Honest and relatable

I went into this book blind. Amazon recommended it, it looked interesting, and it cost 2 bucks. I didn't expect to find myself immersed in a collection of essays that I couldn't stop reading.

This is the book that I want to recommend to everyone I know - especially those involved in some kind of long term ministry. Those are the people who know first hand that ministry isn't all dramatic stories and lightning bolt moments. Those are also the people who will appreciate this beautifully written reminder that in the middle of the everyday, God is present and faithful - and that he doesn't always look like what we imagine when we're young.
