Church of the Small Things: A Book Review

Church of the Small Things by Melanie Shankle

The author of this book, Melanie Shankle, is the blogger at The Big Mama Blog (which I've never read because I'm not in the mama phase of life, but I'm sure it's great) and is a New York Times best selling author (all unfamiliar to me, but her other books look fascinating). All that to say, I walked into this book with zero preconceived notions of this author.

I have to say that the book description calling Shankle "easygoing and relatable" is entirely true. Melanie is undeniably relatable, like your best friend from college type relatable and comfortable. She speaks directly to the heart of women of all ages who are longing to find significance and meaning in their normal, sometimes mundane, world of busy activities most of which are traced to little humans. Her premise is that God uses those mundane, boring and small acts of faithfulness.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It's an easy read and left me laughing out loud at some points. I'll be adding Melanie's other books to my "must read" list.
