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.
AVAILABLE SEPTEMBER 14
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.

KIND WORDS FOR PRACTICALLY DIVINE
These are the moving stories of broken women and wounded communities healed by the immense power of practical love. Becca has spent decades working for and with women survivors. It’s a life spent in unconditional service, and joyful faith. Practically Divine is a prayer book, a manual for living with an open heart.

NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR
This extraordinary book just might be Becca Stevens' best - and that is saying a lot! Like the healing oils from her famous Thistle Farms, Practically Divine is gentle, powerful, and yes, very practical indeed. Open these pages and prepare to experience the practice of love, a balm for your soul.
The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry
PRESIDING BISHOP OF THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH
Part poetry, part rant, part rumination on her mother’s wit and wisdom, Becca weaves an invitation to create something from nothing.
Becca balances the practical and divine with an inspirational voice in the huge choir of people championing the work for a more loving, compassionate, and just world.
Fearless of the exponential growth of her work, she challenges social norms and inspires women to step up for each other - with grace, generosity, vitality, spirit, and love.
Becca’s experience in building community while creating a justice enterprise make her the perfect guide to lead us down a path towards discovering our own impact. With Practically Divine she writes exquisitely about the stories of women who have overcome and risen up while weaving in her own mother’s sayings with both wisdom and humor. Along the way, she brings her reader into a grounded awareness of the wisdom we each carry within us.
FOUNDER OF NOONDAY COLLECTION AND AUTHOR OF IMPERFECT COURAGE
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.
This book reveals where Becca gets her quick-witted humor, her drive to make things happen, and her undying compassion for all (women) who struggle to be seen and heard. Becca is our very own Practically Divine superhero in a knitted cape!
