Why does right now seem so far from where we really long to be?

If you’ve ever: felt disappointed with the life circumstances, relationships, or progress you’re making "right now," longed to do something else but feel bound by your current circumstances, or wondered if you might be missing out on your own life…

This book is for you — a heartfelt letter from author Ruth Chou Simons to you. Learn to:

  • Embrace what God’s Word says is true about right now,
  • See the difficult parts of life as a unique gift,
  • Learn how to flip the script on the hard seasons, and
  • Live faithfully in the tension between what is and what is not yet.

Right now matters and you can choose to press in instead of checking out. Because God’s not through with you yet!
