Major League baseball wife compels readers
to evaluate their faith in new book

“Making Room” is the freeing encouragement you need to open yourself to the continual cleansing work of the Holy Spirit

Billie Jauss reminds readers to make room for Him—they only One who can satisfy your soul.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.: “What is God doing in and through you?” It’s a question we all should ask ourselves. When Billie Jauss was compelled to ask herself this question by her pastor, it sent her on a spiritual journey that made her question the stagnant nature of her faith—and the reasons behind it.

Busyness.  Distractions.  Motherhood.  Travel.

As a wife to a Major League Baseball coach and mother to three grown boys, Billie’s life is very full—but she learned that making room for her relationship with Christ and leading others to do so, even within the MLB community, is her greatest joy. She is a dynamic speaker and witness for Christ—whether to large groups or in the baseball stands.

In Making Room: Doing Less So God Can Do More (New Hope Publishers/January 15, 2018/ ISBN: 978-1-62591-535-1/$14.99), Billie shares her discoveries and helps each of us dig deeper toward a refreshed and renewed faith, one in which the distractions of life are put into perspective and we allow God to do more with us and through us. As Paul writes in Ephesians, God can do immeasurably more in our lives than we could think or imagine. Through Making Room, discover all the meaningful life moments that God has for you to glorify Him.

Advance Praise

“I wouldn’t have guessed that I had much in common with the wife of a Major League Baseball coach, but Billie Jauss showed me differently in Making Room. As soon as I read her counsel to choose ‘activities that are God glorifying not schedule stuffers,’ I knew she was speaking my language. In practical and genuine ways, Making Room offers us the tools we need to leave space for God to work in our lives and through our lives. A book to which I’ll no doubt need to return often.” —Cynthia Ruchti, author of A Fragile Hope and As My Parents Age

“Billie lives life with such full-throttle passion yet she has learned how to listen to the ‘holy nudge’ that directs one to God’s blueprints. As a recovering control freak, I smiled as I read the process of Billie learning the liberating truth of doing less so God can do more. Billie inspires the reader to release the firm grip on one’s blueprints and with open palms accept the ‘Papa Approved’ script for one’s life! I applaud your transparency, Billie!” —Jackie Kendall, president of Power to Grow Inc., author of Surrender Your Jr. God Badge.

Making Room is a compass for anyone who wants to learn to fall in love with Jesus and find true joy in your life. Billie not only writes from the heart, she lives it! You need to make time for Making Room.” —Rod Olson, author of The Legacy Builder and The Wisdom Lunch Warrior
