Holiness is here, and it is now. Holiness is lived out in our lives between us and God the true Holy One. Holiness is meant to be the warm love between one another. Holy is, and holy does. No matter who we have been and what we have done, or not yet done, it is surely never too late.

God warmly welcomes us.

Holiness-Here-PS800

Holiness Here offers practical and inspiring ways to transform your life by helping you see the holiness within your ordinary, everyday life. Holiness is

  • a warm invitation to a new and better way to live
  • a calling for our lives in Scripture
  • a search that marks the life of a Christian (even when we don’t live fully into that reality)
  • a most basic urge—to live and love differently that we did before—because what we believe changes the way we act
Jeff Crosby

"Karen Stiller has dusted off an old, theological word that can be loaded with misconceptions at best and shame at worst, and has polished it into a beautiful diamond of an invitation to pursue a ragged and rough and incomplete holiness in the everyday."
