About the Book

Do you ever find yourself feeling like

God is distant?

Maybe you’re doing all the right things but still feel like something is missing—that there must be more to the Christian life than what you’re experiencing. After all, a name for Jesus is Emmanuel—God with us—yet we may still feel like He is far away, perhaps taking a detached view of our lives rather than one of closeness and intimacy.

What if that could change?

What if being known, loved, and seen by God on a deep, personal level could transform our relationships, help us navigate setbacks differently, and revitalize our communities?

If you are looking for a life that stands out as different from the world around you, if you are looking for peace deep inside, if you could use a little dose of significance, or are desperately seeking belonging, then this book is for you.

The secret to experiencing these things is actually much closer than we might think.

The secret is right here, with us, right now and all the time.

The secret is learning how to walk with Emmanuel.

Read on for a roadmap of how this can happen…
