Love Lives Here

September 10, 2017

By Maria Goff

I have finally made a decision about what kind of book I enjoy listening to on a solo road trip.

First, I only listen to audio books when I travel.  Walking around the house with buds in my ear while multi-tasking, just doesn't work for me.  I'm easily distracted by squirrels or shiny objects.  

Fiction doesn't work either -  I lose track of who is who - unless there is a distinctly different voice/person for each character.

The winning vote for the Happy Trails award?  A non-fiction book read by the author.

Love Lives Here was my selection for this summer on the road.

I first learned of her from her husband, Bob, who couldn't say enough wonderful things about "Sweet Maria" in his book, "Love Does".  Well, she is . . . and her stories are transparent, loving, and inspirational.  It made me want to be called "Sweet Marie" - my middle name. 

[This is a book about discovering what we really need.
There are a lot of second-best options, but we weren’t made to live a second-best life. Finding what we actually need is different than what we are often offered. There are many books full of opinions, steps and programs. This isn’t one of them. This is about craving the things that matter. Things that don’t just work, but last.
In a life that may seem to be all fun and games with an endless supply of balloons, author Maria Goff shows how this life is also lived with intentionality, passionate purpose, and a little planning—all of which make a life rich in legacy. But she had to figure out the help she needed first in order to live the beautiful life God wanted for her and wants for us.
Love Lives Here shares the ways Maria and her husband, Bob, navigated family their way, without clear instructions or a road map. It’s about what they learned to make their lives meaningful and whimsical and how they created a space for their family to grow together while they reached outward.]  ~ Amazon   

Highly recommended!
