Do you long for something more in your relationship with God?

The good news is that “something” more does not mean “doing more.” God’s not waiting for you to get your spiritual life “right.” He’s desires to commune with you right where you are. So take a deep breath, grab God’s hand, and discover the secret to experiencing God’s presence in a deeper and more intimate way than ever before.

The real question is not “What does God want from you?” but “What does God want for you?”

Sharon Jaynes understands what it’s like to have a “glory ache”—a persistent longing to experience God’s presence on a daily basis. She knows how busyness, striving, and working for God can get in the way of intimacy with God. In A Sudden Glory, Sharon uses Scripture and story to help you erase the line between your “spiritual life” and your “daily life” as you enter the sanctuary of God’s presence even in the middle of your busy, messy day. Here you will find your eyes opened to moments of sudden glory in which the Creator makes His presence known to your personally. Moments in which the Creator assures you of His love as you live and more and have your being in Him. Here you will discover true freedom-the freedom of experience God in a deeper and intimate way than ever before.

Includes a Bible study and discussion guide.

  • Discover the secret to experiencing God’s presence in your daily life.
  • Recognize God’s passionate pursuit and relentless romance of your heart.
  • Accept His invitation to the divine dance choreographed just for you
  • Breathe a sigh of relief knowing that experiencing “something more” in your relationship with God does not mean “doing more.”

Praise for A Sudden Glory

“How do we awaken to the transforming glory of God that is all about us? Heavenly seraphim proclaim that the earth is full of His glory—but why do we miss it? More important, how do we awaken to Jesus, who ‘is the radiance of the glory of God’? In A Sudden Glory, Sharon Jaynes lifts the veil—and invites us right into His heart, where He speaks to our persistent ache for something more.”
ANN VOSKAMP, author of One Thousand Gifts

“In A Sudden Glory, Sharon Jaynes reminds us that the ‘ache for meaning beyond the dailyness of life’ is only found by embracing God’s passionate desire for intimacy. This book is a treasure!”
CAROL KENT, speaker and author of Between a Rock and a Grace Place

“There’s no doubt about it; Sharon Jaynes’s latest project is a love story. It’s about a glorious Prince named Jesus, who is passionately wooing a world full of Cinderellas. The only problem is so many of these would-be princesses have amnesia and have forgotten the sacred romance they’ve been supernaturally written into. A Sudden Glory set off an alarm in my sleepy heart and reminded me to run toward the intimate embrace of our Redeemer!”
LISA HARPER, Bible teacher, Women of Faith speaker, and author of A Perfect Mess

“Cease striving. Such refreshing words in a culture that seems to breed the philosophy that the more you do, the more you get. Sharon Jaynes reminds us that our spiritual yearning for more is not satisfied by checking off a to-do list of religious accomplishments. She brings us to a fresh and freeing understanding that ‘in Him we live and move and have our being.’ The beautiful message of A Sudden Glory continually reminds us of the great love our Father has lavished upon us as His children and the joy of abiding in His presence.”
KAROL LADD, author of The Power of a Positive Woman

“If you ache for something more, something deeper, something greater, something glorious in life and in your walk with God, Sharon Jaynes pulls back the curtain on the heart of God and all He has awaiting you! Don’t settle for the mundane—live glorious! Thanks, Sharon, for helping us travel away from the ordinary, everyday, commonplace, humdrum, dull routine into God’s great, grand, and glorious expedition!”
PAM FARREL, speaker and author of 10 Secrets to Living Smart, Savvy, and Strong
