Publisher's Summary

It's easy to go through days, weeks, even years on autopilot, moving from one activity to another, rarely taking the time to consider what it's all for anyway. Why did God make us? What does he want us to do with the time he has given us? And how can we find out? 

In her best-selling story-driven style, Christian rocker Lacey Sturm shares with listeners the beautiful struggle of learning what one's unique gifts are and pursuing them wholeheartedly. She helps them see each day as a gift from God, find balance in their busy lives, and discover the joy of giving God's gifts back to him by using them to bring him glory. 

Young people especially will love this openhanded and openhearted take on what to do with their lives, as will those who feel like they've been coasting or heading down the wrong path.

Lacey is a Learner

It’s obvious to me that Lacey has opened herself to life experiences and God and that she is also a person who is willing to examine herself and learn from her experiences and listen to God leading her. As someone myself who is beginning my adult life living away from my parents and having more of my own freedom and decisions to create my own experiences and honor God as my own unique individual, I value her insights.

I'm torn between crying and cheering. I love these books and I'm sad that this is her last.

I just finished and I’m going to listen to it again...

A honest account of vulnerability that gently unravels the tightly wound soul. It is the deepest catharsis I have experienced in a long time. Lacey’s journal entries are like post-modern psalms That will deepen your capacity of awareness of the creator in everything, in every encounter.

Buy this book!!

I’ve been a fan of Lacey, and Flyleaf for years. I remember hearing, “All Around Me” for the first time - musical goosebumps going up and down my body. I was in awe, and this book made me in awe, once again. Knowing that these journals, and hardships helped inspire these songs, is just amazing. Seeing how much God used Lacey, just gives me so much hope. Anyone struggling with depression, suicide or just being luke warm will really appreciate this book - even more. Such a great read, and I left feeling so inspired!!

This book is full of life

Thank you Lacey for the new book! I waited expectantly for the new book and I am not disappointed. I will probably even buy the hardcopy and read it again. I listened to the book every morning while walking to the bus and your words helped me on focusing on what the truth is and helped me to focus on not giving up. Thank you, God bless you and Well done my sister in Christ!
