“Readers and Writers” Episode 2 with Courtney Reissig

June 29, 2017

We are made to create beauty, and we image God by doing that in our homes. —Courtney Reissig



 

Courtney ReissigUnlocking the Bible is thrilled to announce the launch of a new podcast: Readers and Writers with Colin Smith. We’ve started releasing weekly episodes, recorded live at The Gospel Coalition’s 2017 National Conference.

Our second guest is Courtney Reissig, who shares about her writing and her newest book from Crossway, Glory in the Ordinary: Why Your Work in the Home Matters to God. Here’s a summary of the book’s content:

Folding laundry. Weeding the garden. Cooking dinner. Changing diapers. Work in the home can seem so ordinary. Does any of it matter? Is there meaning in our most mundane moments at home?

When the work of the home fills our days, it is easy to get disillusioned and miss God’s grand purpose for our work. As image bearers of the Creator who made us to work, we contribute to society, bringing order out of chaos and loving God through loving others—meaning there’s glory in every moment. In this encouraging book, Courtney Reissig combats the common misconceptions about the value of at-home work—helping us see how Christ infuses purpose into every facet of the ordinary.

Three Compulsions in the Human Heart

John Owen said, “Always be killing sin, or sin will be killing you.” I’ve used the word “compulsions,” because I want us to see that sin is much more than a list of the things we do that are wrong. Sin is a power that resides in the human heart against which we...
