Book Signing with Melanie Shankle


Join us on Wednesday, May 15 when the New York Times Bestselling author, and writer for The Big Mama Blog, signs her books at St. Michael’s Woman’s Exchange. 2:00 - 3:30.

The charming and disarming Melanie Shankle helps her readers to see and make sense of the divine in the everyday. Her book, Everyday Holy, is your invitation to reexamine your life and find the little pieces that create a beautiful picture of a big God. She will also sign copies of Fearless Faith: 100 Devotions for Girls.

It seems to be a rite of passage for every woman: you wake up one day and think, "Wait. THIS is the life I signed up for?"

Melanie Shankle, is brave enough to say it out loud! And Everyday Holy is your invitation to find the little pieces that create a beautiful picture of a big God.

On any given day, she wonders:

Is Instagram making me crazy, or am I actually supposed to have a perfectly curated cup of coffee on my artfully rumpled throw blanket every morning?

Doubts about my faith are normal, right?

Is eating cookie dough straight from the fridge fine as long as it’s organic?

Could it be that loving my family well is my spiritual gift?

It's a common theme: Am I okay? Is my life significant? And how do we measure significance, anyway? Melanie's hilarious and poignant insight offers you the deep breath of relief that God is working in all the moments, no matter how big or how small. In 100 devotions, Everyday Holy: Finding a Big God in the Little Moments invites you to see your life as God intended: rich with opportunity and significance, even on the overwhelmingly ordinary days.

This funny Texan’s commentary on her work and her process… “Anyway, this is about me trying to live life with some semblance of grace and dignity while finding plenty of time to watch a lot of shows on Netflix, waiting for things to go on sale at Anthropologie and trying every beauty product I hear about because aging is for real.”

So join us on May 15. It promises to be a fun afternoon!
