COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. (May 1, 2020)—Debut author Maggie Wallem Rowe’s This Life We Share: 52 Reflections on Journeying Well with God and Others (NavPress, ISBN: 978-1-64158-007-6, HC, $17.99) releases May 5 from NavPress and it is already resonating with readers as it debuted on the Barnes & Noble bestsellers list at No. 59 among all books on Friday, May 1.

Wrote New York Times bestselling author Beth Moore, “I love Maggie Rowe so much and am so thankful for what God has called her to do.”

This Life We Share is a woman’s guide to living well—from the inner journey of dealing with anxiety and insecurity to the everyday moments of waiting and distraction to practical principles for parenting, grandparenting, and aging.

Acquisitions editor Caitlyn Carlson said, “As our world weathers disruption and fear, we’re grateful for Maggie’s wisdom and encouragement about the ways we walk through this life together, even when we are apart. This book is a balm for the weary heart.”

Jesus once said of the woman who anointed his feet, “She did what she could” (Mark 14:8, NIV)—and that is the goal of this book: to provide insights and wisdom for walking through life with the confidence that you’re doing what you can to live well for God, love others, and take care of yourself.
