What does it mean to be a woman and to make a home? Does it mean homeschooling children or going to the office every day? Cooking gourmet meals and making Pinterest-worthy home décor? In Making It Home: Finding My Way to Peace, Identity, and Purpose, author and blogger Emily Wierenga takes readers on an unconventional journey through marriage, miscarriage, foster parenting and the daily struggle of longing to be known, inviting them into a quest for identity in the midst of life’s daily interruptions.
“Emily gently reminds us that a home is far more than a house. When we open our doors and hearts to others–both far and near–we create a precious space where God and humanity reside richly together.”
–Margaret Feinberg, author of Fight Back with Joy
“Emily Wierenga has a gift for taking readers on journeys of the soul. If you need hope for the future, courage for the next step, and an insightful, honest guide to walk with you, Making It Home will help you find your way.”
–Holley Gerth, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of You’re Already Amazing
“In her beautiful new memoir, Making It Home, Emily Wierenga writes with captivating and uncommon vulnerability, sharing the insecurities and fears that held her hostage and the dwelling place of hope she found when she was willing to courageously love and be loved, right where she was.”
–Renee Swope, bestselling author of A Confident Heart
“Emily Wierenga is one of those rare and extraordinary writers willing to lay it all out there, every painful, private, unbecoming detail of her life. Yet somehow her story becomes your story. Yes, the details might be different but the struggles, doubts, pressures, and fears are the same. But here’s where Emily rises above even the most extraordinary writers: her hopes become your hopes. Her faith becomes your faith. Her prayer becomes your prayer. Her ever-faithful God becomes your God, and through the pages of this book, you feel him pull you to his chest and assure you he has never left your side. Making It Home is nourishment for the heart, clarity for the eyes, and divine comfort for the soul.”
–Rachel Macy Stafford, New York Times bestselling author of Hands Free Mama
