What is the Book About & How Will it Help Women?

This book is about longings and the deep places of our hearts that ache for something more, something we can’t even always explain. It is about figuring out what do with our dreams and our longings, and how we navigate the tensions between them and our reality.

In Longing for Paris, Sarah Mae will help you:

  • Embrace your longings and dreams by having a Biblical understanding of them
  • Adventure with your kids in the everyday (no big trips or lengthy planning required)
  • See romance in a whole new light that doesn’t require flowers or jewelry
  • Savor your life without leaving your own backyard

Topic Prompts

Looking for some ideas of ways to write about Longing for Paris? Try one of the these…

  • I needed to figure out how to navigate the tensions between my dreams and my reality.
    • How have you struggled with this tension?
  • A fully alive woman can do amazing things for the Kingdom of God, but a half-dead woman will just let the waves of life carry her along.
    • Have you ever felt stuck and like the waves of life were just rolling over you? How did that affect your life and your family? Why do you want to wake up to your life? What are you doing to wake up?
  • The idea of adventure sounds exhausting. I would rather just curl up, drink coffee, and read a book.
    • Doing life with little ones can be hard enough, and the thought of taking them adventuring can just feel like too much. How have these feelings played out in your life?

"The books or the music in which we thought the beauty was located will betray us if we trust to them; it was not in them, it only came through them, and what came through was a longing."
