Wake Up to Wonder: 22 Invitations to Amazement in the Everyday

Karen Wright Marsh

( Brazos Press )

In her quest to live a vibrant spiritual life, Karen Wright Marsh had a revelation: she didn’t need to find and follow the perfect plan; she needed people she could follow.

In Wake Up to Wonder, Marsh introduces you to those people–faithful yet oh-so-human Christians from across centuries and cultures. Inspired by their example, she offers playful, simple practices that bring deeper meaning and purpose to everyday life.

In the company of diverse spiritual companions, you’ll journey through physical health, prayer, activism, Scripture reading, creativity, and beyond. Each chapter includes hands-on invitations such as writing prompts, space for personal reflection, and “Try This,” a collage of spiritual and personal experiments anyone can do.

As you wake up to wonder, you’ll discover what these twenty-two historical figures already knew: that a life of spiritual depth, amazement, and connection is within reach–today and every day.
