of us who have struggled to embrace the imperfect reality of our present moment. The author weaves her own ordinary story with the wisdom of St. Benedict’s rule, and in doing so invites us all into the gifts of stability, service to one another, and as she says, “cooperation with God in my own transformation.” Her story of everyday transformation is one we all need to hear again and again.”
- Micha Boyett, Author of Found: A Story of Questions, Grace, and Everyday Prayer
"I love Jerusalem's realness, her willingness to walk us through her own story and show us how it mimics a universal story we all know in our bones: God is good, even when things end up differently than how we thought they would. Her wit, candor, and love of ancient practices woke up my bones to a renewed sense of wonder at how God is at work around us all the time, in ways big and small. Her ordinary life is a gift, because it's full of the magic of God—just like all our lives."
- Tsh Oxenreider, author of At Home in the World and Notes From a Blue Bike
"Jerusalem Jackson Greer has written a relatable, warm, and utterly charming book of theology within time and place. The radical act of staying put with a community and a home and a family is an example of faith and hope and healing for these fragmented instant times. This is an incarnational book, an embodiment of how God shows up in our right-now lives with steady surprise and everyday richness."
- Sarah Bessey, author of Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith
“The author writes with poignant conviction about the best of life - that moment when we surrender our roots to the earth for the long haul. Weaving profound truths with ordinary home-keeping tasks, she reminds us that all is sacred and God is vibrantly alive in our mundane. This book is a hopeful liturgy of endurance, even for the city-dweller like me.”
- Shannan Martin, Author of Falling Free: Rescued from the Life I Always Wanted
