Good Winter: A Smallish Guide to Making the Most of a Bleak Season
Available Now! Amazon | B&N | BAM!
This is a book about looking at the brighter side of the winter months. From the stars in the sky to the warmth in our homes. The heart of this guide is Spiritual Formation and learning to focus on the things that add true joy to our lives like God, Family, and Community. In a way, this little book is a memoir of how my family cultivates life in the wintry months.
This is a little book I've been working on for a few years and it seemed liked the relaunch of Hill Hårow's website was the perfect time to publish it!
Christmas ends. All the festive gatherings and outings cease. We take down the stockings and ornaments and remove the trees. Suddenly, our home seems bleak in contrast to the celebratory month that has just passed. Much of the world views winter as an adversary, and for good reasons. But this little work is not about the bad of winter. It’s about the good in it. As the winter birds arrive with the new year, so too, we can arrive at new focuses and partake in new festivities that embrace the offerings of winter - a Good Winter.
Good Winter is a primer for several subjects - from stars in the night sky to minimalism to spiritual formation - all nestled perfectly into the wintery months!
Each new year gives us a small foretaste of our future glory with Christ, where all is made right. Revelation 21:5 says, "And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” I'm so thankful that the Bible gives us a clear picture of what's coming! The followers of Christ are being made new! Happy New Year from the Higgins Family at Hill Hårow!
A new year is just around the corner and Hill Hårow is set for a new beginning. It’s been a few years since we’ve had a web-presence and we’re glad to be back, with brand new offerings for 2018. There will be at least two books released by Hill Hårow this year and possibly an album or two. Most exciting is the new blog features that will be appearing throughout the year tying into the first book titled Good Winter. For those that are interested to know Returning: Book Three of The Emblem & The Lantern is not far away either! Though I've been working on the series-novel longer, the other release is a bit time sensitive as you can see based on the title. Check out the About Page and read our newly posted bio. I say "our" because this is becoming a family affair now. If you’ve been around here before you might find a slightly different aim for Hill Hårow now. Stay tuned!
