We're an "instant gratification" generation, but the trouble
is, most change happens gradually.
Most of us spend our lives
searching and longing for something more than what is in front of us. Whether it's
traveling abroad or chasing cheap (or expensive) thrills, we're all looking for
medicine to satisfy our restlessness. And, so often, we're looking in the wrong
The In-Between is a call to accept the importance that waiting
plays in our lives. Can we embrace the extraordinary nature of the ordinary and
enjoy the daily mundane-what lies in between the "major" moments?
of breakthrough are not where life's greatest transformation happens; the stuff
that God uses to shape us often lies in the in-between. It's the bus stops and layovers
and DMV lines and moments of unintentional pause that force us to become better
That's not to say there aren't moments of epiphany. There are. It's
just that most of us find ourselves living somewhere in the in-between. Learning
to live in this tension, to be content in these moments of waiting, may be our greatest
struggle-and our greatest opportunity to grow.

The title intrigued me. Although this book was not what I expected, it was exactly what the title suggested! This is a book about making the most of the down time between life events, and how those "in-between" times can be more important to your personal growth and development than the big events! If you are caught in-between life events, slow down and read this book! It might just help put things in a better perspective.
