Title: Woodpecker Wars: Celebrating the Spirituality of Everyday Life


Are you a spiritual person? 


What parts of your life are spiritual?


Sorry. Trick question. 


All parts of our lives are spiritual. Seriously. It’s just that most people don’t know it.


Most people think of church as a spiritual activity and everything else is not, as in secular. They live their life with a spiritual/secular divide. They compartmentalize their spiritual activity, shoving it aside so it doesn’t interfere with the rest of their life. 


It’s time we (re)discover the spirituality of everyday life. It’s time we celebrate the spirituality of living.


  •       Our family and our holidays are spiritual.
  •       Our work and our passions are spiritual. 
  •       Our money is spiritual and so is our health.
  •       Our existence in God’s creation is spiritual.
  •       Yes, every aspect of our life is spiritual.


Let’s explore the spirituality of everyday life. Let’s embrace the spirituality of living. Read Woodpecker Wars to discover more. It’s playful yet profound, quirky yet insightful.

--Abigail's Targeted Tip:


Nonfiction blurbs should lay out the target readers’ problems, solutions the book offers, and benefits they can expect to enjoy.
