Your one life is worth noticing.

Commonplace is a publication that is dedicated to showcasing the beauty of the mundane in Christian women’s lives. By contributing your essay, photo, painting, or poem, you can join in the communal acknowledging of the goodness and redemption of God in the most ordinary of places.

In sharing together, we will discover paths to greater connection and vision for the sacred ordinary; and encounter a community of others to go with us on that path, who will remind us of the things we hold most dear, and will call us back to the redemptive way of the Kingdom when we struggle to see it on our own.
