There is no secret formula to experiencing the sacred in our lives - it just takes practice and practicality.
Signs of love abound everywhere: walking in the woods, in a sacred building, or in a dusty refugee camp.
When we allow ourselves to embrace both ordinary and extraordinary experiences, we can feel the divine anywhere.
Part poetry, part rant, part rumination on her mother’s wit and wisdom, Becca weaves an invitation to create something from nothing.
is 9/10 of love.
Standing in a geranium field, smelling dark soil fertilized by rabbit poop is different from reading about the healing properties of geraniums.
Walking beside a woman in a refugee camp covering her baby’s face from the dust rising from the dry, red dirt is different than imagining how hard it is for moms in camps.
The senses transform information into holy compassion. When we open our hearts to it, we can experience the divine anywhere - like sacred breadcrumbs marking our path.
I have a prediction, or rather three predictions.

ACTIVIST & BESTSELLING AUTHOR
Practically Divine. I can think of no two words that better describe what Becca Stevens offers to our world. Becca learned very early that the best and only way through darkness is to keep moving while reaching out to others - creating a whole community of strong, fierce, loving hands along the way. Becca is our very own Practically Divine superhero in a knitted cape!
