About the Book

When Jesus called his first disciples, he asked them, “What are you looking for?” Jesus knew that we are all searching for something: a relationship with God; a grace-filled way of living; and the answers to life’s most important questions such as “Who am I?” Too often we seek those answers in the wrong places. We can search the world and come up empty only to find that what we were seeking was inside of us all along.

In a part-spiritual autobiography and part-guided meditation, certified spiritual director Mark Ekstrom invites believers to join him on a journey of self-discovery and faith while offering insight into his spiritual ups and downs, doubts, wonderings, and the growth that has brought him to where he is today. Organized as a thirty-day pilgrimage with daily meditations, spiritual seekers are guided through reflection questions, scripture readings, spiritual disciplines, and prayer in order to experience God’s love and grace more fully, foster a deeper spirituality, and continue to build a strong personal relationship with God.

Experiencing Grace leads believers on an introspective thirty-day journey to encourage an awareness of God not as a theological concept, but as a transforming relationship.
