Praise for the book
“To be human is to be a homemaker! If you thought you had risen above all that, Aageson shows us how we all want and need to make of every one of our human experiences a place to hunker down, body and soul, and take root. We long to be at home and whole. As we spiral through our developmental cycles and find ourselves off center and clumsily groping, it is some solid sense of arriving at home we grapple for. More than an actual roof, we finally want to be at home in ourselves . . . we want the Divine to find a home in us.”
—Gertrud Mueller Nelson, liturgical artist and author of Here All Dwell Free
“Finding Home offers luminous, grounded wisdom from a luminous, grounded writer. Julie Aageson invites us into a journey of spiritual reflection upon the things that matter most—relationship, story, divine indwelling, vocation, generosity, gratitude, failure, and those pesky questions of meaning underlying them all. Read with pen in hand, this book will open the reader to undiscovered corners of their own soul.”
—Laurie Larson Caesar, Bishop, Oregon Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
