"Through personal story, neurological insights, and spiritual practices, Tygrett pastors his readers, inviting us to bring our whole selves--our past, present, and future selves, our physical, emotional, spiritual selves--into a life formed by the God who was, who is, and who is to come."--Mandy Smith, pastor, author of The Vulnerable Pastor
"I love this book. Casey offers a simple yet life-altering invitation: to remember. Charting a path that begins in the past, in our memories, he does not let us stop there. Instead, with his coaching, we begin the spiritual practice of cultivating our life's memory collections and find clues to where God is at work in our present and future."--Catherine McNiel, author of Long Days of Small Things
"There are smells, tastes, and moments in life that instantly take me back in time. I have my own mental DeLorean nearing eighty-eight miles per hour ready to shoot me back to another time, but I can never predict when it will reach velocity. Sometimes I wonder why recollections strike, but I've never pondered it deeply until now. Casey Tygrett, with deep insight and a sharp pen, leads us more deeply into what God is revealing to us through our personal and communal stories and how embracing those stories leads us forward."--Sean Palmer, teaching pastor, Ecclesia Houston
