Guthrie persuasively renders the evolution of a hard-won religious belief that makes room for imperfection and 'does not require us to ignore... the sorrows we experience or the unjustness we see but to believe past it.' This openhearted offering inspires. - Publishers Weekly

Mostly what God does is love you.

If we could believe this, really believe this, how different would we be? How different would our lives be? How different would our world be?

If you ever struggle with your connection to God (or whether you even feel connected to a faith at all!), you're not alone. Especially in our modern world, with its relentless, never-ending news cycle, we can all grapple with such questions. Do we do that alone, with despair and resignation? Or do we make sense of it with God, and with hope? In these uncertain times, could believing in the power of divine love make the most sense?

In this collection of essays, Savannah Guthrie shares why she believes it does. Unspooling personal stories from her own joys and sorrows as a daughter, mother, wife, friend, and professional journalist, the award-winning TODAY show coanchor and New York Times bestselling author explores the place of faith in everyday life.

Sharing hard-won wisdom forged from mountaintop triumphs, crushing failures, and even the mundane moments of day-to-day living, Mostly What God Does reveals the transformative ways that belief in God helps us discover real hope for this life and beyond.

A perfect companion to your morning cup of coffee, this incisive volume—not a memoir but a beautiful tapestry of reflections crafted as a spiritual manual—includes:

- a fresh, biblically rooted look at six essentials of faith: love, presence, grace, hope, gratitude, and purpose;
- an honest exploration of questions, doubts, and fears about the love of God;
- a dose of encouragement for the faith-full, the faith-curious, and the faith-less; and
- …and much more.


This deeply personal collection is designed to engage the practical ways that God loves you—not just the world, but you—and to inspire you to venture down a path of faith that is authentic, hopeful, destiny-shaping, and ultimately life-changing.

I wish I sounded that good with a cold… my only complaint is it didn’t go on forever… Ms Guthrie truly has a gift for writing. And this faith based non fiction… where she shared a little.. just enough that every women born from the mid 60’s to early 70’s now can totally relate… truly felt like I found another kindred friend in the Author… oh but if only I could meet her some day and let her know what a joy she produced on this little book about what God does… Xoxo
