Bring It Home-here's a spiritual memoir that will make you laugh as it touches your heart. Matt Kendziera knows where to find you, and how to help you find what you're looking for.
-Brian D. McLaren, author of Do I Stay Christian?
If our quest for faith leaves us disappointed by systems and people who claim to have the corner on the truth, what are we left with? We are left with the place where it all began.
For podcaster, speaker, and musician Matt Kendziera, much of life has been spent with people telling him who to be and what to believe, knowing deep inside that he was losing himself. The time came for a new approach. In Bring It Home: The Adventure of Finding Yourself after Being Lost in Religion, Matt will take you along as he discovers that the stories of his life help him unearth the more authentic parts of himself that have been there all along. Through remembering a sense of wonder at his childhood home, his instructive failures at being a teacher, and his sublime moments as a prison chaplain, you'll find stories of discovering faith not through beliefs but through experiences and relationships, through joy, sorrow, success, and failure. With simple takeaways in each chapter, Matt's engaging, often funny and touching stories of rediscovery will perhaps inspire you to see the blueprint of your own life.
You were created for a meaningful life and a deep connection to the divine. Time to bring it home.
