Discover why you are where you need to be

  Shauna Pilgreen’s “Love Where You Live” reads more like an autobiography of Pilgreen’s experience of following where God leads and finding a way of acceptance and enjoyment.  Raised in Georgia, she and her husband moved to the Midwest where he served as a pastor, and she grew comfortable in the role of pastor’s wife and mother to their three small children.

When God calls her husband to start a church in downtown San Francisco, Pilgreen had to find a new normal out of her comfort zone.  “Love Where You Live” chronicles her journey to loving the big city and the people who live there.

Throughout the book, Pilgreen offers ways we can enjoy serving God where we are.  It is not a story about loving where you live. It is a testimony of living out your calling.

I had a difficult time identifying with the book because I didn’t relate to her story.  Pilgreen’s suggestions are more than just taking you out of your comfort zone and introverts will find it insensitive and off-putting.  However, interacting with your community is a great way to stay connected and see the needs around you.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, and Interviews and Reviews, as part of their Book Review Blogger Program. I was not required to write a review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
