My thoughts- I enjoyed God in My Everything, by Ken Shigematsu, from the beginning. I liked the trellis, because it had Roots, Relate, Restore, and Reach Out, everything we need to be doing as Christians. I thought his eight guidelines were essential. The ones I thought were the most important to me were “build slowly,” “stay flexible,” and “make time for fun.”
Some more things I thought were important:
- Our lives don’t need to be perfectly balanced, just centered.
- We need to memorize scripture and we can do it by imagining what is happening in the scripture we read (I had never thought of doing that).
- Multiple samples of “Rules of Life,” so I had an ideas to help me write my own.
The only part of this book that didn’t mesh with me was the suggestion of picking a day to make as my Sabbath day. The Sabbath only occurs on one day a week.
I certainly learned a lot from Shigematsu. I hope you read this book and learn how to center your life around God.
