Have you highlighted, underlined, and folded down the corners of nearly every page in Part 1? We have! Before we get to the replays of Tuesday’s live chats on Periscope, we wanted to announce the winners of the DaySpring giveaway — woohoo! Winners, be sure to check your email for details on how to claim your prizes!

  • Rachel Sampson
  • Kate Cannon
  • Katy Ferris
  • Raebeth McGee-Buda
  • Jenn Grandlienard


(be sure to watch for a special giveaway announcement for anyone with a small group!)



  • Chapter 1: From page 34, what does it mean for you to sit down on the inside?
  • Chapter 2: How is your faith challenged differently during moments of crisis versus moments of ordinary time?
  • Chapter 3: In what ways are you standing at a gate or living in a cul-de-sac?


Take a few moments with a journal or notebook. Divide a page into two columns — “Cities” on the top of one half and “Benches” on the other. Without taking too much time to think, list some cities you are building in your own life. Then reflect on the benches God may be inviting you to sit on.
