God is perfect so we don't have to be.
Do you ever feel like you are chasing perfection?
Perfection is passion, an ideal that makes us feel so strongly about the matters of our hearts that we act in ways that make us later feel shame and unworthiness, like we will never quite measure up. Passion doesn't always lead to positive results. How can we pursue perfection without becoming undone?
In Invited, Bible teacher Christen Price weaves together personal stories with a practical party-planning handbook as she shares her own struggles with perfection when she moved home and began to build community. Her desire for perfection causes her to experience anxiety and melt down when parties (and life!) don't go as planned.
With kindness, honesty, and Biblical truth, Christen will encourage you to:
- Overcome the hurdles of perfection by finding balance instead of breaking down
- Receive others in love by releasing your anxieties to God so you can rejoice in the moments worth celebrating
- Discover the antidote to perfection is embracing the beauty of imperfection and present not only yourself, but your home in an artful way so you can give and receive joy.
Celebrations, whether they be special occasions, a surprise party, or a spontaneous cookout on a Saturday night, are about spending time with the people we love. Hospitality helps us to pursue Christ, the author and perfecter of our faith, so we can invite others to join us in a party we will never forget. Connected to Christ, we find wholeness, completeness, and beauty so we can celebrate the life we've been given.
