A life of spiritual depth, amazement, and connection is within reach - today and every day

In her quest to live a vibrant spiritual life, Karen Wright Marsh had a revelation: she didn't need to follow the perfect plan; she needed people she could follow.

Grounded in the embodied spirituality of Christians who have lived it best, Wake Up to Wonder introduces 22 playful, simple practices that bring deeper meaning and purpose to everyday life.

Covering topics such as physical health, prayer, activism, Scripture reading, and creativity, Wake Up to Wonder guides us toward living a centred, abundant life. Each chapter includes hands-on invitations such as writing prompts and "Try This," a collage of spiritual and personal experiments anyone can do.


“Marsh's beautiful new book introduces readers to some of the women and men who have guided her along life's difficult but also delightful paths, helping her--and now us--find a way to wonder and joy." James Martin, SJ, author of The Jesuit Guide
