The best-selling author of A Good Yarn shares her life story as a means of counseling women readers about God's greater purpose in their own lives, in a personal account that explains how to recognize divine intentions. 190,000 first printing.
Debbie Macomber calls KNIT TOGETHER
the project of her heart.
Whenever she speaks, her theme is
simple: don't be afraid to dream. God
created us for a reason, and when we
come to recognize our deepest longing,
we can discover His plan for our
lives. Full of encouragement and
divine empowerment for women,
the book centers around the Bible's
assurance that God knits each one of
us together in our mother's womb.
Debbie deftly weaves her own story
throughout the book, using the knitting
theme of her most recent bestsellers to create metaphors
that explore God's handiwork in creating us for a purpose.

|Disappointed Jan 19, 2010|
|I was really looking forward to this book because I love Debbie Macomber and have read many of her books. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in this book. I expected it to be more about discovering how we can find God's pattern for ourselves. It was more about how she discovered God's pattern for herself. It really wasn't helpful in the way that I thought it would be. I will still keep reading Debbie's books because I love her writing so much, I was just disappointed in this one.|
|This is a must read. Sep 14, 2009|
|Knit Together is sure to please readers with its funny anecdotes, bible passages, and directions. This book helps readers to redefine success. There is more to success than money. Success is being happy and content with your life, it is finding God's plan for your life. "When you are truly passionate about something that God has designed for you to do, things unexplainably click." We must be courageous and step out of our comfort zones if we are to be a success.|
Debbie Macomber includes hints on how to get organized and how to find balance. Women need a balanced life. We are pulled in many directions. Someone always wants our time. We need to learn to say no. The most important message in this book is to stay close to God. Incorporate prayer and worship into our daily lives.
This is a delightful book. The reader will find life changing advice inside. It is well written. This is a must read.
|Christian Based Inspiration and Encouragement for Women Apr 1, 2009|
|Debbie Macomber's Knit Together starts out with a wonder introduction by Liz Curtis Higgs who calls Macomber a savvy mentor who helps point the way to our God-given purpose in life. An outstanding first nonfiction book, Knit Together is written so that each chapter addresses an area that the reader is created for, such as created for purpose, created for dreams, created for success to name a couple of the twelve chapters, ending with created to worship. |
Using knitting as an example, Debbie discusses how God created us and knit us together to form someone special. This insightful book is motivational, inspirational, and encouraging from the viewpoint of someone who understands. The stories she shares about her friends and family allow us to see the real Debbie and to realize that she really does care. Knit Together is like a fireside chat that is meant to draw us closer to Debbie and to God. We get to know her, not just as the beloved novelist, but also as a mother, wife, grandmother, and friend.
Most chapters begin with scripture from Psalm 139 and a quote to ponder. Each chapter is short enough to use as a daily devotional, and yet provides enough spiritual, mental, and emotional depth to ponder during the day. Sidebars sporadically appear throughout the book tying in how knitting relates to life.
Leading by example, Debbie opens up her heart, soul, and life as she reaches out to her readers. She then encourages each of us to reach out to those who need us. Knit Together is a strong Christian book providing women with the inspiration and motivation we need to live a long and healthy spiritual life.
|Knit Together is Outstanding Feb 9, 2009|
|I highly recommend Debbie Macomber's book, Knit Together...Actually, I am reading it through for the third time and taking notes. This book is an easy to read, in depth and from the heart of the author. She has inspired me to examine my purpose as well as given me courage to write. Since I read her book, I have written one article that was published and a story that wasn't, but I got a response to both of my works. What a rush. Enjoy!|
|How to Work Your Pattern Aug 7, 2008|
|Macomber offers a Christian perspective of why we, as humans, are here and offers a plan for becoming fulfilled. She begins by recommending that one create a purpose or mission statement that draws a life pattern and helps establish balance. She provides a method by which to prevent guilt over saying "no" when others keep one too busy to work within your purpose, or pattern, and she encourages making a plan and working the plan in order to achieve goals. |
Interspersed with her practical wisdom are humorous anecdotes from Macomber's personal experiences of how she became an overnight success in only twenty years. Macomber fans will enjoy this look into the author's life and find encouragement for seeking their own fulfillment.
