Do you feel like you’re spiritually crashing? God hasn’t given up on working in and through you.
Every believer experiences dry seasons—times when you’re doing all the right things but feel painfully disconnected from God. Bible study? Check. Volunteer in ministry? Check. Daily quiet time? Check. But nothing seems to be working. Discouragement overwhelms you, and complacency sets in.
When author Billie Jauss experienced a jarring realization that her busy life was standing in the way of her connection with God, she began a quest to re-engage. In Making Room, she explores practical, effective ways to troubleshoot spiritual stagnation, including:
- Heart evaluation—Am I experiencing distractions or spiritual attack?
- Discovering God’s will—What does He want me to do with my unique gifts and talents?
- Impacting people—How do I live intentionally and share the gospel in my sphere of influence?
No matter how far away you may feel, God has not given up on His plan for you. Begin letting Him restore you, starting now.
“I wouldn’t have guessed that I had much in common with the wife of a Major League Baseball coach, but Billie Jauss showed me differently in Making Room. As soon as I read her counsel to choose ‘activities that are God-glorifying not schedule stuffers,’ I knew she was speaking my language. In practical and genuine ways, Making Room offers us the tools we need to leave space for God to work in our lives and through our lives. A book to which I’ll no doubt need to return often.” —Cynthia Ruchti, author of A Fragile Hope and As My Parents Age
“Not often can you read a book so honest and feel so at home. Readers will sense the courage it took for Billie Jauss to push past a surface life to one of depth and want to go right there with her. Through her authentic sharing, she offers insight and an invitation for us to recognize how we too can make room for a life led beautifully, intentionally, and uniquely set apart for God. An inspiring read!” —Jan Kern, author, speaker, life coach, and founder of Voice of Courage (voiceofcourage.org)
“This book is a must-read for those of us who confuse doing with being. So many nuggets of truth are tucked away in these pages.” —Gari Meacham, author of Truly Fed, Spirit Hunger, and Be Free, president of The Vine Uganda
“Billie lives life with such full-throttle passion, yet she has learned how to listen to the ‘holy nudge’ that directs one to God’s blueprints. As a recovering control freak, I smiled as I read the process of Billie learning the liberating truth of doing less so God can do more. Billie inspires the reader to release the firm grip on one’s blueprints and with open palms accept the ‘Papa Approved’ script for one’s life! I applaud your transparency, Billie!” —Jackie Kendall, president of Power to Grow Inc., author of Surrender Your Jr. God Badge
“Making Room is a compass for anyone who wants to learn to fall in love with Jesus and find true joy in your life. Billie not only writes from the heart, she lives it! You need to make time for Making Room.” —Rod Olson, author of The Legacy Builder and The Wisdom Lunch Warrior
“I first met Billie Jauss when she graciously hosted me in her home for a World Vision Women of Vision event in Florida. While her life was busy, I immediately recognized a woman eager to allow God to use her to make a difference. Willingness to be inconvenienced, stretched, and moved out of our comfort zones is always the key to seeing God make us change agents in this desperate world, and for this reason, I found Billie Jauss’s honest account of her own personal journey a relatable and inspiring read. I encourage anyone who feels they are too busy, inadequate, or irrelevant to change the world in Jesus’ name to read Making Room!” —Marilee Pierce Dunker, international speaker and author of Man of Vision
