God Is Here.

That tiny little sentence can change everything. Truly understanding God's presence is the key to more happiness, less boredom, more rest, less rush, more love, less drama, more peace, less fear.

A deeply satisfying life doesn't require a sabbatical, a new career, or a new year's resolution. As long as God is glorious enough and near enough, you can cast aside the cheap substitutes you've settled for and enjoy the life that is truly life here and now. This book will help you to shake off the guilt and shame of sin and see yourself as God sees you.

Find the joy he has been waiting to give you as you discover how three little words can revolutionize your relationship with God.

Mike Novotny is a copastor at The CORE, is the lead speaker for the media ministry Time of Grace, and serves as the chairman of Conquerors Through Christ. Mike lives with his wife and children in Appleton, Wisconsin.


"Pastor Mike's passion is obvious; his humble spirit is compelling; his humor is disarming; his turns of phrase are delightful. Above all, Mike will love you and poke you and persuade you to put God, GOD, back where he belongs--in the very middle of everything you are and do."

Mark Jeske, senior pastor, St. Marcus Church, Milwaukee

"Mike Novotny's new book 3 Words That Will Change Your Life delivers on the promise. I read it while I was stuck in an Asian airport after a canceled flight. With few options to get out, I was depressed to say the least. But after reading it, my perspective completely changed. Whatever you're facing or whatever you're going through, read this book. It will transform the way you think, and in today's disrupted world, nothing could be more important."

Phil Cooke, PhD, filmmaker, media consultant, and author of The Way Back: How Christians Blew Our Credibility and How We Get It Back
