Debbie Macomber calls KNIT TOGETHER
the project of her heart.
Whenever she speaks, her theme is
simple: don't be afraid to dream. God
created us for a reason, and when we
come to recognize our deepest longing,
we can discover His plan for our
lives. Full of encouragement and
divine empowerment for women,
the book centers around the Bible's
assurance that God knits each one of
us together in our mother's womb.
Debbie deftly weaves her own story
throughout the book, using the knitting
theme of her most recent bestsellers to create metaphors
that explore God's handiwork in creating us for a purpose.
Bestselling novelist Macomber ventures into nonfiction as she encourages Christian women of faith to knit themselves into God's purpose for their lives. Just as many of her novels (A Good Yarn; The Shop on Blossom Street) feature knitting and characters who knit, this narrative nonfiction employs knitting as a metaphor for a creative, persistent and visionary spiritual journey. Fans will appreciate Macomber's lively, positive outlook and the behind-the-scenes look at her personal highs and lows. Macomber joyfully recounts the often arduous road to success, interspersing these difficulties with faith issues such as dreams, risks, success, balance, relationships, work, laughter, gratitude, blessing and worship. Within each chapter, she draws upon Psalm 139 and unequivocally assures readers that God has created every person with a worthy purpose, a dream to be followed and happily realized. Practical as well as inspirational, the guide debunks common misconceptions that hinder dream actualization ("Lie number one: It's who you know. Lie number two: I'm too old. Lie number three: It's too hard"). Macomber's work is both cheerful and cheering, and both faithful fans and newcomers will resonate strongly with her delightful message.
