Rob Bell's, "How To Be Here"


Rob Bell, New York Times bestselling author of Love WinsWhat we Talk About When We Talk About God, and Sex God has just released a new book entitled, How To Be Here.  In this bright orange book he lays out concrete steps we can all use to live in the moment and joyfully do the things that make us come alive.

We haven’t read it yet but we hear How To Be Here lays out a number of ways in which we can define and follow our dreams all the while interweaving Bell's personal stories, lessons from biblical figures, and practical advice.  We’ve heard tell that Bell gives his reader the support and insight they need to silence the critics, move from idea to action, take the first step, find joy in the work, persevere through hard times, and surrender to the outcome - well, in that case, we're all in!

Here's how Bell describes his new book in his own words:

Needless to say, How To Be Here is on our summer reading list!  Is it on yours?  If not, why not? 

And, if you've already read it, what did you think?  Are you living the dream, staying in the moment, placing boundaries around "business" so you can drink from the fountain of joy and gratitude?  If so, we might have to move this on our Spring reading list :)

As always, let us know your thoughts, recommendations, living-in-the-moment strategies, etc.   We're all ears, all the time!
