ABOUT THE BOOK
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. What we actually need often isn't what we're 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 is a collection of stories that include 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.ORDER NOW
